For the sake of good order, I have officially sent the following Email to the relevant Singapore parties asking for an adjournment of the April 30, 2010 Summons date in Singapore. As the request is a reasonable one, we shall wait and see if they grant it.
Fremont, California, USA

I presently live in Fremont, California, USA
I intend to come to Singapore to attend the Summons Application which requires my attendance there on April 30, 2010 at 11 am.
I am asking that the date of this Summons requiring my attendance in Singapore be changed to a date at least 30 days from today for the following reasons.
I was not informed of this hearing date of April 30, 2010 in Singapore in a timely manner.
Since I do not live in Singapore but in California USA, I would need sufficient time to make travel arrangements to travel there.
I was infomed first time of this summons in a letter which I received on April 19, 2010 at my office in California, USA. This would have left only 11 days for me to travel there and therefore the notice of 11 days was completely inadequate. I therefore ask the date of the Summons hearing in Singapore to to be postponed for 30 days for me to make the necessary travel plans.
If you do not give me the time requested, you would be seen as if you are deiberatley trying to avoid my presence at the Summons hearing in Singapore, thereby making any decision on this case patently unreliable and flawed for lacking due process.
In addition I am asking for a gaurantee that I will not be harmed while in Singapore by the government of Singapore or arrested and jailed; that you will allow me to enter the country peacefully and leave it immediately after the hearing in Singapore on April 30, 2010 at 11 am.
Further I am asking you to pay for my travel expenses to and from Fremont California to Singapore, reasonable hotel expenses and room and board while in Singapore.
Please let me have your answer whether you are agreeable to all the above terms or to one or more of them.
Since April 30, 2010 is fast approcahing, I request an immediate response from you without delay.
You were already put on notice to my claim in the Email that I sent you yesterday which was a blog post from my blog Singapore Dissident dated April 21, 2010.
