Update on Lim Tean’s arrest (2nd Oct)

Lim Tean was arrested at his office Friday morning.

Update : IO Desmond from CAD just called me to inform me that bail has been offered to Lim Tean and he will be released shortly upon processing of the bail. His bailor is Leong Sze Hian whom Tean Lim is defending next week in the defamation suit by the Prime Minister.

3 police officers from the Commercial Affairs Department just barged into the office today  (2nd Oct) and arrested Lim Tean whilst he was preparing his case with Leong Sze Hian in his room for next Tuesday’s defamation trial to cross examine the Prime Minister.

Lim Tean protested when they placed the handcuff on him that his arrest is politically motivated. I have been instructed by Lim Tean to act as his Defence Counsel. Lim requested that I issue this statement on behalf of him as his counsel. In fact the subject matter in relation to the investigation is before the civil court and I have written to the police to that effect to respect the due process. Therefore this arrest is unlawful.

    I really wonder whether the police CAD has also confiscated all of Lim Tean office computer,handphone for investigation into the misappripriation of client money and stalking of a woman employee case ? I really don’t think CAD police dare to take his computers and handphone for investigation for Lim Tean is a big size fellow.Tell me if I am incorrect .

  • You damn funny. You think Lim dare hammer the police meh?

    CAD Desmond already very give face liao loe, if he wants to, can take mobile phones, laptops and desktop, why cannot? lol

    IMHO, I think liz time Lim actually asked to be arrested. As a lawyer, he should know very well that when police ask you nicely to drink coffee at Cantonment Complex, they weren’t actually asking. You MUST GO and if really cannot make it, either a sibei tokong reason or make alternative arrangement lor. Lim can actually request that the interview be conducted in his office wat, I am sure with good reasoning, IO Donald would agree also wat. Statement anywhere can take one, no need at Cantonment one.

    Police IO also human being wat, as long as they are being reasonable, why pissed them off and make their job harder. If Lim really did not do it, go there and say so lor, must go through the formalities mah. My understanding is that the supposedly CBT case is actually before teh court, so hor, maybe may prejudice the case if gib statement to police now, then officially say so and explain to IO Donald lor, and if IO lon want to listen, then can reflect to AGC or Court one wat. So many laweyers in the office, sure someone must know the proper procedures and channels one wat.

    BTW, for liz case to claim political persecution or say the party attempt to kajiao Lim so he cannot fight for Leong is a bit of over-stretch lar. SDP and WP so long standing and bigger party they also no put inside eye, you think one small PV they worry meh? Also hor, Lim not exactly a bigshot QC that meet case win case one, you think plaintiff worry meh?

    Must remember wor, liz is whose’s courts, Leong can engage all the QCs from England to fight for him also chances of winning practically zero one, with all the QCs flying home crying to their mama.

    Of course without access to the finer details, I say only what I see on surface, Lim not stupid. I think he got it all thought out liao.

    My 1.5 cents lor.

  • Keep your 2 cents:

    @TRE Techie;

    Keep your 2 cents lah.

    Because this time in court will X-examine the LONG so maybe its a tactic to smear Lim’s work, reputation and credibility before coming Tuesday.

    Also before this happened, his arrest was already known/spreading in his place of work that he will be charged one two. I think this is to fuse him up and further discredit him.

    Lim’s counsel already responded to the Police with valid reasons. IMO they should give face to Lim instead since Lim’s counsel had written in with the valid reasons. Not that Lim totally ignore them.

    Does not mean that you hide behind the veil of “TRE” that we should avoid speaking against you or for people to Shakha you with your shallow view of the matter.

    The writer hit the issue. If the courts have not found LT guilty yet, why is he placed on arrest ? Looks like the police is waiting to be sued or humiliated in public for stooping this low. Last we saw were some ads that police stands up for vulnerable and now we know that’s rubbish fed to idiots.

  • Boh Kia See:

    It seems to me that this demonstrates the degree of control the PAP has over every institution of State. The timing is exquisite.

    The PAP bullying tactics continues as before without change which also indicates the inability of the PAP to want to change.

    However, individually, they are not greedy. They share their victims. Dr Thum–that is for Sham to chew and spit out. Lim Tean and Uncle Leong is for the Clown PM to chew and spit out. As PM he is allowed to have two victims against Sham’s one.

    So still want to vote the PAP? You could be next

  • oxygen:

    LT WAS HANDCUFFED in the picture. What if the allegations turned up another Parti Liyani’s ghost of fiction?

    A false imprisonment case ahead and instead of allowing due process (already in process) claim thereafter?

    That is to say Ravi is right of “unlawful” arrest?

    CAD could have taken him in without the handcuff since LT is not resisting or showing inclination of violently resisting. LT would be “under REMINDED obligation” and warning to attend a forward meeting at CAD after this discourse without resorting to the handcuffing.

    I am quite sure, law enforcement can’t simply handcuff someone on mere suspicion or someone’s complaint of alleged wrongdoing on lodged complaint in Australia or Canada.

    VERY Well said…. Some oppie brain is so poisoned by Ang Mo Tua Kee freedom and human rights that they think freedom and human rights mean no responsibility and no accountability….

    I told the truth and opposition supporters cannot handle the truth.

    Let me tell you more truth… especially those pro-democracy nuts like Oxygen.

    1. Many pro-democracy nuts attack my great PAP patriotic education (PAP Kindergarten) as brainwashing kids when they are young.
    But… hey your Ang Mo Tua Kee Trump now also copy from our great PAP with their own patriotic education called 1776 commission.

    Hard Truth direct from the horse mouth Trump.
    Facts : I will soon sign an executive order to promote patriotic education through the 1776 commission

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dtng5Y-mmok

    2. Many pro-democracy nuts here also support stupid Hong Kong black shirt rioters. I had been calling black shirts protestors as rioters but many pro-democracy nuts here like Oxygen say they are protestors.

    Pelosi said: “We support peaceful demonstrations, we participate in them, they are part of the essence of our democracy. That does not include looting, starting fires or rioting. They should be prosecuted, that is lawlessness.”

    We have the RIGHT to KNOW why??? and should the reason is stoopid you have the RIGHT to answer through Letter or Legal Rep or am I WRONG???

    and why cuff him in the presence of his client if NOT to scare the shit out of tweeting birds…Never fails the f….g Dynasty must DIE in order for the people to LIVE…the EVIL being the reverse of LIVE is beyond Redemption even when calling for Jesus in their deathbed…God will turn His face in the FACE of such Extreme Evil!!!

    “… sure someone must know the proper procedures and channels one wat.”

    Compare this case with the Indonesian maid, Parti Liyani’s case. It was not the procedures, it was “look at the owner first before you hit his puppy”.

    Did the police put up so much efforts investigating Parti Liyani’s case compare those of the opposition’s?

    Crooks join PAP for Police protection, just remember that!!

    Oi, i think you better watch Lim Tean’s live video to hear his side of the story first before making such stupid assertions. Or is it because you are still in hospital in China where Facebook is blocked? Lim Tean doesn’t need you to worry for him. You worry about yourself first before you end like Heng Swee Keat. The difference is that when Heng kena stroke, he still had ministers who are doctors to resusticate him. You may not be so lucky.

  • fear = GUILT:

    Fear leads to LT‘s arrest. illegal to arrest a counsel when he is a defense lawyer for a case to be heard in a couple of days’ time. This is blatant mockery of the judiciary n the Laws of the Land. This is Contempt of judiciary n Courts n Constitution in the ultimate tentative to Treason according to Harvard Constitution Law academic. it seems that Some High Court Judges have openly revealed their brownosing depravity Time for professionals to regain their integrity, dignity n soul in defense of the nation n the confidence of the citizenry on their contribution to your education n attainment of professional status.

    Pathetic Nation if it is overrun by brownosers of political scums! it is not the lowly educated should be ashamed of being con to support the scums but the well educated professionals stooping to brownose! As a local academic said to his students, not many as most r brownosers though they r mostly aliens who has no interest in the health of the nations except $$$$$ coming with brownosing n scncs, said: it is an honour to resign n stand tall while getting med than to stay on brownnosing despicably. PSTLBs Retribution is coming fast from the dead to the living!

    Yah, more like LHL cannot handle the truth that he will be cross-examined by Lim Tean in open court, and another truth is that he may lose the court case like Liew Mun Leong, so he has to think of a way to fix Lim Tean who is defending the person accused of defaming him. That’s the real truth LHL cannot handle.

  • INSIDE 200m is not within 200m:

    if the accused were pap goh cock tong, pap jiak liao bee tony tan, pap clown, sure as sunset nothing will happen one.

    in fact, if the accused were clearly in the wrong, pap agc will come out with a tock kong INSIDE 200m is not within 200m reason to free the true as hell guilty pap goh cock tong, pap jiak liao bee tony tan, pap clown.

    one pap law. two pap interpretations.

    that is why when freed maid, accused by pap liew mun leong of theft, and exonerated by judge, is going after the two pap prosecutors who caused her to be fixed with a 2 years 2 months jail sentence, out comes pap dy agc to throw spanner in the process. everyone in 39% camp knows the final reason provided by pap dy agc for their own 2 prosecutors shall be, there is nothing wrong case closed.

    we have never voted pap. we never will. because pap is a clan of lying power abusing S$m grubbing liars.
