‘Double Jeopardy’ in charging Lim Tean?

I just saw the video by Lim Tean that the Law Society had withdrawn it’s charges today (11 May) against him on the issue of client’s monies. Why is the police so anxious to charge him tomorrow (12 May) when the law society was conducting its inquiry. Worst of all , his charges have been withdrawn by the Law Society today.

This also offends the principle of double jeopardy protected under Article 11 of the constitution. The case against Tean is now irreversibly prejudiced. The police must withdraw the charge against him. The law society’s dismissal of charges against Lim Tean today only amplifies his allegation of political persecution.

  • PAP Stooges:

    Chiong first king – First one to charge stands highest chance to score highest point.

    Chiong last king – In war, last one to charge stands highest chance to survive.

  • Suffering SG under PSP:

    One has to have serious and valid concerns which are certainly IMPORTANT for SG and ALL SGpns if we are to make progress from our stagnant years since the Noughties (2000) till now, about 20 years span during which the dominant issues of SG seems to be PAP’s focus on still welcoming more foreigners to DITCH SGpns out to trash. Eg. PAP spent 100s of Millions of dollars on foreign students

    The way PAP has made so many laws to be jokes, and jokes into laws – leaves a lot of Thinking and scratching of OUR heads why the PAP has spend 1000s and 1000s and 1000s of watts of their energy (and citizens paid for their salaries to govern SG) to fix opposition politicians, as opposition are also SUPPORTED by SGpns as can be seen in the 1000s of votes they too obtained. And this DEMAND respect from PAP as far as Nationalism and National UNITY of SG is concerned – SG DO NOT BELONG to PAP and vice versa.

    Seriously THE CRITICAL time has COME to eradicate the PAP from cementing their power and done with ‘legal corruption’ which seems to pervade freely here, UNCHECKED.
    (Lim Tean situation is latest example of abuse of power).

  • Harder Truths:

    Double Jeopardy is a US term. It does not apply to $inkieland. Here you can be arrested any number of times for the same ‘crime’ no problem.

    I am amused people in $inkieland still think we have a legal system and governance by law. We are ruled by fascists who need no excuse to arrest and imprison you for anything and everything.

    People should understand there is no protection if they say you are guilty. Like Nazi Germany or the USSR.

  • vote wisely:

    WHEN U give PAP PARTY 0ver 90% of parliament seats ,PAP GAGMT BECOME LIKE AN AUTHORITIAN ,AND DICTATOR….they now are the master ,we become their servants,slaves.
    THEY NOW DONT LISTEN TO U .
    For a democratic institution to work,u need at least 40% of parliament seats to be given to oppositions top question vigoriously the gagmt of the day and make them accountable,transparent in their doings.
    Poor hardly have justices,THE COST OF ENGAGING ALAWYER COST U SEVERAL THOUSANDS WHICH IS BEYOND THE REACH OT COMMON PEOPLE….PAP NOW IN POWER SHOW THEIR TRUE COLOURS.
    Groceries have gone up 50 to 100% in prices over the past 2 yrs…
    inflation i estimate is at least more than 20 % ….transport,electricity,water bill gone up averaging 30% over the past yr besides others.
    U CANNOT GET JUSTICE IN AN AUTHORITIAN RULE…WITH 90% OF PATRIAMENT SEATS IN THEIR FAVOUR.
    U GAVE THEM THE POWER ,NOW U HAVE TO BEAR THE CONSEQUENCES FOR YOURSELF,CHILDREN,GRANDCHILDREN…in whatever they do in policies.
    THINK HARD NEXT TIME U VOTE!!!

    Someone has mentioned in SG, the place to made jokes into laws, and laws into jokes is the SG Parliament of Multi Millionaire Politicians.

    The jokes I remembered, esp a recent one by an ex Parliamentarian, using a scare row image to stand it up as Hari Raya greeting to SG Malays/Muslims. And still claimed tt the intention is to promote racial harmony.

    One day, perhaps not uncommon, another race rep,
    may use the image of a DOUBLE HEADED SNAKE, COBRA to wish SG Chinese Gong Xi Fa Cai which also can be aimed as to promote racial resilience. This could be interesting, then.

  • SINGAROAR:

    Don’t think it is double jeopardy; as the Law Society is a separate regulatory board from the Police. However do we think that the Police and the judiciary branch of the State are acting in the interests of the taxpayers or in the interest of the Ruling Party? The following cases say it all:

    1. Case against Li ShengWu :Fine $15,000 for the use of the word “plaint”. What was the total cost of legal proceedings to the Public ?

    2. Case against Lee Suet Fern : Suspended 15 months for taking instructions of her father in law. This is a family matter but the AG spent numerous hours working to find her guilty. Once again, what is the cost to the Public ?

    Perhaps, it is time for us to take our appeals to the PRIVY COUNCIL. Legislators should begin work on this.
