Humans Right watch Slams Singapore Government For Jolovan Wham's Jail Term

The Human Rights Watch has releases a statement slamming the Singapore Government on the imprisonment of Jolovan Wham which started yesterday. He was jailed for being guilty of the charge of scandalizing the judiciary. They even referred to the law offence used by Singapore as being archaic, even pointing out that countries such as New Zealand, Canada and Brunei have ceased using the law. The Human Rights Watch went even as far as stating that the Singapore Government is so afraid of facing up to the truths that they turn to this law to silence their critics.

This means they did a gradual and systematic increase in the medication and its strength based on observation. This cannot be the way to prevent an importation of a viral outbreak that had turned pandemic.

PAP MPs Still Not Practicing Social Distancing In Their Walkabouts

It is alarming when a video clip of PM Lee himself circulating hand sanitizer to a group crowding around him.
