Ladies and Gentlemen,
Yesterday Aug 23, 2011, I wrote the blog here titled "Singapore Law Society vs Gopalan Nair, the Judgement, or Justifying the Unjustifiable" enclosing the Judgement and Grounds of Decision from the Singapore court ordering my Disbarment from law practice in Singapore. Please read the judgement.
In it the Singapore Supreme Court of 3 judges had unanimously found that I do not have the attributes of character, integrity, probity or trustworthiness to be able to practice law in Singapore. In other words they have said I am a person of bad character.
The Singapore Law Society which has the responsibility of protecting the Singaporean public from such a person as myself, is also duty bound, as a member of nations in the world, to ensure that every other jurisdiction in which I have a licence to practice law is alerted to the fact that I have been disbarred in Singapore, so that they too could take appropriate action to ensure that their citizens are protected from unethical lawyers who lack honesty, integrity, probity and trustworthiness which Singapore claims I do not have.
This is a courtesy expected of any country worth it's salt in the fraternity of nations.
The Singapore Law Society as evidenced by their own records and by their own admission is aware that I am presently a member in good standing at the Bar of England and Wales and the State Bar of California, USA.
In these circumstances, if the Singapore legal system is to be taken seriously, they should take necessary steps to alert both the Bar of England and Wales of which I am a Barrister at Law in good standing and the State Bar of California at which I presently have an active practice as an Attorney at Law, that Gopalan Nair has been disbarred from Singapore law practice and they should take necessary steps to protect their own public from unethical lawyers like myslef. Surely.
And when they do this, they should serve me a copy of their actions as is requried by natural justice under Common Law.
My question to the Singapore government and their Law Society is this. Are you going to take the necessary action to file a formal complaint to the Bar of England and Wales informing them them that I, Gopalan Nair, have been struck off from the Singapore Law Society for lacking "honesty, integrity, probity and trustworthiness" and will you similarly file a complaint with the State Bar of California of this fact.
If the Republic of Singapore and it's legal system is to be taken seriously, you have to show that you owe a responsibility not only to the citizens of Singapore but also to the world to ensure that a thoroughly despicable character like myself, which you claim I am, should be disciplined anywhere in the world and if necessary disbarred.
If you do not do this, Singapore and it's legal system is admitting that it is nothing more than a Kangaroo legal system where you can say and do anything you want against your critics but are powerless when faced with scrutiny from the rest of the world.
The Internet is a very powerful tool, let me remind Singapore, and this blog post will remain on record for a very very long time for very very many people to read in very many counties in the world.
And let me remind you, that very many judiciaries, universities, embassies and consulates are going to read this and wonder about a country which says these terrible things about a lawyer in their own courts but is unwilling to do the right thing by alerting others.
Let me also remind you that since I was deported from Singapore in November 2008, I have not paid the Singapore court costs of the contempt proceedings brought against me.
My question is whether you are going to take the necessary steps to enforce your court costs of $5,000.00 owed to the Attorney General of Singaproe, which you had ordered me to pay, and which I have not; or are you not going to do anything to recover your money.
Do you want the rest of the world to think that the Attorney General of Singapore is a lion who roars when his master Lee Kuan Yew is around, but turns entirely quiet when faced with the rest of the world?
Finally let me also remind you that the recent court order disbarring me from practicing law in Singapore also included an order that I pay the costs of your proceedings.
Do you have the courage to actually compute your costs and demand that I pay, or will you just suck your thumb and simply go away quietly?
Let me remind Lee Kuan Yew and his Singaporean Kangaroo courts that the world is watching what you do or do not do in this case.
I have managed to get you in a bind in this case.
If you do nothing to enforce your decision and show that you mean business, you will be simply confirming what almost everyone in the world is slowly beginning to think; which is, that you are simply a banana republic with a legal system comprised of Lee Kuan Yew lackeys who abuse the law to punish political dissidents, but a country which does not have the courage to face the world with their claims.
I am waiting. And I suppose so is everyone else reading this blog post, in Singapore, USA, Australia, Canada, Malaysia, United Kingdom, Philippines, Germany, the Netherlands, France and the rest of the world.
What will you do now, Lee Kuan Yew's Singapore?
