An open letter from ‘Willy Sum’

Dear Fellow Singaporeans,

It has been a tulmetenous period for both TOC’s Mr Terry Xu and myself, since our undue “arrests” a fortnight ago.

We have been rounded up by top CID officers, possibly under directions from the Commissioner himself! We had our IT equipment seized, the items that have very much been the tools of our fight against modern day oppression and one that brought to light countless discrepancies for public attention and discourse. Otherwise, these contentious issues would go unchallenged and not have brought improvements to the lives of our people.

I was served with a SPF letter dated the day itself, with constant threats of Warrants of Arrest from the Magistrate should I not turn up for questioning on their stipulated day and time. Even the worst suspects have between 2 to 3 weeks to show up for questioning! My personal emails and messages to irrelevant parties like Mr Pritam Singh were also accessed during the “criminal defamation” probe. I feel violated, totally devoid of human dignity and handled like an enemy of the State, akin to the time when Hitler rounded up the Jews for extermination!

What still motivates me to write on social justice issues is the undeniable fact that many pressing matters can be traced to our oligarchy system of governance, which provides little to no checks of an absolute power and State Institutions/Functions have been reduced to a sham! Statements by the establishment to voice out on occurrences we deem suspicious, have been met with threats or the brute force of government agencies.

I am not undermining confidence in the government but that trust has already been eroded since the amendment to the Constitution for a Reserved Presidency, non-committal of the GST hike despite assurances there will not be one until 2025, plummeting housing prices with no solution at sight and not forgetting, the 38 Oxley Rd saga with its many deafening allegations.

Are these the values upon which our Founding Fathers built this Nation? If not, then what happened to them, especially so soon after the demise of Mr LKY? Even as the dust has not yet settled on our case, I urge you to take time to ponder on what kind of society you want for yourselves and if the present system is tenable for your dreams and ideals?

We, the bloggers and civil activists have done all we can in good conscience and often at our own expense and safety, to make heard your voices and fight for what you deserve! We have now been bogged down with lawsuits and criminal charges one after another by the State.

We hope you will continue this strive for a better society and appoint from among yourselves, courageous people to do so as we may not be able to hold on much longer as we wish we could.

#In Good Conscience

    stick to constructive criticisms,will that considered to be breaking the “law’?

    so,does the LAW OF THE NATION PROTECTS THE CITIZENS OR THE REVERSE?

    If not,what is LAW FOR?

    TO BE ABUSED AND TO RAPE HONEST CITIZENS WHO ARE CONCERNED N CARING ENOUGH TO AIR THEIR CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISMS OF BAD PUBLIC POLICIES AND IMPROPER PUBLIC SERVANTS’ CONDUCT?

    WHERE IS LAW SOC?

    These are signs that a dynasty is coming to an end. When the peasants can’t take another BS from the rulers, there will be a revolution. Hopefully, we will see a smooth change/handover to a new government to save Singapore in the next GE.

  • LONG JONG SIAM:

    Contrast this with the Americans when their constitution are abused, I can say, all of them will be on the streets defending for their rights, for they are the real fighters and peace keepers. They are the courageous one as Willy.

    For us trained in the Amy…. what have we learnt? Can we be counted on to defend our country, our rights? Sadly;

    LONG JONG SIAM.

    But, For I say, unless the GE is rigged, otherwise continue with timely sharing of information to relatives, neighbors and friends, maintaining alternative media sites operations are important.

    We shall express our displeasure and non-acceptance through the ticket.

    Now even if LK Y died a second time also won’t change my determination to Vote for Change. I am not going to wait for 9% GST and pay almost 5 times of my income tax amount to them from my hard earn money.

    Like Lim Tean said, all these can be reversed. That’s good.

    Question? if the GE is rigged, what we do?

  • Nothing can be said until VTO:

    There is nothing one can do as long as thry have absolute control of parliament. The omly solution is to maintain a sour ground n the more panic they r the more anti citizen they will become. After vto, the rest is people power as the new govt will try to right what are anti citizenry for the first term of their governance. So keep cool n hold the sour level n let them rage on n bring more anger n intolerance increases towards them.

    Dear Editor,

    Your flashing video on the right is not only eating up cpu functions, but is in fact dominating your own page.

    Tech: I did noticed occasionally that the advertisers have recently added this to their inventory but I seldom see it. Can you please be more explicit as to its placement on the page and the product advertised (a URL of the landing page would help a lot) so we can ban it. Flashing video is strictly not allowed on TRE. Thank you for your feedback.

    I “predict” a Mass riot will come soon !

    I am sure our SPF is “ill equipped” to “handle” any Mass riots if it will to happen in many areas,..ie North, South, East, West and Central,…ALL AT THE SAME TIME !!!

    All these “drills” are just “plain wayangs” !

    Do you think our NS boys from the Army will “obey” ???

    I seriously doubt their capability ,…cos all , if not most,..would “faint” themselves at the sight of blood or probably would be “KO” at the the first unarmed combat contacts.

    A nation of “strawberries” in “costumes” !

    I agree with you but you need to be careful of what you write. One sentence they can have excuse to bring you in.

    It is not a fair world…. you have to be extra careful.

    Willy & TOC

    My deepest condolences but you have been fooled by $G voters into believing they care about the thing you are being punished for.

    You need not sacrifice yourself for these fools. They will only laugh at you. Leave them to suffer their fates.

    Your lives should be lived where you are appreciated and you need to forget this stinking island of ballsless despot worshippers.

  • Durain & Strawberries:

    Aiya all the SP F also not drawing million dollars like the ministers lah, also paying heavy prices in hawker centres, except maybe for some fringe benefits like free parking, better HDB location like that, I think. The worse are the amy boys, only receiving allowances, not even enough to take transport, die during training maybe few thousands, I think.

    But I think all are ignitable depending on Quantity. I mean, Who can accept MiloIndianCumMalay kind of tricks, right or not, worse than the thief.

    Pick one Pick 2 intimidation, yeah we scared, but;
    Like chopping the big trunk trees, when it’s about to be toppled over, at the pinnacle edge of falling….. suddenly you find many people, out of nowhere, stand in line with you, durain and strawberries included.

    Right or not?

    “Are these the values upon which our Founding Fathers built this Nation?”
    What founding fatherssssss? There’s one and only one founding father in the mind of civil servants and poor dependant Singaporeans – “The Lee father”. Although he is dead, but faithful Singaporeans still can’t dismiss him or disconnect him with PAP. Is this a great disaster of current Singapore and Singaporeans or not, everyone knew it is fated and cannot undo their karma.

  • Fear Of The SPF:

    To arrest a molester recently in a condo the SPF has to send in a battalion of well armed Special Operation Forces policemen. What a big joke and waste of resources. They even bought armored vehicles fit with wire netting.

    When it comes to Mass Riot with weapons, the policemen become very street smart. Why sacrifice your lives when you get only a low monthly salary ?

    I have seen this during two occasions. During the Prophet Mohammad Day Procession from Padang to the mosque in Geylang Road, the Malays rioted with parangs/iron rods and burned cars along the way. The Red Car policemen and even the Gurkha policemen just stood on the roads and dared not do anything to stop these rioters. Why ? There were more than 10,000 armed rioters and the policemen were very street smart.

    During the recent Little India riot where thousands of drunkard foreigners from India rioted and started burning police cars and SCDF ambulances, the policemen were seen running for their lives. Even the commanders of the SPF camouflage themselves in civilian clothes at the scene in case the rioter spotted them. This showed that our SPF members are very street smart.

    Now with most male citizens being trained to use rifles, I have no clues on what the SPF members will do ?
