AHTC trial: ST not worth the paper its printed on?

I refer to the article “AHTC trial: FMSS’ How Weng Fan calls WP’s Sylvia Lim ‘hopeless’ town council chairman” (Straits Times, Oct 30).

It states that “She further added on Monday that they were in a political situation and a new MP like Ms Lim would not have been able to handle a situation in which all the government bodies were coming at AHTC.

Things were political from the start, with the audits and the incumbent computer vendor withdrawing a Town Council Management System in 2011, she said.”

I must say I have to agree with Tommy Koh’s facebook post that the Straits Times is biased in its reporting.

What was arguably, the most explosive testimony of Ms Howe was left out.

She said something along the lines that NCS withheld crucial data which made it impossible for the town council to work – do the audit.

    You are absolutely correct, Uncle.

    The banner headlines everyday has been quoting Davinder’s mere assertions as if they are the truth.

    Examples:

    Low Thia Khiang prioritised Hougang staff and WP supporters over residents, says lawyer Davinder Singh

    WP chairman Sylvia Lim lied to town councillors, Parliament, court, says Davinder.

    Such headlines of mere claims by Davinder would result in residents in Hougang and Aljunied having a wrong opinions of LTK.

    bro, amk got rats?

    that is small matter.

    SGP got S$m liars in power, abusing pliant parleeement legislating the illegal into legal. and if 70% sheep asks how come judgment like that, knocked out with the legislated contempt of court law.

    every ffffing illegal thing is legislated as legal so that 70% sheep who voted them into power cannot squeal even if strangled.

    every ffffing pap clown clan S$ member is a liar, by omission or by commission. they all enjoy the S$m they pay each other via a pliant parleeement that okays such daylight stealing.

    only a New Government can right all these legal stealing.

    and New Government can do it, as it is now done in Msia by their New Government.

  • Another Educated Daft:

    We do not need a Tommy Koh to tell us that shittytimes is shitty.
    Many of us are not born yesterday.
    He made that discovery just then because he is not smart.
    Shittytimes have been doing those shitty work since old fiack days.
    We do not read shittytimes, neither do we believe anything it says.

  • Where's My CPF?:

    Shittytimes by doing so it’s trying to shape public perceptions , to give a false impression and extend it eventually to a false reason to bankrupt oppositions.

    Desperate times require desperate measure, hold on to absolute power at all cost and to cover-up corruptions at all cost, just like 1MDB.
    Best selfie mates shared notes and tricks on how to fix adversaries and steal openly.

  • Bloody Sin:

    Nobody can accept fake democracy like Malaysia BN. We need more oppositions to reveal true democracy. Mr Lim Tean is right in his priority to work on CPF issues. Return our money to us at age 55 yo. We can manage our own money and not leave them with CPF board to anyhow transfer it. They suka suka held back by means of withdrawal age and mininum sum, suka suka tell us Medisave saving is insuffucient, therefore must cut money from our medisave to pay MEDISHIELD LIFE. The claim for medical bill is not 100% though, therefore patients have to pay cash. WTF all those insurance are costly. How much of our money have been taken away for Housing, HIP, fire insurance, DPS, Medishield life etc. and are all mandatory. Hope Singaporeans stay united and vote for change.

  • Plantiff's Lawyer Fees?:

    Who pays?

    AHTC Independent Panel will mean residents of Aljunied GRC? Gahment pays will mean us; the taxpayers?

    Aren’t Singaporeans landing up as the real suckers?

    Singaporeans know the 3 WP MPs foot their own lawyers’ fees.

  • plaintiff lawyer of Aljunied?:

    D Singh is representing the residents of Punggol East/Pasir Ris.

    Who is the lawyer that is representing the Aljunied residents?

    What people know is Rajah is representing the defendants LTK, SL, PS and the other 2 town counsellors.

    there’s worse to come!!
    Under the fake news laws, the ST will not be penalised.
    Neither will any member of the PAP whose utterances give
    a false view due to vital info he leaves out, will Also
    not be penalised.
    But you and I, if we use their wrong info, snd thus end
    up drawing wrong conclusions which we exppress, can be
    hauled into court and whacked.
    Why like that ah????

    So it is lawyer Chan representing Aljunied residents.

    PAP brought out their Big Guns in the form D Singh for “former” Punggol East residents.

    The whole case is focus in character assassination. Not a single evidence is produce about the $33 mil. The actual person on trial is the judge. His job & promotion is on trial.

  • Residents of PRPTC....:

    Don’t laugh at the Residents of AHTC, you guys will also be made to pay for Lawyers’ fees with monies from the PRPTC!

    The Million$ can be better used to serve Residents, e.g. Free Year End Party for Poor Residents and Goody Bags for the needy in the GRC.

    Now the money will go to the ‘already’ very rich lawyers!

    Did your MPs sought your permission to go ahead with the lawsuit?

    If no, then ask them to pay from their own pockets (afterall they earn quite alot each month and with ‘fat year end bonus’ coming their way, they can surely afford it!)
