AGC has written to man who posted ‘fake news’ about lawyer who defended City Harvest Church leaders?

I find it amusing and even more entertaining by the day, since K. Shanmugam became our Law and Home Affairs Minister in a Cabinet reshuffle before the last election.

He has repeatedly “defended” and sought to “protect” the integrity of the Judiciary when no one in the public has ever called our Justices into disrepute! In fact, the public is clear that the sole failure to mete out the full punishment of the law on the City Harvest perpetrators was due to the oversight of both the PAP and WP lawmakers we have elected into Parliament. And what is worse, those laws set by past and present PAP MPs tended to side with businesses and directors even more than they protected the blue collared workers who commit offences at the direction of their bosses.

Not only is our Criminal code “lopsided” and severely “lagging”, so are the Traffic Accident Compensation Act in the Civil code that outwardly shields the Private and Foreign Insurers against Citizens who are unfortunate enough to meet with an accident. These Insurers with deep pockets are often allowed leeway to delay proceedings, cast undue doubt on State doctors’ medical reports, in addition to putting victims through stressful times on the stand by impugning on their integrity after they have suffered the ordeals.

It is also an undeniable face that Mr Kong Hee was indeed being defended by PAP MP Edwin Tong who did not rescind himself even though he clearly knows the public outcry for this particular case. Like Grace Fu, I do not wish to comment on his intention (or lack of) when he decided to take up this case. What is left to be seen if he believes in the integrity of his client enough to convert from his Roman Catholicism to become a “City Harvester”!

    I do not see anything wrong by saying PAP MP lawyer saved them. He is saying that PAP MP lawyer is a good lawyer and saved them for serving a longer jail term. That’s it period, whats wrong?? The PAP MP lawyer should be thankful for posting his ability.

    Me too, fully support the view that he is stating the fact that the lawyer defending the two accuse is a PAP MP. Is his comments not true? Rather, the law Minister failed to mention that ‘it is a conflict of interest’

    Edwin Tong is MP elected thru Marine Parade GRC under the arm of emeritus Senior Minister Goh,Chok Tong, not just any ordinary member of the party.

    Just like one netizen has said there r so many cases like Khaw vs Heng on truth of medical cost for minister. Many wonder ESM and LHL paid which rates (Khaw or Heng) when they were medically treated not too long ago for their ailment somewhat worth reporting by ST reporters implying some serious worthy for their concern to report that cause concern of eroding trust on PAP intention to work for the interest and benefits of ordinary citizens or for the aliens and alarmingly for themselves and plps.

    Is this another case? Rather the big talk on legalized aPower to detain without trial, ISA in opacity like nepotism under democracy cover. One netizen coined it as demoncrazy.
    The trust of citizens seem to be nothing to PAP.Perhaps the sibling flight for safety is a prerunner of what to come. Singaporeans were indoctrinated with tremendous fear of Communism but its involvement in Suzhou and other project has thrown them into confusion. This peaks with the $10 chaitowkwei Minister bragging to Xi that he could manage OBOR best. Like real perhaps like what become to SIN.

    haha. yes COI. mp being part of garment should not represent an alleged offender defending cases brought up by the prosecuting party which is the state.

    It is alright for part-time mps to represent civil cases but not cases brought up by the state. preferably, all mps should be full-time if they are so serious in wanting to represent the constituents at the highest office of the country.

    @ No hope for sgs unless….

    EXACTLY RIGHT – PAPpys pretends they are the moral divine, clairvoyant of mind reading – all rubbish.

    No hope for sgs unless...: They see wrong intentions even when there is none.

    Can anyone not yet fathom this same garbage of law interpretation – two person walking in the same direction with the assumed same motive is ILLEGAL ASSEMBLY?

    Come on mate, GET REAL! A legal silk told an Australian court this rebut – MY HEAD IS ON MY SHOULDER, NOT YOURS, HOW DO YOU KNOW WHAT I THINK?

    So much for inferred speculative conjecture of what two person’s mind is thinking walking together.

    Every night, plenty of working girls assembles in Geylang. Prostitution is NOT illegal in LEE-jiapore but soliciting is. These girls are soliciting for customers – they have the SAME IDENTICAL INTENTIONS proven, how come the LEE-jiapore police not arresting these working girls for “ILLEGAL ASSEMBLY”, charge them for offence and deport them instead of raiding illegal brothels and get the media to hogg the limelight read of law enforcement serious intention to stampede this social pollution?

    One clever judge said this comment beautifully right – YOU CAN’T MAKE BAD LAW out of difficult case.

    @ No hope for sgs unless…

    PAPpys LIKE TO PROJECT A FALSE ILLUSION that they are the font of divine and wisdom in all matters including law and law applications. POPPYCOCK!

    Even PRESENT TENSE admitted to a British journalist that nobody has got a monopoly of wisdom and virtue. He, of course, is right.

    Law is simply law – it is an evolving social phenomena and a living creature of its own and therefore often, rightfully, an object of criticism in and out of the profession. Law and judiciary is NOT moral divine or authority of wisdom/foolishness division. Anyone or any entity seeking to exert its superiority of law interpretation is a goddamned liar of FAKE NEWS.

    Don’t believe me? Here is my proof -

    Professor Hart pointed out, the problems of the moral authority of law is that respect for the principles of legality is often “unfortunately compatible with very great INIQUITY”. German Nazi states in the 1930s and 40 sanctioned mass murder and the ultimate forms of human degradation. But these were “legal” in force in those days. War criminals caught pleaded in defence that they were “obeying orders” in compliance with law demands. Positive law applications runs in deep contradictions to unprecedented criminal brutality and principles of natural law. In modern day context, white collar criminals are no different. The powerful and well connected at the top even in the boardroom is always spared of prosecution and punishments for earthquake size corruption or criminal breach of trust (when they know or ought to know it is gravely offending of law applications) whilst those far less significance of culpable offence BUT OBEYING ORDERS from above were apprehended for sacrificial prosecution (read persecution) to take all punishments as “deterrent warnings” to others not to offend.

    IT IS ALL FARKING HYPOCRITICAL OF FAKE NEWS. Those in the public conscience who dare speaks up will be targeted for nitpicking execution for daring to speak up the stench in the public space.

    Such is the moral righteousness of moral authority of law – IMAGINED of absolute integrity and meritorious of public worship of those “in authority”- in my book, a load of FARKING B*LLSHIT and another bucket of FAKE NEWS packaged for naive gullible public consumption.

    Any attempt of legislate moral law is FAKE and any quarter of law which pretends itself to be beyond public criticism are ALL HYPOCRITES AND LIARS preaching fake morality and fictitious superiority of moral authority. In real life, public distrust of institutions stems from two set of law applications – one for elitism and another for peasants persisting and unlikely to change anytime soon.

    @ ftvgbhnj

    I JUST CAN’T FATHOM THIS VISUAL AND MIND READ CONTRADICTION, nearly fell off my chair! You saw this?

    ftvgybhnj: If SPH were to be the first who publish misleading/doubtful newspaper titles, then who to be blame?

    Straits Times Online has this caption title.

    PAP MPs told not to write to the courts on behalf of constituents PAP party whip Chan Chun Sing.

    But in small print in contents of its publishing has these words of declaration from Minister Chan

    Chan Chun Sing in quote from Straits Times :When approached by constituents over matters that come before the Courts, PAP MPs may write to MinLaw (on procedural issues) and Attorney General’s Chambers (on prosecutorial issues),” he wrote.
    “This has been the general practice, and will remain so.”

    http://www.straitstimes.com/politics/pap-mps-told-not-to-write-to-the-courts-on-behalf-of-constituents-pap-party-whip-chan-chun

    IN OTHER WORDS THE HEADLINE READ OF THIS MATTER CONTRADICTED ITS CONTENTS THEREIN.

    Is the AGC or Minlaw going to prosecute Straits Times for ‘FAKE NEWS’ publishing on this matter of judicial independence and integrity of the judicial system?

    Procedural and prosecutorial issues are and must be FOR THE absolute COURT’S SOLE DETERMINATION but PAPpys in this revelation says MinLaw and Attorney General’s Chambers has a hidden hand in its deliberation or at least some interference with the FULL KNOWLEDGE AND AWARENESS of the Executive Government and worst still, IT WILL REMAIN SO??

    Ask any legal mind,IS THIS APPROPRIATE of outside judicial interference? If it is inappropriate, is there still judicial independence or proven to the contrary. I will bet the public mind thinks it is the CONTRARY.

    I have compelling apprehension that the public mind distrust of judiciary is CORRECT.

    Minister Chan actually changed his mind in the public space of whether MPs should or should not write appeal letters on behalf of its constituents. Doesn’t he was aware that it is A LONG ESTABLISH ROUTINE AND IT WILL REMAIN SO in his determination and asking??
