UN HUMAN RIGHTS: SG MUST BAN DEATH PENALTY, OFFENDERS DON'T DESERVE TO DIE

The UN Human Rights Office for South-East Asia condemns the execution of Malaysian national Prabagaran Srivijayan. It noted the increase of executions in Singapore and was concerned about how they are conducted in "secretive" manner. "We reiterate our position that drugs related offences are not considered as a ‘most serious crime’ under international law and should not carry the death penalty. We also reiterate previous calls to the Singaporean government to immediately instate a moratorium on the use of the death penalty, which we believe has no place in the 21st century."

ASAS also cited the SCAP’s General Principles, specifically under its “Family values” section 10.1, where advertisements should not “downplay the importance of the family as a unit and foundation of society.”” In what way does the advertisement breach “community support and respect for the individual”; and “consensus, not conflict”?

GILBERT GOH: OFFICIAL COMPLAINT TO U.N. REGARDING UNFAIR ELECTION PRACTICES

I want to formally lodge a complaint to the United Nations for our country’s recently-held general election. For the record, I also stood for general election twice – Tampines GRC in 2011 and Ang Mo Kio GRC this year. For the recent election, the ruling party PAP won by a landslide majority percentage of 70% – a huge increase of 10% over the previous GE 2011 result of 60%. Many opposition parties suffered from bad losses – right down to the unprecedented 20s percentile mark.

DEAR UN, S'PORE DOES NOT LACK THE FREEDOM OF SPEECH, JUST GO ON THE INTERNET

For your information, Singapore does not lack in freedom of expression. Our government holds open debate on mass media and social media. There is no restriction on public assembly for social gatherings. Public assembly for political purposes can be held at Hong Lim Park. Nowadays, any government official who opens his/her mouth becomes the instant target of venomous replies and rebuttals.

DUMB FOR UNITED NATIONS TO SPEAK UP FOR MISCHIEVOUS AMOS YEE

UN Human Rights organizations speaking out in defence of a mischievous and irresponsible kid? How dumb. They should be closed. They are a disgrace to humanity. They are propagating Western values of unfettered freedom and irresponsible rights. Countries should be careful with these useless organizations. If you listen to them, your problem with get worse and they will blame you for that.
