Why award $22,400 legal costs & disbursements to AGC?

The Class Action coordinated by TR Emeritus (TRE) affects more than 100,000 non-fully vaccinated S’poreans, who may have lost or are losing their jobs, as more people may be losing their “fully vaccinated” status!

In summary, the Class Action was primarily in respect of the Covid-19 discriminatory measures allowing employers to terminate non-fully vaccinated employees, among other things.

In this connection, it may be interesting to note that only 300 persons out of the population of 5.45 million, have been granted exemption from being vaccinated, on medical grounds.

The AGC had argued that the Ministry of Manpower’s (MOM) communication allowing employers to terminate non-fully vaccinated employees, was only an advisory and not a directive.

The judgement described the statistics presented by the litigants as “shaky”, even though the computations were derived from data published in the Ministry of Health’s (MOH) website.

The computations showed that the primary reason of ‘so as not to stress the healthcare system” for the Covid-19 discriminatory measures, was mathematically flawed, as the ratios (incidence rate x the no. in the population) for those in ICU and deaths (fully-vaccinated vs non-fully vaccinated) indicated to the contrary.

Public Interest

As the Class Action was a matter of ‘very significant impact’ affecting an estimated 132,000 non-fully vaccinated adults (which may be increasing by the day as many have not taken their required boosters to maintain their fully-vaccinated status) – the litigants submitted to the court that no costs should be awarded as this was a matter of great public interest since so many people were affected and also a matter of great constitutional importance.

So why award $22,400 legal costs & disbursements to AGC?

  • Not first time:

    Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen announced on Monday night that his ministry should waive the legal costs that the family of full-time national serviceman Dominique Sarron Lee has to pay, after the High Court threw out its lawsuit against the Singapore Armed Forces and its two officers.

    The court had ruled last Thursday (March 3) that Private Lee’s family had to pay costs of $22,000 to the three defendents.

  • Not second time:

    To summarise, I filed the necessary papers (the “Notice of Appeal”) on 8 August 2018 for the appeal, but my Notice of Appeal was rejected because I could not afford to furnish the $20,000 Security for Costs (security deposit) for the benefit of NUS.

    On 15 January 2019, the Court responded that the Court rejected my “OS to CA” (Originating Summons to the Court of Appeal) because I did not furnish a Security for Costs (security deposit) for the “OS to CA.” In other words, the Court told me that it will not hear me at all, unless I can afford to deposit thousands of dollars as a “security deposit.”

    No money, no talk.

  • Minister Ng made the right decision to waive fees as the family has gone through a lot, losing their son in the process. The Minister need not have to do that but he did, probably on compassionate ground.

    However for the litigants in the CA, its a different story because the LEEders had wanted the unvaxed to be taken “good care” of and have to be taught a lesson on how they should have been obedient, so they must tekan them solid solid or the MTF would look very bad.

    So don’t expect any compassion from the MTF or teh AGC, I would say.

    What about the SG National Pledge – is it a corrupted political scheme of things to treat Singaporeans as fools, to build pseudo nationalism?
