Funding target met for appeal to Appellate Court

Ms Ten Leu Jiun Jeanne-Marie

Ms Ten Leu Jiun Jeanne-Marie has on Monday (26th Aug) informed TR Emeritus (TRE) that she has managed to secure enough funding to bring her case before the Appellate Court.

On 10th August, Ms Ten had made an appeal for funding on her blog and TRE for a sum of SG$20,000 being costs for an appeal she intends to file with the Appellate Court. [ LINK ]

Ms Ten has been involved in a lengthy 12-year legal battle with the National University of Singapore (NUS) over a Master’s Degree which she has earned but has been withheld by the university. [ LINK ]

Of the $20,000 required, an interest-free loan of $6000 was offered by a student with the balance met by proceeds from the online crowd-funding and her own savings.

Representing herself, Ms Ten filed the Notice of Appeal at the very last minute on Monday (26th Aug).

Ms Ten would like to express her appreciation to all those who have contributed and/or offered encouragement.

The [email protected] wishes Ms Ten all the best.

    Nothing to say except good luck! I hope that you find what you’ve been pursuing all this time worthwhile!

    A 12 year legal battle takes a lot out of your productive lifetime. And a lot of money went to feed the lawyers & the court system in the process.

    The legal mechanism is an unproductive industry where everyone loses except for the ones holding the court proceedings & their legal players. The only other such industry I know are the casinos.

    Would wish you all the best but my gut feeling is that there will be more to come after you take on a system which is not only authoritarian but also unaccountable to public opinion. There can be only one outcome!

    Court of Appeal judgement cost are even more prohibitive! If the appeals judges awards 100% cost to the defendants ie. NUS. Methinks that $20k deposit wouldn’t be enough to settle the final sum on the appeal on top of the earlier court judgement amount mentioned which is yet to be settled.

    You deserve to WIN…(12 years is a long time and your patience is God-Given)… even if the odds look bad with the current system in place…May the Hand of God & Fair Justice be upon whoever that sits on that Panel and may he/she have the CONSCIENCE of Mind and NOT the CONviction of man to come to a JUSTIFIED decision

  • Just a thought.

    If Ms Ten had spent the 12 years at another Uni other than NUS, she would probably have acquired a post doctorate by now.

    So my curiosity: Why didn’t she?

    I hope Ms Ten is aware that the court fee to be paid when she submits her Appellant’s Case is $3000.00 and a filing fee of more than $1000.00. I think she should budget around $5k even before the appeal hearing starts.

    very few, and probably not in pap Singapore.

    beholdenness in an Asian context, especially in Singapore, exists but very hard to prove.

    the Singapore market is too small for any to risk irritating the beholding so most beholden behave the way seen which in the end results in the maxim, those with S$m rules. sad. very sad.

    good thing is, not a single one of the beholden lives forever. all die to account to their maker. so, in the end, whatever injustice, no matter. all die. short 70 years plus or minus. this is the ONLY solace.

    “Remember Judge Michael Khoo a Righteous man who discharged JBJ and was later Publicly Criticised by a Bastard now in Hell???…”

    You forgot what the Privy Council’s decision as follows:

    Their Lordships have to record their deep disquiet that by a series of misjudgements, the appellant and his co-accused Wong, have suffered a grievous injustice. They have been fined, imprisoned and publicly disgraced for offences of which they are not guilty. The appellant, in addition, has been deprived of his seat in Parliament and disqualified for a year from practising his profession. Their Lordships order restores him to the roll of advocates and solicitors of the Supreme Court of Singapore, but, because of the course taken by the criminal proceedings, their Lordships have no power to right the other wrongs which the appellant and Wong have suffered. Their only prospect of redress, their Lordships understand, will be by way of petition for pardon to the President of the Republic of Singapore.

  • Justice is not tradeable:

    Civilization really means the creation of a human race centred on Justice. Justice evolved see sawing from a free commodity to a high price item in corruption n back to a free commodity in its purest form. No nation should be even qualified to be in any sociopolitical survey if its justice should/can be bought which would literally imply if you cannot afford the fees mandatorily decided by the power therebe, you r not a human in the nation. is this why GCT demands the entitlement of his ministers including himself to multimillions paycheck n that anyone must be as rich to have the right to disagree. A damn joke on daft Singaporeans.
    In the same trait of thought, why should a citizen needs to pay to for offering his service to the nation before he can stand for election to be a member of the Parliament n to be punished again monetarily if he fails to get the mandatory minimum. Chinese political history has irrefutable evidence that honest n dedicated bureaucrats started poor n ended just as poor. Definitely this is not what Singaporeans r constantly reminded that money is needed to pay heavily to qualify his offer to serve his fellow men but the return is humongous if he gets to be ministers.Just as Chinese political records of buying a political position was a lucrative investment n the associated chinese political corruption with citizens fats or rather citizen blood n marrow 民脂民膏.
    Cost of Justice is alike all living items has been increasing by heaps n bounds over the years. Is it why Lee HL went public with his obssession of hoping his govt could attract PRC incl HK multibillionaires to come with their loots to Singapore. He may have his wish with the recent billionaires exodus but bananas r bananas. They r mutually distrustful like the alien bodyguards r more trustworthy than Singaporeans!

  • Talking abt alien bodyguards:

    The fact that pap ministers entrust their lives to the alien bodyguards n not Singaporeans is sufficient evidence that pap ministers do not trust Singaporeans. Trust is dual ways. Singaporeans has misplaced their trust in pap m this explain the disastrous effects on the retirement n the future of their children unless they r willing to succumb to the filth of their power dominance to help provide the umbrella they need for their Operation Rats in blackhole SIN.
    But leaks of Operation Rats does occurs with internal steam generated by the rage over cold store. A classic example is between ah heng n chun sin or 兴啊 v 蠢蛇。
    蠢蛇,truly earned the netizens n kopitiam conversationists title of humkachan to his ancesters n baljiazi [敗家子] to the traditionally chinese ed seniors. Only such depraved scumbag could shamelessly shroud off political accountability to a cowardice underhand support of LHY n LWL allegation of lack of filial accountability of their brother n family to their old man as implied with their alleged “dishonorable son” which of course the smart Alecs, humkachan n baijiazi expects the imbercile would not understand which he has indeed proved beyond any doubts that he is right abt is fart source.
    If pap CC does not bury humkachan, humkachan will clow pap into irrecoverable debris in the impending General Election. His threat of no problem to import any number of aliens to dispace Singaporeans Pmets (followed by increase retrenchment of Singaporeans from their jobs to be instantly relpaced by Humkachan!s aliens)n his flaunt of his ill justified multimillions paycheck to a proven beysnd doubt of a true blue SIN trait** by his Brit Scum alike insidious remarks on decent honest SIN working class whose stench n eatery choice exude honest living n can only talk human not not talk fart n earpt fart like the arrogant ingrates蠢or兴.

    The Privy Council case happened in the early 90′s if I’m not wrong.

    And yet the wayang party chairman and then NCMP Sylvia Lim had defended the PAPies during the International Bar Association meeting in Singapore in 2007. Don’t you think that Sylvia Lim was being a trait**?

    As I see it…Sylvia did the right thing in DEFENDING not PAPies but The Nation as it was an International meet…like Donald says if you are NOT happy leave…but this does NOT apply for Sylvia a born and bred SingaporeanPATRIOT if I may add…I watch her in Parliament and she does a marvellous job putting a lot of Idiots in their place…Let’s wait and see how GE soon taking place will turn out…the CHANGE syndrome is moving fast & furious and WP has no choice but to amalgamate and be more receptive towards fellow opposition parties…or will be treated as Pariahs Pretty Soon…hopefully they will CHANGE too…as for the Privy Council I recollect that it was Abolished not long after JBJ hearing by a bast**d who plays God

    Absolute power without another check like Privy council.
    Unfettered rights to milk and abuse.

    If what shittytimes quoted rightly, as below, then what Sylvia Lim said is about national sovereignty, not about Pappies.
    Don’t confuse Pappies with Singapore. Singapore is not Pappies.
    Basically these are dignified motherhood statements made by Sylvia.

    “We Singaporeans are quite capable of deciding what kind of country we want…I don’t think we need anyone outside to canvass our agenda for us.”

    “But I think for Singaporeans and the region, if that influence turns to interference, it will be resented and resisted, not only by the Government and the state, but also really by many of the people.”

    Readers should be very discerning about what constitutes an external influence and it’s legitimacy should be accessed in the context of the event happening.
    If the citizens plead for international help to bring down an oppressive regime, will that constitute an external influence and is it necessarily bad?

    So think, but do not read too much into statements made in this kind of would be self serving forums in any fake democracy.

    One will never know what it really is until tested.
    Just take the police force performance in Little India riot as a real reference and example.

    Not sure what u r toking about…….”national sovereignty”?

    How does that come into the picture regarding Sylvia Lim’s DEFENSE of the PAPies at the International Bar Association meeting in S’pore?

    Or r u saying that we should disregard the Privy Council (& all those ENGLISH case laws) and or that Singapore’s judiciary are up to the level of the English judiciary?

    If you r trying to defend the wayang party, sorry, you hv failed. If not then what’s the point u r trying to make?

    I think people would know from what I’ve commented in different threads that I am not ignorant of what’s going on with Singapore, the PAPies and the wayang party MPs who are derilict in their duties and responsibilities as MPs………….they should have returned all the MP allowances since they stepped in Parliament.

    Bro, not taking sides but your comments are a little Harsh towards WP…yes I do agree at times the WP seems to be a mirror image of the PAP on a smaller scale and at times I wonder if WP were given rein to win in Aljuneid…bar the loss of Georgie Boy the other 2 ministers were albatrosses for the PAP and “meTHINKS” that GeorgieBoy was sacrificed as he may be a THREAT to the LeeDynasty grooming the 3rd ONE by none other than the JINX!!!

    Fast Forward with the stepping down of LTK which looks as if he enjoys the compliments from non-other than the bast**d and the rest followed suit with RESPECT in Parliament for Low or toeing the line with the Evil Shadow perpetually LOOMING in Parliament till the Owl took him back to where he BELONGS??? or just a wayang???… For Moa to challenge Low and eventually stepping aside for Pritam shows the wind of CHANGE may blow into WP finally leh!!!
