Charles Chong is directly interfering in the affairs of Cambodia

Today’s Guardian carries a report of the Cambodian PM being condemned as a dictator by the Asean Parliamentarians for Human Rights.

“Charles Santiago, spokesman for the Asean Parliamentarians for Human Rights (APHR), said the release of Kem Sokha was “far from all that is required”. He said: “Whilst there remains only one political party in parliament and no viable opposition, and until free and fair elections are held, the international community must continue to see this government for what it is: a dictatorship.”

Charles Santiago, a Malaysian Member of Parliament from the Democratic Action Party (DAP) and Chairperson of APHR, was speaking on behalf of APHR.

By the standard of the doctrine of the Minister of Home Affairs and Law, K Shanmugam, this would amount to interference in another country’s affairs.

Interestingly, Charles Chong, MP for Punggol and Singapore Parliament Deputy Speaker sits as a board member of the APHR, and is therefore directly interfering in the affairs of Cambodia.

If K Shanmugam is serious about the ‘doctrine’, he should now order Charles Chong who is a PAP Member of Parliament to come clean. Did Chong support the Statement of Charles Santiago condemning Hun Sen, the PM of Cambodia, as a dictator?

If the Minister of Home Affairs and Law deems it fit to attack Singaporeans who engaged in dialogue with Dr Mahathir on issues of human rights in Southeast Asia, he should now demand Charles Chong to make a statement to Parliament to justify his interferences in the Internal affairs of other ASEAN countries as a board member of APHR.

ASEAN Parliamentarians for Human Rights (APHR) is a human rights intervention force of current and former parliamentarians, who use their unique positions and innovative means to prevent discrimination, uphold political freedom, and promote democracy and human rights throughout the region.

APHR supports the work of civil society and human rights defenders and encourages sustainable solutions that increase pressure on governments and multilateral bodies to ensure accountability and uphold and enforce international human rights laws.

  • aristocrats are privileged:

    aiyoh. the white idiots smart lar. when the white idiots are the ones doing it, all jalan lar and the white idiots have all their kaki doggies to wag their tails in their favour lar. when others not their own bro kaki do, it is serious interference and then have their so-called half-baked ‘experts’ deployed to spin their so-called expert views and opinions.

    the white idiots are indeed very lucky to have a highly rated 154th environment to keep sinkies as daft as possible with their double-standard expert views.

    or the white idiots feel that only their white monkey aristocrats are privileged to indulge in activities that average sinkies can only dream of.

    CC in this capacity makes him a hypocrite of the highest order.
    We should be cleaning our own backyard first,(there is a real need to), before spying into other countries’ lawns /backyards.
    Hope the other members do it one fine day.

  • Diffractions of democrats:

    A philosopher made an appointment with Nasrudin to have a scholarly discussion. When the day came, the philosopher dropped by Nasrudin’s house as planned. However, Nasrudin wasn’t home. The philosopher angrily took a pencil out of his pocket, wrote “Asshole” on Nasrudin’s door, and left.

    Nasrudin finally came home later and saw this. He quickly realized that he had missed his appointment, and he darted off to the philosopher’s house.

    “Forgive my error,” Nasrudin told the philosopher when he got there. “I totally forgot about our appointment today. But when I got home and saw you had written your name on my door, I came here as fast as I could.”

    Didn’t Amos Yee settle this issue when he won TWICE in US Court (and got asylum)? Didn’t his victory expose the hypocrisy of the MIW? So what else is new?

    O, do as I tell you, don’t do as I do. So said the Papies !
    They’re the elites, the privileged. You’re just their servants – not their Masters (contrary to what Someone declared, obviously insincerely). What they can do, you may not.

  • Walk thread carefully:

    We are dealing with angelic people with lofty ideals and the purest of thoughts, so we have to be extra careful of what we utter, less we say something wrong, however well intentioned it may be, but obviously wrong from their standpoint and standard of course, and get fixed into unnecessary trouble.

  • HarderTruths:

    The $G regime think to extend their power in the region through these private enterprises. Just because a country is less developed than $G does not mean the people are stupid or easily fooled.

    Even the old man did not try to interfere in the affairs of other countries.

    $G is a small island and this is the reality the leeders need to face when dealing with foreign countries.

    When push comes to shove and there is a real face off – the ‘punch above your weight’ myth will have $G flattened like prata.

    I believe the iPhone generation will have to find out the hard way that $G is not this special place that can never go wrong.
