Singapore's Attorney General Walter Woon Seong Ming removed from his post.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Singapore's state controlled newspaper Straits Times online edition of March 05, 2010has this story "Back to NUS law School".

It is the story of Singapore's Attorney General Walter Woon Seong Ming, Lee Kuan Yew's Attorney General who was until recently terrorizing his master's (Lee's) political opponents by misusing the law, jailing and bankrupting them in his master's corrupt courts to shamelessly further his own career.

He was only appointed Attorney General within the last 2 years, yet in this time, he had sued the Wall Street Journal, the Far eastern Economic Review and numerous other respected international newspapers the moment they uttered anything unflattering about his master.

During his disgraceful 2 years in office, he shamelessly licked his master's (Singapore Lee Kuan Yew's) boots.

Shameless boot licking was what was going on.

One would have thought such shameless unbounded flattery and obedience to his master would have helped him further his career.

Instead of appreciating this pathetic individual, Singapore's supreme leader Lee Kuan Yew, the Singapore equivalent of Dear Leader Kim Jong Il, was unappreciative.

Instead, he kicks Attorney General Woon Siong Ming and removes him from his Attorney General post.

One can understand why of course.

Singapore is today an international city state with Internet connection throughout the island.

If you blatantly misuse the law like Walter Woon Seong Ming did, it brings a bad name to the island and shows it as a repressive intolerant Stalinist state.

Such as bad name is not conducive to Singapore's advancement.

Walter Woon Seong Ming should have had the brains to have realized this.

Since he did not have it, Lee Kuan Yew decided it best to remove him from his post.

Can anyone blame Lee Kuan Yew in these circumstances?

Poor man, Walter Woon Seong Ming, the Attorney General.

Henceforth he will be quietly teaching the law in some classroom, in obscurity, and no one will hear any more of him.

This is what happens when you blindly follow a despot, because the despot can behave in an unexpected way.

ChannelNewsAsia suggested that the former Attorney General was fired because he "had engaged in a war of words with Dr Lee Wei Ling ", the daughter of Lee Kuan Yew!

Interestingly, ChannelNewsAsia removed the link to the above article from their main webpage.

I'm actually a current NUS law student and being taught Criminal Law by Prof. Walter Woon himself.

I may be biased but frankly I dont think you giving a fair portrayal of Prof Woon.

Having seen the way he teaches Crim Law in class I think he's actually a good man with good morals. From what I see in class he seems like a man who has been jaded by politics that have tainted his work.

Either way, I can't stop or expect to change your opinion on him but this is just my observations.

To Anonymous of March 07, 0908,
I don't see how you could be a student of law and not realize that Woon has been willingly and shamefully violating the Singapore Constitution by charging me, several international newspapers for contempt of court and insulting a civil servant for doing nothing more than criticism of matters of public interest. It appears you do not undertand the Constitution and what it means. I don't think, in your case you are biased, you are just plain ignorant.

I wonder how could anyone who deliberatley abused the law presumably to please his master Lee Kuan Yew, be a good man with good morals. He is a bum and scum, a man who is incapable of earning a living with repectability and integrity.

I am not suprised at your ignorance of these things. You are afterall in Lee Kuan Yew's Singapore University. What else can anyone expect.
