OPPOSITION POLITICIAN: WILL UNBIASED AGC TAKE FAMILEE MEMBER LI SHENGWU TO TASK?

Opposition politician Jeannette Chong-Aruldoss thinks it will be interesting to see what the AGC will do to Li Shengwu for being critical of the court. "If the AGC does not take LSW to take him to task for his statement, then we know that if it is OK for LSW to say "the Singapore government is very litigious and has a pliant court system", it is OK for us to say that too".

OXLEY RD DISPUTE SHOWS DIFFERENT LAWS FOR ELITES, HOW CAN WE “NORMAL PPL” BE CONFIDENT?

Our reader is disappointed by the Oxley Road dispute as it shows double standards in Singapore - one set of laws for the elite, and another for ordinary Singaporeans.

It can be decided by a future government. So there is nothing for the Government to decide now” – why not throw this question back to the Government? Why the urgency to set up a ministerial committee in July last year? With regard to “The real question therefore is why Mr Lee Hsien Yang is asking for an immediate commitment on demolition now. What is the urgency? Until and unless Dr Lee moves out, there is nothing for the Government to decide. It is also a principle that the current government will not be able to bind a future government””. “In response, Mr Lee Hsien Yang said: “We have never asked the Government to allow us to demolish the house now, only after Wei Ling’s departure.” He also questioned again why the “secret committee” on the house was formed in 2016.
