THE supervisor filmed hitting an employee around the head has been snubbed by his former colleague after offering an apology in the hope of settling the matter amicably.

Mr Alan Lee, of IT software company Encore eServices, went through a friend to offer an olive branch to the alleged victim after a video of the incident was posted on YouTube.

But the 29-year-old told The Straits Times last Saturday that his family does not intend to "settle" the matter with his former supervisor at the software company, and will let the authorities deal with him. He has lodged a police report and a complaint to the Ministry of Manpower.

Mr Lee, who is believed to be in his 40s, tried to explain himself and apologised for his actions to the man's parents and two family members when they met at the company's Jurong East office last Monday.
