—(1) Subject to subsection (2), the following deductions may, or if the regulations so provide shall, be made from the ordinary pay due to a member:
all ordinary pay —
for every day of absence on desertion or without leave, or for overstaying the period for which leave of absence is granted;
for every day of imprisonment, corrective training, preventive detention, reformative training or detention of any other description, to which he is liable in consequence of an order or sentence of a court;
for every day of detention imposed by a disciplinary officer pursuant to section 75;
for every day during which he is in a drug rehabilitation centre;
for every day during which he is in hospital on account of sickness certified by the proper medical officer attending on him at the hospital to have been caused by a service offence committed by him;
the sum required to make good any compensation which a disciplinary officer has in exercise of the powers conferred by section 75(3) ordered him to pay to any person;
the sum to make good any compensation which a disciplinary officer has pursuant to section 75(4) ordered him to pay to the Government;
the sum required to pay any fine or penalty which a disciplinary officer before which he has been charged with a service offence has ordered him to pay; and
the sum which he is required to pay as contribution to the Government pursuant to an order made under section 92(3).
(2) The total amount of deductions from the ordinary pay due to a member in respect of the sums referred to in subsection (1) shall not exceed such sums as will leave to him less than $2 a day; and a member shall not be subjected to any deduction greater than the sums which he has been ordered to pay to make good the loss or damage.
—(1) Any sum authorised by this Act to be deducted from the ordinary pay of a member may, without prejudice to any other mode of recovering the same, be deducted from the ordinary pay or from any sum due to the member, in such manner, and when deducted or recovered may be appropriated in such manner, as may from time to time be directed by the regulations.
(2) The regulations may from time to time declare what shall, for the purposes of this Act relating to deductions from pay, be deemed to constitute a day of absence or a day of imprisonment or detention, so, however, that —
no person shall be treated as absent, imprisoned or detained for the purposes of this Act unless the absence, imprisonment or detention has lasted 6 hours or more, except where the absence prevented the absentee from fulfilling any duty;
a period of absence, imprisonment or detention which commences before and ends after midnight may be reckoned as a day;
the number of days shall be reckoned as from the time when the absence, imprisonment or detention commences; and
no period of less than 24 hours shall be reckoned as more than one day.
91. Without prejudice to section 19 of the Financial Procedure Act (Cap. 68) —
where, during or at the conclusion of a trial by a disciplinary officer, the disciplinary officer —
makes an order under section 75(4) for the payment of compensation for part of the loss of or damage to service property; or
does not make any order for the payment of compensation for the loss of or damage to service property; or
where there is any loss of or damage to any service property which was caused by the commission of an offence which has been dealt with by a court,
the Commissioner may write off the full value or part thereof of the loss or damage to service property which remains irrecoverable or unrecovered.
