Pensions, etc., to cease on conviction
18.
—(1)  If any person to whom a pension or other allowance has been granted under this Act is sentenced to death or penal servitude or any term of imprisonment by any court of competent jurisdiction, whether in Singapore or elsewhere, for any crime or offence, it shall be lawful for the relevant Pension Authority to direct that the pension or allowance shall immediately cease, and thereupon the pension or allowance shall cease accordingly.
[7/97]
(2)  Any pension or allowance that ceases under subsection (1) shall be restored with retrospective effect in the case of a person who after conviction at any time receives a free pardon.
(3)  Where a pension or allowance ceases by virtue of a direction under subsection (1), it shall be lawful for the relevant Pension Authority to cause all or any part of moneys to which the pensioner would have been entitled by way of pension or allowance to be paid to or applied for the benefit of any wife, child or children of the pensioner and, after the expiration of his sentence, also for the benefit of the pensioner himself, in the same manner precisely and subject to the same qualifications and restrictions as in the case of bankruptcy or insolvency provided under section 17.
