Kong Hee the swindler of so many young hearts successfully appeals his sentence and it was reduced by the High Court judges to only 3.5 years! After living the life of a millionaire and round tipping millions into his wife Sun Ho's pathetic and denigrating singing career, now Kong Hee's lawyer, the PAP MP Edwin Tong gets this criminal almost off the hook and with such a light sentence.
What kind of message does this send to other religious leaders who are using their position of influence and power to make millions of dollars in "donations"?? Does a true man of God live in a Sentosa Cove bungalow worth millions?
Edwin Tong the PAP MP is indeed the best lawyer in Singapore now. Now all the worst criminals in Singapore will engage him to fight their cases, hoping to escape justice! Singaporeans now know so long you are rich and have deep pockets, you can hire Edwin Tong, the most prolific lawyer in Singapore to defend you and turn the black into white!
Being a lawyer is a profession but when you are a public figure and a ruling party MP, you are expected to have morals and stand for what is right, not defend a known criminal and get him off lightly after the lives he ruined and the monies he misappropriated! PAP stands for whiter than white indeed, whitewashing Kong Hee's heinous crime!
