Ladies and Gentlemen,
Singapore's state controlled newspaper the Straits Times online edition of Aug 19, 2009 has this alarming article "3 senior lawyers appointed JC". JC by the way is Lee Kuan Yew's term for Judicial Commissioner, another way of saying "obedient servants who will do anything and anytime for Lee Kuan Yew to pulverise his political opponents"; long explanation but necessary in this case.
The latest batch of clowns or stooges in this case are Quentin Loh, Senior Counsel (another way of saying they have earned Lee Kuan Yew's trust by sustained and long standing boot licking), Steven Chong, Senior Counsel and Phillip Pillay, who for some reason claims to be a doctor!
This latest batch of card carrying Lee Kuan Yew supporters will now parade as Judges and from the Bench will deliver pronouncements on the law, or rather their version of it, always ready to say that 2 plus 2 is five or any other number that Lee Kuan Yew desires as and when he pleases. And from their privileged positions, protected by their 86 year old octogenarian strongman Lee Kuan Yew, they will carry out his wishes by declaring, as and when called upon to do it,that Dr. Chee Soon Juan, Lee Kuan Yew's political opponent a child molester or any other insult that may please Lee's ears.
And they would say, if that was what Lee Kuan Yew wanted, that I, Gopalan Nair, had only yesterday murdered 20 people and Francis Seow and Tang Lian Hong, similarly Lee Kuan Yew's political opponents are all unrepentant criminals.
And they would also, on a daily basis make the necessary corrections to comply with their version or rather Lee Kuan Yew's version of the law; to finally make known once and for all to all and sundry that if you want to live in peace in Lee Kuan Yew's island, fall on your knees and praise the dictator. Or else life will be miserable.
I am certain that with this latest addition to the Singapore Bench of Singapore style justice, another 1000 or so Singaporeans would have packed up and left for Australia. Tell me who can blame them?
