Lee Hsien Yang contributes to Jolovan Whan’s security deposit for appeal against Contempt of Court

Taking to Twitter this morning (22 May), activist Jolovan Wham revealed that he is intending to appeal against his conviction for scandalising the judiciary.

In the tweet, Wham expressed his view that “Justice is not cheap” as the appeal would involve putting up $20,000 in the form security deposit, which he may not entirely get back if his appeal was not successful.

Earlier last year (9 Oct), Wham was found guilty of contempt of court for his Facebook post on 27 April 18, stating that Singapore’s courts are not as independent as Malaysia’s on political cases.

Last month (27 Apr), he had been slapped with a $5,000 fine by Justice Woo Bih Li.

Together with a similar case against SDP’s John Tan, these was the first case brought under the Administration of Justice (Protection) Act, which took effect in October 2017. In Tan’s case, he had sought 7 days in jail as a fine about $2,000 or more would disqualify him from standing for elections.

In an accompanying tweet, Wham added that Lee Hsien Yang has reached out to him and offered to put up the security costs on his behalf. Wham said that he was grateful to Lee for his generosity.

Earlier, Lee Hsien Yang had also contributed to the legal funds in Mr Leong Sze Hian’s defence against the defamation suit brought against him by the Prime Minister.

    Justice isn’t cheap(in principle no money, no justice for most people)

    Well, it has been said or written , a strong and emotional affair with money is the root of all Evil(even preachers need your money and came up with ingenious ways to corrupt their own teachings to get sheep to happily and sillily to part with their blood money).

    So the elites in society cleverly persuaded the people to accept the wisdom of paying leaders according to market(the capitalist baiting your greed).

    So the rich and powerful have more justice than you idiots because they have more “Evil” on their side or in their bank or federal account.

    Mr Lee Hsien Yang, you have done a very good deed. We thank YOU.

    We can imagine how the whole world is now laughing especially China Mr Xi and USA Mr Trump.

    I am very sure that Mr Mahathir is also laughing. (Please PM give him a phone call to confirm. Anyway I am sure he will not pick your call

    PM you really insulted your parents and we are very sure their ashes are rolling. You really bring insult to us, Singaporean. How we can accept such a PM. Please retire and enjoy your final journey and join your late parents ASAP. We gave up on your inability to rule this small red dot.

    In the US, there are organizations that help people to protect their civil rights through the courts. They provide lawyers and funds.

    Singapore sorely needs such organizations.

    So too his sister and wife and his kids especially Shengwu.

    We are fortunate to have some sensibility left among our elite sgs.

    Perhaps,we can have Shengwu as one of our future leaders.
    That will be good.

  • Wham English:

    Wham should be careful with his English, and do not associate his brother the “PM” with LHY in regards reaching out to him, less also giving credit to the wrong guy that could be responsible for putting him there in the first place.

    Probably “The filial son of LKY, Mr LHY had reach out to help him” sounded better.

    Also, grateful to “generosity” sounded terrible.! How do you tune Wham expression of sincerity?

    This guy is just as guilty of making the $G people suffer as anyone else in the familee. Why support him?

    Look at all the positions he has held. Tell me how he got all these positions when locals can’t even get basic jobs.

    Singapore Armed Forces : Brigadier-General.
    SingTel : Executive Vice President of Local Services & later Chief Executive Officer
    Fraser and Neave : Non-Executive Director and Chairman-Desi
    CAAS : Chairman
    Singapore Exchange : Board Member and Chairman of the Audit Committee Islamic Bank of Asia : Independent Director
    Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy; Member of the Governing Board
    Member of the Board of Asia Pacific Investment;
    Chairman of Republic Polytechnic;
    Member of Rolls-Royce Holdings’s international advisory board.

    This is why $G is f**ked. Just because he now has a personal problem with the unfilial one – suddenly he is a hero?

  • Thank you, Mr Lee Hsien Yang:

    We crossed paths many times, in airports and such.

    What we noticed is you are genuine, a humble nice gentleman.

    Thank you for your help towards the bullied.

    We hope you stand against the evil pap regime. Let Singaporeans vote you into New Government. That is, perhaps, the reason why you are born.

    Once again, thank you Mr Lee Hsien Yang.

    Singapore is ready for a non Chinese prime minister. Just like Singapore was ready for an INDIAN malay president.

    So Mr K Jeyaretnam or Mr Leon Perera besides Mr Lee Hsien Yang is more than welcome to be the prime minister of Singapore.

    We are Singaporean Chinese. We have never voted lying pap. We vote anything anyone as long as not pap. And we believe Singapore is today ready for a non Chinese prime minister, just as Singapore was ready for an INDIAN malay president.

  • Flight:

    yeah the same money his family got from oppressing singaporeans for half a century. Makes complete sense right? At the end of the day this is only a huge PR stunt for a slimy wealth obsessed family to create an illusion of being humanitarians. Perhaps they believe that their own self interests will be affected if their image remains constant since their late parents placed them in a bind. Continue with the outright unapologetic oppression and wealth hoarding against the will of it’s citizens or play good cop/bad cop within each other to create a narrative of change. Ultimately nothing they put out there should be taken at face value since they were all complicit in this bizarre dictatorship. When their aged housekeeper gives an interview praising them to the skies with fear/uncertainty written all over her face, what does it say about this entire family exactly? Also if what im saying is untrue, ask yourself this. If a common man said a fraction about LHL that LWL put out there, do you think he will even have a shot at life in Singapore?

  • Legals long vacation:

    Now ministers r prosecutors n judges, better than ISA which stipulates no trial but here there is with minister himself n if he is busily pulling out when share markets n real estate crash come prematurely to their ears, his next trusted bootlicker can have a chance to chalk up his reward card up into the Cabin n so down the harem line of brownosers. So the supposedly legals can have a long vacation it is all in malic good hands.

    Kpkb, you dare! Conflict of interest is paid up with career success. So if charities n business inseparable, ST report fails to clarify that conflict of interest charge only if the charged failed n the charge should be dropped if the business fails. Otherwise the SMOS now Minister will have to be charged for fraudulent claim of no conflict of interests re LHL,s personal lawyer cum AG of AGC n also woman AG of AGO. Very messy right for the epidermal spread of fake evidence, fake legal interpretation, lies through SIN intermingled with sue or not sue the peanut or depending on how hugh the peanut. Presumably the legal mute will have to consult Mrs Woody Peanut!
