Lee Hsien Yang Offered $20k To Help Activist Jolovan Wham In His Court Appeal

Singapore activist Jolovan Wham has expressed gratitude towards Lee Hsien Yang for offering $20,000. Wham is appealing against the High Court which found him guilty of scandalising the judiciary. He previously insinuated that Malaysia's judges were more independent than Singapore's. What will LHL have to say to this now that his brother is helping an activist he is so against? How will this feud unfold?

AGC: ALL WE WANTED WAS APOLOGY FROM LI SHENGWU, BUT HE NEVER GIVE

In claims and counter claims similar to the one that saw PM Lee and his siblings engage each party in their Oxley Road dispute, AGC had said that they offered to drop all charges in Li Shengwu apologised and withdraw his statements, but Li Shengwu had countered that the AGC had misunderstood his post, which he since ammended but did not take down.

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".

APPOINTMENT OF FORMER PAP MP TO JUDICIARY NOT IDEAL

PMO has announced that Mr Hri Kumar, former PAP MP, will be appointed Deputy Attorney-General with effect from March 2017. I was asked by a local paper whether I had any concerns about partisanship, given that Mr Kumar was such a strong critic of AHPETC, our WP-run Town Council.

AMOS YEE IS FREE - BUT GOVT HAS SERIOUS QUESTIONS TO ANSWER

The AGC’s discretionary prosecutorial decisions should be given greater scrutiny and questioning. Whatever it is, a government which applies the law inconsistently, and seemingly in a bias fashion, will create distrust in the legal and judicial system ultimately. Amos Yee should never have been charged at all. The charges against him are tenuous and ridiculous.
