Knight Frank Property Network Pte Ltd previously said it was investigating a woman claiming to be from Hwa Chong Junior College, after being filmed make sarcastic and racist remarks on other commuters on the MRT train.

The real estate company posted an update about the matter on Facebook on April 27, saying that “an associate” had been terminated from the company.

The message did not directly refer to the specific conduct that resulted in the dismissal, but referred to the company’s “core values”, one of which was “to be a responsible company to people and the community”.

He said the company has “zero tolerance for hate speech and racism that threatens the foundations on which Singapore is built,” and thanked those who submitted comments on the matter.

The woman was listed as a registered seller with the company on online directories, including the Public Register of Estate Agents and Sellers – an official government directory maintained by the Council of Estate Agents (CEA).

Its listing in the public registry appears to have been removed from the CEA website.
