OPP POLITICIAN: EQUALLY SNEAKY THAT DEMOLITION CLAUSE WAS LEFT OUT OF OTHER WILLS

Opposition politician and lawyer Jeannette Chong-Aruldoss has her suspicions about the Demolition Clause in LKY's Last Will. She thinks it is equally sneaky that the clause was deleted in the 5th and 6th wills, and it was "fortunately" re-inserted into his Last Will. "Suggestions of sneakiness is mere personal opinion. It is certainly not unusual at all for anyone to make several wills, each time changing his mind according to his feelings and according to who's persuasions as he decided to follow. Regardless of whether one followed the 'right' counsel, if he signed the Will voluntarily in compliance with all the formal requirements, the Will is valid and legally binding.

GILBERT GOH: 5 PROTOCOL PROCEDURES THAT THE POLICE SHOULD REVIEW AFTER BENJAMIN LIM’S SUICIDE

Minors who are suspected of committing a crime in school must be handled by MSF or MOE and the parents to be kept informed of what's happening. They are too young to be subjected to our police style of interrogation. The current protocol of no adult-accompaniment must be over-hauled so our minors are protected and proper legal access accorded. Lawyers must be present - I was shocked that during any police interrogation no lawyers are allowed to be present. Stop all 4-man police harassment of individuals at MRT and other public places and stop issuing meaningless police warning to activists and dissidents.
