Lawyer Khush Chopra Wary About The Public Gallery Seats Given Out During Leong Sze Hian's Defamation Suit

Lawyer Khush Chopra Wary About The Public Gallery Seats Given Out During Leong Sze Hian's Defamation Suit

According to news reports, all tickets for this open Court hearing were snapped up by 7AM this morning. This revelation caused lawyer Khush Chopra to comment "I wonder who knew the unusually early time that queue numbers would be issued and that only 20 seats in the public gallery would be available. I’m not sure you can say that this trial is being conducted in open court that anyone is allowed to attend in these circumstances."

Lim Tean Heckled By Cops, The Heck Is Going On ?!

Lim Tean Heckled By Cops, The Heck Is Going On ?!

I am highly suspect within the time frame in which this was done. Assuming that these allegations against Lim Tean were pre-existing and not something that would just appear out of nowhere, why did the police specifically muscled into Lim Tean's office one week before that Libel suit ? It could easily be a subtle message to hold his tongue in the presence of Lee Hsien Loong

Lee Hsien Yang: Troubling Circumstances Surrounding Allegations Involving Lucien Wong

The front page of The Straits Times 25 Oct 1986 article "Report made against lawyer for alleged removal of legal files" has been making its rounds on social media. It reported an incident in 1986 where a female senior partner and a male lawyer at a leading law firm were reported to the police for alleged wrongful removal of company files. This issue also caught the attention of Lee Hsien Yang, the younger son of LKY and a Progress Singapore Party member.

Parti Liyani's Case Shows Cronyism-Based Justice System Needs Reform

The recent saga on the acquittal of a maid, Parti Liyani, has sent shockwaves throughout the Nation on the severe state of our Justice system which is in need of urgent reforms. We have always pride ourselves, as MP Jamus Lim puts it, on efficiency and not compassion or the quest for truth. Hence, the situation we are facing now is dire and fast slipping into a scenario similar to Najib Razak’s Malaysia. I wish these issues had surfaced before the elections! Is it too late now, only the PSP and WP MPs will know?

Aljunied Voter Insulted And Disappointed At Being Referred To As Free Rider

Aljunied Voter Insulted And Disappointed At Being Referred To As Free Rider

I, am a potential voter in Aljunied, and I have always identified as a opposition voter. And as Leader of the Opposition (LO) has predicted, I am genuinely insulted and disappointed at being referred to as a free rider. I still contribute to my country, as well as its reserves. If anything, please don’t be a hypocrite PM. Your party has said in Parliament, that we must not let diversity lead to polarisation among Singaporeans. But yet you are creating this divide between PAP and opposition voters.

Commentary: On "Free Riders"

Commentary: On "Free Riders"

As I listened intuitively again to the PM’s speech on Wednesday to the Presidential address of our 14th Parliament, I can’t help but feel the current incessant attacks on the PM’s remarks about “free riders” have been taken out of context. It seemed as though the PM was desperately trying to buy his way out of the argument on the reason not to vote for the Opposition. Political discourse here should be shaped by sharp acumen, logic and sound reasoning rather than just jumping on the bandwagon to draw blood.

Commentary: Civil Servants, Unelected Can Carry This?

Commentary: Civil Servants, Unelected Can Carry This?

Political appointees have no financial role, safe to say merely ‘approving’ the use of the $5 billion. If the PM is talking about decision making, it is the civil servants who are making the decision behind the scene, collating, presenting, advising where the draw down and transfer of money comes from. So is the prime minister trying to draw wool over people’s eyes when he said, ‘It is a big decision, S$5 billion of supplementary budget.

Li Shengwu: My Uncle Bullied His Siblings and Tore the Family Apart

Li Shengwu, who was fined $15,000 on 29 July for contempt of court, said in his Facebook post that his uncle Lee Hsien Loong bullied his siblings and tore the family apart. What has the dishonourable son done to make his nephew and siblings publicly declare their contempt towards him again and again?
