Li ShengWu on the court’s judgement against him

Apparently the court has rendered judgement on my case today, and fined me $15,000 for a comment made to my friends on Facebook. I disagree with the judgement, and worry that it will reinforce the PAP’s tendency to suppress ordinary political speech. In response to three words in a private Facebook post, the government has wasted three years of civil servants’ time.

In a kind of cruel irony, the AGC has spent long hours lecturing me about my grandfather’s values. The AGC is supposed to be an apolitical agency, even though the current attorney general was my uncle’s personal lawyer.

As I was arranging my bookshelf the other day, I came across a gift from my childhood. Those were better times, before my uncle bullied his siblings and tore the family apart.

    “The AGC is supposed to be an apolitical agency”

    It is not because of Mat 4:7 KJV Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt NOT tempt the Lord thy God(the one the people had anointed in the House of power or authority).

    This is true for every nation.

    A strong man with too much influence over his ministers/ministry or choice of ministers under him.

    Still your uncle? A sincere uncle would never dream of sueing his nephew.

    Don’t be too distressed. Just don’t accept the verdict.

    One day you can come back. But first get your father to stand for election to effect reforms.

    Respect must be earned not forced down our throats.

    Manchester City was once derided by Manchester United. But it has worked hard to be one of the TOP teams in EPL thereby earning the respect of MU.

    All office holders must be reminded they made a pledge to uphold the Constitution and integrity of their office which means they don’t work for the government of the day.

  • So well said, agree:

    Tracey Ching:
    Sins of the grandfather Harry came back to roost. More is to come. The arrival of the albino was the beginning of the signal. But greed and arrogance blind the family.

    Yes, the sins of Lee Kuan Yew who abused power to put fellow humans in jail for long long under false pretext has come back to roost.

    We are Chinese. We refuse to continue to false Chinese narrative about the end justifying the means.

    What are we saying?

    Let us explain. In our Chinese culture, we have a tendency to worship S$m. The more the S$m, the more the worship.

    In any Chinese family with 2 sons, if one son is a rascal but making S$m via temasick or pap PA, everyone in the village says this is a good son because he is making a lot of S$m. BUT the other son, although just a security guard making less than minimum wage but a truly wonderful son who cares for parents and everyone around him, nobody talks good of this security guard because he isn’t making S$m like his sibling. Nobody would even acknowledge he is more than able, abler, than his S$m brother.

    So is Lee Kuan Yew. Many make a lot of hay out of the many tall building in Singapore as being due to this Lee Kuan Yew. BUT many has chosen not to see how this same Lee Kuan Yew did it.

    Truth is, this Lee Kuan Yew in his merciless desire for power abused all manner of laws and regulations to succeed. Which any maniac could have achieved the same.

    Long story short. As all Chinese sayings go, look at the outcome of Lee Kuan Yew’s life. See how rotten he is, he gave the world his pap clown prints who abused power over even Dr Lee Wei Ling his sister and Mr Lee Hsien Yang his brother.

    In the words of his nephew Mr Li Sheng Wu, this Lee Kuan Yew pap clown prints bullied his siblings Dr Lee Wei Ling and Mr Lee Hsien Yang and destroyed the Lee Kuan Yew family apart.

    Heaven has eyes. Clap clap clap.

    As I was arranging my bookshelf the other day, I came across a gift from my childhood. Those were better times, before my uncle bullied his siblings and tore the family apart.

    The mistake almost every sinkie commenter, like u, is that sinkies equate LKY with the evils of the emperor without clothes, even as the evil of LKY must be condemned.

    The emperor without clothes wreaks more disasters than his father who at least had certain fundamental human values despite his evils. For eg, LKY allowed his wife's law firm from handling all HDB legal work even as I believe the wife's law firm charged the same commercial rate as other law firms would have done so.

    By contrast, there has never been ANY justification for the emperor without clothes wife from drawing the rumored humongous pay package for being the CEO of Temasek Holdings, whose total remuneration remains a state secret……which is utterly abominable.

    At least during LKY's time, and despite his evil deeds, there was an increased in sinkies' income and capital gains, whereas the emperor without clothes has driven SGP to become more of SINKaPOOR.

    Sinkies can continue to be in denial…………..and then pay the price for their stupidity thinking that the wayang party can be their saviour when in fact the wayang party has declared themselves as "CO-DRIVERS" of the emperor without clothes regime.

    “In a kind of cruel irony, the AGC has spent long hours lecturing me about my grandfather’s values.”

    Sorry, I don’t think there is any irony, cruel as that might have been.

    From my experience with being “FIXED”, the Attorney-General’s Chambers is part of the bankrupt system………. as has been shown in Ms Raeesah Khan’s case where the AGC had declared that Ms Khan’s earlier posting had disclosed an offence, but the Police is reported to be investigating the person/s who made the Police Reports against Ms Khan.

  • Great Asia:

    Your uncle is a shallow and self serving monkey.

    灭六国者,六国也,非秦也。族秦者,秦也,非天下也。

    Your grandpapa gave him a clean slate after GE2011. He did change for a few years after that, but was back to his deceitful self after GE2015.

    Your banana uncle has planned to build a grand temple for grandpapa and other founding leaders. The reason for having this temple is to allow Singaporeans to understand Singapore’s history and also to become honourable persons like those founding leaders. But, ironically, your uncle has learned nothing from the first generation leaders.

    Your uncle is as self serving and shallow as Trump, Pompeo, Navarro, Bolton, Bannon, Pelosi, Trudeau, Boris, Morrison and the like.

    “Moment of truth” for Li ShengWu. Will he (be “practical”) and pay the $15k fine or will he stand on his principles and refuse to pay? The fine was likely made deliberately “small” because LHL wants to settle the issue without losing face.

  • Who Master of Civil Servants?:

    PM Leeds relative ShengWu said AGC should be apolitical. I agree.
    But what is the truth?

    I ask because i checked that , based on UK system, CIVIL SERVANTS are employees of the crown which is the ruling party Ministers , if I interpreted correctly.

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Civil_Service_(United_Kingdom)

    So, in UK are civil servants servants of the People or the Ministers?

    Then there are the PUBLIC SERVANTS.
    Those are supposed to serve who?

    Ideally, I would like a law be passed making it illegal for Civil and Public servants to be Partisan especially towards Ruling party.

    This is a way to enforce Impartiality.

    This does not mean there is any impartiality that I can prove right now.

  • Lee vs Chiang 2:

    Singaporeans to pull the nation back to square one of its democracy beginning unlike Chiang Kaisek was given a chance to reprieve via his family, Chiang Jinkuo to terminate nepotism n its evil from the island. Unfortunately n ironically it took Chun Chan to warn of accountability of childrem to parents mysteriously when singapore unsuccumbable intellevtual n awared citizens demand pap accountability n being supposedly a scholar n an Oxbridge grad, his response seems he has been wagged by the uncleaned Ox tail n butts rather than riding the Ox over the bridge. Hindsight alerts unsccumable Singaporeans than his babble is part of divine warning to the nation n to provide an opportunity as Ching Jinkuo had n used It for family salvation. Instead of having the fighting spirit of his grand which will see him coming back n claim his rights n then return it to Singaporeans n go back to his academic santorium, he chose the defeatist course n forego the divide charity.

    The Buddhists version is Chiang n Lee have different destiny. Chiang could remain neutral but lee nepotism stinks thru the ages! So Sengwu, read more Chinese be mango rather than banana which changes color when rot but not mango, always yellow regardless of rotting stage!

    @ Who Master of Civil Servants?:

    IN AUSTRALIA, IT IS THE SAME – public sector employees paid out of tax-payer funding ARE ALL SERVANTS OF THE CROWN in fact, functional acts and in law.

    A sitting New South Wales Minister of Police was apprehended AND CHARGED OF OFFENCE for drunkard driving after failing his breatherlyser test by who?

    A lowest ranking police constable in the NSW Police force on patrol duty who stopped the Minister on the highway and ordered him out of his car.

    I believe that was the end of the road of that Minister’s political career.

    Another EXAMPLE would include this Parliamentary Secretary of the Police Minister FORCED OUT OF OFFICE – Tony Stewart.

    ABC News network : ….. Stewart was appointed a Parliamentary Secretary following the 1999 election, and was Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Police in 2006 when a drink driving conviction saw him forced to stand aside from the position……

    https://www.abc.net.au/elections/nsw/2011/guide/departingmps.htm

    WHEN POLITICIANS HOLD POSITION OF POWER IN PUBLIC OFFICE, they are to set good examples, not disgraceful acts and got caught by lowly-ranking public service employees who are SERVANTS OF THE CROWN.

  • Soccerbetting2:

    Reported on coconuts.co :Quote – “The nephew of Singapore’s prime minister announced today that he will pay the S$15,000 fine (US$11,000) for scandalizing the judiciary three years ago – but won’t admit guilt.

    Li Shengwu wrote online that he had decided to pay the fine to buy “some peace and quiet” but disagreed that what he said in the online post, which was only visible to his friends, was illegal. His announcement came two weeks after he was convicted of contempt of court. He would have to spend a week in jail if he chose not to pay the fine.

    “I do not admit guilt. I have never denied writing what I wrote, to my friends in a private Facebook post. I disagree that my words were illegal. Moreover, civilized countries should not fine or jail their citizens for private comments on the court system,” the Harvard University associate economic professor said.

    Li, who is the son of Lee Hsien Yang, was last month fined for contempt of court over the 2017 Facebook post, which stated that Singapore’s government was “very litigious” and has a “pliant court system.” He later amended the post to remove the phrase “pliant court system” in a bid to “avoid misunderstanding,” he said.

    The Attorney-General’s Chambers filed legal proceedings against him after he refused to delete the post. Li said in January that he stopped participating in the proceedings, citing issues with his defense.

    “Back in January, I decided that I would not dignify the government’s prosecution by continuing to respond. Even without my participation, it took six more months to arrive at a verdict, long enough for the government to mishandle a pandemic and hold an election,” Li said today.

    Singaporeans went to the polls July 10…”Unquote.

    Response : So who says that civilized countries should not fine or jail their citizens for private comments on the court system ? Not me. It is Li Sheng Wu. So is Singapore not a civilised country ? So if Singapore is not a civilised country, does it have an uncivilised PM, an uncivilised Minister of Law, an uncivilised Court system, an uncivilised women President ?

    Why did LSW need to amend the post to remove the phrase “pliant court system” in a bid to “avoid misunderstanding ?
