M Ravi made the AGC lose face?M Ravi made the AGC lose face? A man who ended up on death row after the AGC appealed his initial acquittal is once again acquitted from the capital charge by the Court of Appeal, who reviewed the case because it cleared the high legal threshold of there likely being a miscarriage of justice. (Which, as it turned out, there was.) After the decision,...

The Mystery Surrounding Lim Tean's ArrestThe Mystery Surrounding Lim Tean's Arrest Many MSM readers had arrived at conclusion that Lim Tean refused to go for interview and got arrested. Some even went further to say Lim Tean is guilty of offenses and got arrested. Some even went further to say Lim Tean is a probably psychopath stalking his own office employee. So I decided to watch his videos and explanations...

The 10M Question Gone Awol!The 10M Question Gone Awol! Many people asked about if Mdm is paid $100M, they were served POFMA. So is it $99M or $89M or $99.9M or 8.9M? During the GE, the 10M population statistics was raised by many politicians and they were condemned for falsehoods and even insulted on. So now the GE is over, as usual, this 10M question has gone very quiet. No...

When the system makes a mistakeWhen the system makes a mistake I refer to these 3 articles on ST, Today and ST. After a case where a molester was sentenced to probation, it drew public anger. However, the most important thing to Minister Shanmugam is this: Don't cast aspersion on the judge! In the most recent case where a maid is acquited after being sentenced to jail prior,...

Public prosecutors in SingaporePublic prosecutors in Singapore I’ve heard folks at the AGC take pride in the fact that apparently unlike in other jurisdictions, public prosecutors in Singapore are NOT directed to view getting a conviction + the highest penalty for every defendant before the courts as the goal/a win, but to seek a just verdict and sentence based on a fair trial and...
