CPF activist Han Hui Hui may face 6 more contempt charges

Ms Han Hui Hui

CPF activist Ms Han Hui Hui, who was last convicted and fined $3,100 for her role in the CPF protest event which clashes with the YMCA event in September 2014 may face more charges.

Ms Han was convicted in 27th June 2016 and fined $3,100 for disrupting a charity event for special needs children at Hong Lim Park in 2014 by leading a rowdy protest, which she organised without approval from the National Parks Board.

1. SGD$2,500 fine because “She rallied her Facebook readers”.

2. SGD$600 fine because she “made vitriolic speeches to denounce the government and various government policies”.

An appeal was subsequently made to the High Court, which was rejected on 22nd Feb 2017 and Ms Han was sent to prison on the same day for failing to pay the fine.

Fresh contempt charges

In a latest posting on her Facebook page, Ms Han wrote that she had just received an official letter from the Attorney General’s Chambers (AGC) dated 13th March 2017, informing her that they are intending to “commence contempt of court proceedings” against her for 6 postings she made on YouTube and Facebook, unless she removes all the offending postings within 7 days and apologises.

From the date of the postings, it appears to have been made while her case was awaiting appeal at the High Court.

If she is found guilty this time round, she faces a fine not exceeding $100,000 or imprisonment for a term not exceeding 3 years or both, per charge.

Postings on inhuman conditions at Court lockups

Ms Han was recently banned by Facebook for a period of 12 hours after she related her supposedly inhumane ordeal at both the States and High Court’s lockups in one of her postings on Facebook. [ LINK ]

In her latest posting (also cited by the AGC for contempt) which was initially removed and later restored by Facebook, Ms Han had complained about the inhumane conditions which she and her fellow female prisoners were put through while awaiting transfer to Changi Prison.

She had related in details how they were subjected to ridicule and harsh treatment from auxiliary police officers guarding the Court’s lockups, most of whom were presumably from Malaysia.

Ms Han also made disturbing revelations  of how she and fellow female prisoners were made to strip-search in an area in plain sight of passing male police officers:

It was done in front of about ten female officers with male officers passing by at the gate. There was supposed to be screen used but they simply put it there for show rather than really using it.

She also alleged that the police officers guarding the lockups at States Court were surfing Facebook and the Internet while on duty and had even watched the female prisoners relieve themselves via CCTVs and even joked about it.

I was being put at the cell that was the nearest to their office. From my viewpoint, I could see that they were surfing the web, mostly facebooking while they were working.

Whenever someone pass motion, they started shouting and asked everyone to gather at the CCTV. The police will then mock how people wash themselves without any tissue and soap. Since the water only come out when being pressed, they laughed at how the inmates were unable to clean their hands properly.

Such is the level of hygiene in Singapore’s prisons.

On a side note, the police have neither confirm nor deny the allegations in Ms Han’s Facebook post, which was made on 25th February 2017. It is indeed understandable though because its a “they say” versus “she say” thingy and hard to gather concrete proof to take any necessary action, even if an internal investigation were to be launched.

What do you think?

.

Updated: MHA has since issued a clarification dismissing Ms Han’s allegations as “baseless”. [ LINK ]

.

* TRE has contacted Ms Han via email to attempt to confirm and clarify certain claims she made which were  confusing in her Facebook postings. We have not heard from her as of this article.

    Some foreign TV programs Showed their crime investigation process was captured completely from the start to the end.

    One of these countries is The People’s Republic Of China.

    If the whole process of HHH’s detention in which sHe said sHe was ill treated is video captured and prove her allegatons are unfounded, sHe will be in trouble big time.

    What HHH described is NORMAL. I’ve got the chance many years ago to visit both Changi prisons as well as IMH (luckily not as inmate), and in both cases what HHH wrote is normal DAILY ROUTINE. The IMH inmates even appeared to be quite happy about it, using the toilet flushing water to wash not only their assholes, but also to wash their face, wash hands, wash feet, and also use the toilet water to BATHE even, as the water hose is off limits to them except for 1 hour during the morning bathing routine. Me seen so much in Sinkie-land that whatever HHH write is bleeaahh to me already.

    More than human right issue, the alleged absues if true amount to sexual outrage of women’s modesty a violation of protection to women’s right to her privacy be it on strip searching or to answer nature’s call. The abuses mus stop and the perpetrators punished by law..

    Believe HHH allegations are true as she has nothing to gain but every thing to lose from making false allegaions. Public should be outraged and raise an outcry if pap govt do not investigate the alleged abuses and take action against those responsible but instead slam contempt charges on the prisoner for her complaints..

    iT IS OUR RIGHT TO KNOW IF the allegations are true. Can social media raise the outcry and demand pap govt to come clean Sylvia as the only woman oppo in parliament, be more pro active as this is not about HHH but about alleged abuses in prison against women inmates.

  • CHEAPSKATE & CONTEMPTIBLE:

    Searching female prisoners in front of ‘passing’ male police officers and watching them doing toilet on CCTV could be directed at humiliating them. But to my mind, the officers could also be exploiting their authority and power to indulge themselves as voyeurism.

  • OWNSELF CHECK OWNSELF:

    From the CNA report, it is evident that::

    1. The investigation was (as expected) not conducted by an independent person/panel ( a judge or commission), but “ownself-check-ownself” SPS’.
    2. The ‘findings’ are nothing but counter statements denying Ms Han’s allegations.
    3. The MHA Statement ends with the usual Motherhood statement.

    OWNSELF CHECK OWNSELF
    Read this statement: “…the Singapore Prisons Service (SPS) interviewed the officers involved and reviewed the closed-circuit television (CCTV) footage and documents on Ms Han’s custody. “

    STATEMENTS OF DENIAL
    Read these quotes:

    “…MHA said she was not subjected to a strip search, but was instead searched by a female officer and had remained clothed for the entire duration.”

    “… adding that a privacy screen is deployed when a search in progress.”

    “MHA said this was also untrue as toilet paper is made available to detainees.”

    “This was “unfounded”, MHA said, adding that the team overseeing the lock-up consists of prisons officers supported by both Singaporean and Malaysian auxiliary police officers.”

    “MHA said Ms Han was provided with lunch during her temporary custody.”

    MOTHERHOOD STATEMENT
    ( favorite ‘salad dressing’ for any official response to serious complaints/allegations), quote:

    “The ministry added that IT TAKES ALL ALLEGATIONS SERIOUSLY AND WILL INVESTIGATE THEM THOROUGHLY…”. (my capitals).

    Can we therefore accept the ‘findings’ as the result of a “THOROUGH INVESTIGATION”?

  • 70% is REAL:

    I can prove why only bery few people support opposing the government.

    1. No one protesting the effectivelessness of WP.
    2. No one speaking up for HHH and AMOS YEE.
    3. No one protesting all the tariff hikes .
    3. No one protesting the more of the same ibflux policy.
    4. No one protesting the angmo pedophile.
    5. No one protesting the non live telecast of parl sessions on internet.

    Most importantly, everyone wears a silly grin and say bohbian lah. Hee hee.

    Totaly acceptance for 50 years, everyday.

    The control is absolute.
    Self censorship.

    Therefore, by the next GE, the votes should be 80% for PAP given that everyday new citizens keep being added.
    They have reaffirmed their stand to contjnue more of he same policies of globalisation.

    No One is PROTESTING.
    THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN.

  • Criticism well taken only if .:

    When LHL publicly said good govt should value all criticism. Many Singaporeans go ‘anh, true or not’. Many also said ‘aiya, he is wayanging 4 Trump’s men to try to get into Trump duanchowchow’s kapada!’ All seem all suddenly enligtened with Nair’s appt to AGC like among the many of the dynasty’s high official planting informers in the households of other officials, advwearies or suspicious loyalty. The well drawn HH case suggests an interpretation that only positive criticism soaked with praise will be received with comendation. The rest will either add load to the garbage collectors or ‘chai’ for the Judiciary system or better becoming grudging contributors to charity or some institution with a distinctive name! Daft Sinkies indeed,
