S'PORE HUMAN RIGHTS LAWYER M RAVI CROWDFUNDS TO CHALLENGE PAP GOVT IN COURT

I just received the Notice from the Malaysian High Court that the Pre Trial Hearing for the EPS Challenge in Malaysia is fixed on 5th July 2017. I will attend the hearing with Malaysian lawyer Selva Barathy to obtain the relevant court directions to hear the case. I have decided to just focus on the EPS challenge for now in london, Singapore and Malaysia all of which has huge implications to Singapore as I have tried my level best to explain and elucidate in all my fb posts and live broadcasts. i estimate the potential total cost orders against me in the event I lose in Singapore will be in the range of $100,000.

HIGH RENTAL AND LABOUR COSTS ARE KILLING OFF LOCAL BUSINESSES

It is with much exasperation that I am penning down this note and I hope you can help share with all fellow readers, the predicaments local start ups like us face not just both in rental and labor costs but also the near inability to obtain any support from MTI or EDB! I am running a local bubble tea chain which has been shrinking due to my immense difficulties in recruiting suitable local staff as after deduction of the hefty rental superimposed by Capitaland and material costs, I can only afford to pay a Singaporean no more than $1250 for a 5 day work week. I personally would love to hire Singaporeans first and I hope our honorable WP MPs like Mr LTK whose speeches I follow and is coincidentally a businessman himself, can give our desperate cries an adornment motion in Parliament as we cannot expect the SCCCI NMP to be doing anything without prior permission from his taskmasters!

Singapore is finding it harder to retain its title as the region's top medical tourism hub as patients eye cheaper options elsewhere while government support for the sector wanes, a new report has warned.
