Singapore's Chief Justice speaks with forked tongue, once again

Ladies and Gentlemen,

It is amazing how in Lee Kuan Yew's Singapore men such as Lee Kuan Yew's Chief Justice, Chan Sek Keong, can say these blatant lies with a straight face. Singapore's state controlled newspaper the Straits Times of July 29, 2011 has the story "Chief Justice Chan on new lawyers' role in next 20 years" in which he says, believe it or not "lawyers are called up to be upholders of justice, said Chief Justice Chan Sek Keong on Friday".

The fact of the matter is, which he knows, as well as I know, as well as anyone else who has lived in Singapore knows is that if you did just what he is saying, you will be in serious trouble including being jailed and bankrupted.

Let me remind you once again who this man is. In 1997 he was Lee Kuan Yew's Attorney General, when Lee Kuan Yew, Goh Chock Tong and several other Lee Kuan Yew's people who were not contesting in the elections at Cheng San GRC, were found inside the polling station on polling day, which was a clear violation of the Parliamentary Elections Act which prohibited politicians not involved to stay away at least several hundred feet of the premises. You can understand the reasoning behind this criminal law surely. It is to prevent any undue influence by anyone to gain an unfair advantage through influencing voters coming to vote.

But when JB Jeyaretnam filed a criminal complaint against Lee Kuan Yew who had clearly committed a criminal offense and should have been prosecuted, this disgraceful man who was then Attorny General, replied for the government saying no offense was committed, believe it or not. His ingenious or rather disgraceful argument was that it was only a crime to come close to the polling station but not a crime to enter it!

If Singapore Chief Justice Chan Sek Kiong, could stoop so low to lick the boots of his master Lee Kuan Yew, how does he tell us that lawyers should uphold justice, just tell me that.

He is the head of a legal system in the island, where the Constitution is legally violated. No one is allowed to protest even alone, and even peacefully. There is no independent press because they are all state controlled. You are not allowed to congregate even peacefully even though the Constitution specifically guarantees it. And Singapore is the only country in the world whose lawyers are not allowed to comment on any laws of Singapore. They do this by the disgraceful expedient of enacting a law which states that the Singapore Law Society is allowed to comment on legislation if invited to do so, thereby making such comment without a request from the government illegal!

Chan Sek Kiong, Singapore's (or rather Lee Kuan Yew's) former Attorney General, is now the Chief Justice and head of a legal profession which has no more than 3,000 lawyers even though his country has 5 million people. Of these, believe it or not, no more than about 400 lawyers have more than 12 years of experience (these are figures released by the Singapore Law Society).

Singapore's legal profession continues to decline and despite all their efforts, are simply unable to attract students into the profession in sufficient numbers, the simple reason being that Singapore law, thanks to this Lee Kuan Yew bootlicker, has been thoroughly discredited.

Chan Sek Kiong has so successfully managed to discredit Singapore law, that it has completely lost it's reputation. Today it is seen as an organization merely to keep the Lee Kuan Yew family in power and destroy and remove anyone who is a political threat to him through the misuse of the law.

Chan Sek Kiong is a man who has spent an entire career, not to uphold justice in Singapore, but to uphold his master Lee Kuan Yew's dictatorial rule over his people, which he does shamelessly for payments of large sums of money.

Singapore's Chief Justice Chan Sek Kiong is the reason for Singapore's continual decline down the slippery slope. His abuse of the law to please his master Lee Kuan Yew is the reason why there is massive brain drain to the west, the continual fall of Singapore's birth rate, and the theft of millions of dollars by the Lee Kuan Yew family which they call, salaries.

Singapore's Chief Justice Chan Sek Kiong is the last person in the world who should be talking of "upholding the law".

Someone should ask him whether the repeated lawsuits against JB Jeyaretnam was upholding the law? Was the repeated defamation of character lawsuits against Chee Soon Juan and his bankruptcy and jail, upholding the law? Was the several million dollar libel award in favor of Lee Kuan Yew against Tang Lian Hong and his subsequent exile, upholding the law? If all these things are upholding the law, tell me, why do we need serial killers then?

In the movie Judgement at Nuremberg, Ernst Janning a Nazi judge, brilliantly portrayed by Burt Lancaster at his trial for war crimes confessed saying that the moment a judge deliberately abused his authority, he ceased to be a judge and became excrement.

I think he said it right. Chief Justice of Singapore Chan Sek Kiong had ceased to be a judge long ago. He has become excrement.

Tony Tan is LKY’s relative.

There is NO NEPOTISM in S’pore’s politics.

Is Chan Sek Kiong related to LKY?

"Contrary to public perception, the White Horse classification is not to ensure that sons of influential men gets preferential treatment. Instead it is to ensure that they do not get preferential treatment." - Cedric Foo

Other wonderful quotes by LKY and his minions here:

This is my favourite:

"If you don't include your women graduates in your BREEDING POOL and leave them on the shelf, you would end up a more stupid society...So what happens? There will be less bright people to support dumb people in the next generation. That's a problem." - MM Lee in 1983

“Please do not assume that you can change governments. Young people don’t understand this” – Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew, post-2006 General Elections

“Three women were brought to the Singapore General Hospital, each in the same condition and needing a blood transfusion. The first, a Southeast Asian was given the transfusion but died a few hours later. The second, a South Asian was also given a transfusion but died a few days later. The third, an East Asian, was given a transfusion and survived. That is the X factor in development.” - Lee Kuan Yew: Race, Culture, Genes

LKY is an equal opportunity insulter

In his memoirs, Lee had revealed that he once told China’s paramount leader Deng Xiaoping that the ethnic Chinese in Singapore were descendants of illiterate coolies and farmers from southern Fujian.

“This had made them less able than the people of Hong Kong or Taiwan, whose ancestors were mainly businessman or technocrats.Singaporeans could function well only as a group, not as individuals. They would never be non-conformist or stand out above the crowd,” he added.

LKY said that many years ago when he was building singapore.

Now he’s saying it again. So he’s thinking of building another singapore?

Problem is we’re no longer in it.

So sad. When can Singapore be free? All these corrupt leaders with their selfish ambitions, they will not be so stupid to forfeit their million dollar salaries and suddenly start to really care for ordinary people? Chan Sek Kiong - another hypocrite. The dark side of Singapore justice.

Right on the dot, GN........

There's another injustice in the making which I hope you will monitor and comment soon.This involves the infantile/ immature PAP MP Tin Pei Ling who blatantly broke the new law introduced by the PAP Parliament themselves not to comment adversely against any opposing party on cooling-off day just before polling day on 7 May 2011.
A police report had been lodged by Nicole Seah, the aggrieved candidate of NSP but todate there is nothing coming out from the Police neither the AG.

I look forward to your response in due course.

Hi there,

My uncle Chan Sek Kiong is borned in poverty to small-time grocery shop owner in a small mining town in Malaysia.

He knows what it is like to be poor, be obedient and suffer unfairly under the British/Malay masters. He understand how Chinese works - give and returning favors, loyality, dun ask, dun tell, just do your unit's work. Perhaps he knows a bit of western laws, but probably disgree with the blindfolded lady statue holding to a balance scale. His world does not work that way.

He is able to sleep soundly at night because he know his place in his adopted land, Singapore.

That is also why he is a Chief Justice whereas you are a political exile, banned from ever returning to your country of birth. You forget who your master is, he is Lee Kuan Yew.

Praise to the father (the master of Singapore),
the son (the current Prime Minister)
and the holey Goh (the top dog eunuch of the Lees)

Lots of juicy news about Tony Tan on SBF forum.

Who is Chan Sek Kiong? Just another nobody. Even Tony Tan's sons are above him (and above the law).

I agree with Anon Mon Aug 01, 07:33:00 PM PDT.

Anyone who is disgusted at how Singapore is run should read THE JOLLY HANGMAN by Alan Shadrake, and decide for yourself which part of the book is in contempt of the Singapore courts.

The publisher put a NOT TO BE IMPORTED INTO SINGAPORE notice to protect itself from being sued. But that should not be an issue with modern technology, such as eBook.

It also seems that these days, the courts/govt which are run by crooks, are thinking that Singaporeans are either incapable or unable to understand complex matter or just want its citizens to continue to live in LA LA LAND.

But if you are interested, you can even get an ebook copy and read using your PC with kindle appl or a kindle.
