Ms Chee Guilty of Contempt of Court....

"When all the parties have completed their examination and closing statements have been made and everyone has gone home, it appears bizarre for the court to solemnly announce that it is exercising drastic remedy to remove at once the immediate obstruction to justice "
- Mr Ravi

I'm not at all surprised. Given their bizarre behavior, insinuation that the court was biased and disrespectful remarks, it is expected that they are found in contempt of court. In her defense, her lawyer Ravi asked the judge if she felt that the Chees' action amounted to contempt, why didn't she just say so in court to warn them of contempt and stop them. Ravi also argued that since they were representing themselves and were not trained as lawyers they tend to be more self assertive. Please lah, these are Chees we are talking about, they don't deserved to be warned okay. Our nation will be a lot safer with them in jail.
.
Now that the case is over, Singaporeans can see for themselves the type of people who call themselves leaders and defenders of justice. These people have no regard for the truth and used the court to assassinate the character of their political opponents. I'm surprised Judge Belinda was so patient with them. The behavior of the Chees was simply scandalous. On the other hand, our esteemed leaders showed nothing but courage when they faced political gangster Chee. Although they had nothing to hide and would be happy to answer all the questions, they were not required to do so because their lawyer had pointed out that almost every single question that the Chees asked were irrelevant.....and sometimes they were irrelevant even before Chee could finish asking. It is amazing how the Chees can generate so many irrelevant questions. Not only were their questions irrelevant, their affidavits were also ruled irrelevant.
.
I'm sure Chee will be jailed again. This time his sister might join him. The whole country will know how hazardous political activism is and that is why it is good we are protected by our apathy. You won't see thousands of supporters sending Chee off to jail, just a handful of close associates. Chee should know better - after 4 decades of PAP govt, the people of Singapore are different from those in Malaysia, Philippines, Hong Kong, Taiwan and S. Korea, Singaporeans have learned to mind their own business.....another opposition member jailed, detained, bankrupted? What is the big deal.

... and in the meantime some within the other opposition parties including Chiam are probably gloating over the imminent fate of the Chees.

Clap, clap, clap for the opposition in Singapore and sad, sad, sad for the people.

They are irritatingly helpful, my neighbours never volunteer to help carry the heavy shopping to my door, neither did I ask to.

they knew the chees will be 'assertive'. why stop the chance to hit the chees with contempt of court? to be fair, there is no way to put forth those questions without sounding rude or disrespectful to the lees.

so is a catch 22. don't question, you lose. question them, you also lose.

fight this in another court, the outcome will be different. now who is scare?

SDP should closed shop, so do WP, NSP and any other opposition party. Dr Chee and the activists should leave. JBJ should stay in JB for retirement for good. Oppositions are just trouble makers, they should all leave and never never come back again.

In this way, our PM and his party need not crack their brains on how to fix the oppositions and of course when there are no oppositions, they don't need to buy votes anymore. When the government need not waste time on unnecessary things like fixing opposition or buying votes, they will have a lot money and times to take care of us whole heartedly. Our kitty will have more than 300 bilion.....

We don't need to worry that our boat will rock. We don't need to lose our sleep during the election period afraid that PAP will lose. We don't even need election anymore as all the trouble makers had left for good and no more oppositions. We will feel very very stable and safe. We don't need to worry about protest taking place because protest is bad for economy and it will affect our savings in the kitty. The most important thing for a country is to increase the kitty amount and only a clever government will know how to do that. The zeros in the kitty is strictly allow to increase only and not reduce. There will never be one zero too many. Without opposition, our government will be able to concentrate on increasing the zeros in our kitty. When our country is rich, even with an empty stomach, we will feel rich and happy too.

A clever government should not be voted out or changed. It should be passed down to their offspring generation after generation just like the olden day China's Tang dynasty, Ching dynasty etc. Clever and good gene is especially important. If our leader is clever, naturally their offspring are clever because they have clever gene. We can rest assured that the country will be in clever hand, clever brain and clever gene for many many centuries to come.

We are lucky and blessed to have such a clever leader and subsequently his clever offspring to take care of us forever and ever in this blessed country.....

your article can be read both ways...smart....some of your sentences seemingly applied to Chees, but i know you meant it for the other family.

Just like the caesar code.

Don't vote for PAP then vote who?
Opposition are political gangster and are of very low quality. Those in parliament oso do nothing, take pay no work. With such low quality opposition, i rather we do away with election. Save resources, we can rest assured that PAP candidates are of much much better quality. Why waste time and money having election?
