Ladies and Gentlemen,
Sad as I am, of course, for the victims of his hit and run drunk driving spree in 2009 in Singapore, one cannot avoid stating the obvious.
Silviu Ionescu has had the last laugh.
And the fault, lies to a very great extent on Singapore.
I believe that Singapore's disgraced notoriety for the lack of the rule of law, the history of misusing the law to destroy a long list of Lee Kuan Yew's political opponents such as JB Jeyaretnam, Chee Soon Juan, Tang Liang Hong and Gopalan Nair has seriously damaged the reputation of it's legal system.
I understand that Silviu Ionescu's main argument in the Bucharest court against extradition was the lack of the rule of law in Singapore. I understand he used many of the articles in Singapore Dissident to buttress his claim that Singapore's legal system has been thoroughly compromised and he is unlikely to receive a fair trial if returned. I am gratified that Singapore Dissident has been of some use in disseminating internationally this sad fact, both in Romania and in the European Union. I think the world has a right to know the truth.
A judicial system like that in Singapore which can shamelessly misuse the law in political cases is not expected to behave impartially in any other case.
I understand that Ionescu has been punished in the Bucharest court.
I think he had a fair trial.
Let us not forget Romania is now a member of the European Union and subject to the laws of the union.
Remember, it is not Lee Kuan Yew's Singapore, a place where this 88 year old thug , Lee Kuan Yew, is running amok in the island.
