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.
