Ladies and Gentlemen,
A Singaporean Roy Ngerng, 33 year old health care worker has discovered that Lee Hsien Loong, the Prime Minister of Singapore who is Lee Kuan Yew's son has embezzled millions of dollars from the island city state's state run retirement funds (CPF). He made this charge last week in his blog Heart Truth.
The trigger happy and quick to the gun Singapore Prime Minister, and his father Lee Kuan Yew who had given him the Prime Ministers' position have the notorious habit of using defamation laws to silence critics throughout Singapore's history, whenever someone criticizes him, to rule the island as a one man one party police state.
Ngern's discovery of the embezzlement came from close analysis of the CPF records which clearly do not match. According to Negerng, the interest rate received for the funds far exceed what is paid to the citizens. As the Prime Minister heads the wealthy state run retirement fund, Ngerng has correctly discovered that the embezzlement was carried out by the Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and posted the details on his blog.
In a May 29, 2014 article in the state controlled Straits Times report "PM Lee commences suit against blogger Roy Ngerng" the Prime Minister has commenced the defamation of character lawsuit in the Singapore High Court. http://www.straitstimes.com/news/singapore/courts-crime/story/pm-lee-commences-suit-against-blogger-roy-ngerng-20140529
By all accounts, there should be no doubt that the Prime Minister is guilty of embezzlement of the citizen's retirement funds. Although Ngerng does not say how much money has been stolen, by all accounts it must run into the hundreds of millions, as the fund is huge, probably in billions.
The Prime Minister's guilt can be nailed by circumstances. He has a propensity for corruption as he, just like his father publicly pays himself and each of his ministers $3.7 million a year, which amounts to more than 5 times the salary of President Obama, the president of the United States, whereas Singapore island is a tiny piece of real estate no more than 700 square miles. In addition, it is believed that he as well as his Ministers, not to mention his father, secretly siphon off millions without any accountability, corruption at scale which would make Mobutu, the dictator of the Congo who stole the diamonds a saint.
In fact the Lee family has a penchant for corruption. About 10 years ago, his father Lee Kuan Yew was discovered corruptly receiving kickbacks in the purchase of some properties in Singapore called Jade Mansions for his entire family. When he was caught red handed, his answer was once again to sue the complainant Tang Liang Hong, a wealthy Singapore lawyer which naturally resulted in his bankruptcy and forced him into exile to Australia to escape further retribution.
The Singapore Prime Minister's guilt in the theft can also be gleaned by his conduct after Roy Ngerng reported it in Heart Truths. Every other Prime Minister of any civilized country would have simply ignored such a charge made by an ordinary disgruntled citizen. The fact that a Prime Minister of a country takes the trouble to sue an ordinary inconsequential private citizen for a thing like this raises grave suspicion. I think we can smell a rat. Only a thief who knows his crime would be discovered would go to this extent to try to conceal it.
You also notice another distinct pattern here. Every time someone accuses him of impropriety he sues you and gets away with it with the help of his judges who are at his beck and call. That way nobody within Singapore ever gets to accuse him of anything while he continues to be as corrupted as he wants.
But you notice he never sues anyone who is outside his island because he knows it is not so easy to get his way. Judges outside are not beholden to him as they are in his island.
It is not impossible for him to sue someone like me in the United States. If he feels that my accusing him of corruption has tarnished his reputation, he can always sue me here. In his refusal to sue anyone outside Singapore of calling him corrupt he gives serious credibility to the charge that he is indeed and has indeed embezzled Singaporeans retirement funds because someone who feels unjustly accused can always sue to clear his name, especially since he has sued the Singaporean Roy Ngerng in his Singapore court.
