Singapore. A word of thanks to Singapore Judge Ch'ng Lye Beng for sending Dr. Chee Soon Juan to jail for a week for distributing a flyer.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

No, I have not gone out of my mind when I say this.

If you really thought about it, we have to thank Singapore Judge Ch'ng Lye Beng for sending Dr. Chee Soon Juan to jail for a week for distributing a flyer.

What I am trying to do just as everyone else who wants to see democracy in Singapore, is to expose the repressive policies and the abuse of law in Singapore.

And each time Lee Kuan Yew and his minions abuse the constitution, the law and the rights of Singaporeans, the cause of freedom moves ahead one step closer to it's goal, as even more people are reminded yet again how bad it has become.

And now, with this Judge Ch'ng Lye Beng sending Dr. Chee Soon Juan, Gandhi Ambalam and Chee Siok Chin to jail for a week each just for distributing a flyer, this judge has in fact served the cause of freedom in Singapore by demonstrating to the world, yet again that Singapore has no rule of law and the Constitution has no more value than scratch paper.

These are the astonishing facts, (astonishing because no one should ever be arrested let alone convicted on these facts) in this case.

On Sept 06, 2006 outside Raffles City Shopping Center, in downtown Singapore, a few days before the World Bank/ International Monetary Fund Meeting, Dr. Chee Soon Juan, Gandhi and Siok Chin had distributed a leaflet which contained the words "Tired of being voiceless 2nd class citizens in your own country without any rights? Sick of ministers paying themselves millions of dollars while they tell you to keep making sacrifices for Singapore?".

You may not believe this if you are not Singaporean but truly, just for distributing a flyer containing these words to the public, Singapore District Judge Ch'ng Lye Beng on Friday December 18, 2009 in the Subordinate Courts of Singapore, sent these 3 Singaporeans to jail for a week!

Each time a tyrant abuses the law to punish his opponents unjustly, the victim of course suffers harm, but in fact the tyrant hurts himself much more. It is in fact one more nail in his own coffin.

Lee Kuan Yew and his servants and minions can say, as many times as they want, through their state controlled newspapers, lies and half truths that they have rule of law but each time one of his judges does this sort of thing, no one in his right mind can ever believe them! A false judgment such as this proves as plain as daylight that if Singapore has rule of law, then the moon is made of cheese after all!

By helping to expose these injustices, such as, by this judge sending these innocent citizens to jail, he is clearly and categorically confirming yet again that Singapore has no real laws to speak of, its courts are no better than Kangaroo courts and the law is what pleases Lee Kuan Yew at any point of time.

This decision, as with all the other unashamed blatant instances of the abuse of law, will continue to subject the Singapore legal system and it's judges to derision, odium, ridicule and contempt in the eyes of right thinking Singaporeans and will help to hasten the end of this one party dictatorship sooner than we think.

And for that we have to thank Lee Kuan Yew's judge Ch'ng Lye Beng. He is, if you really thought about it, on the side of freedom and the rule of law. He has helped to expose once again the misuse of the law in Singapore. Thank you very much, Ch'ng Lye Beng.
