Singaporean perturbed by unjust execution of Malaysian on Vesak Day

Dear Gilbert,

I am very disturbed to learn of the merciless execution by our government, of a Malaysian yesterday despite legal objections doing so and after last minute attempts to scrutinize various doubtful points in the case was flatly dismissed without even obtaining their due processes.

What is also particularly abominable not to mention alarming, is the fact the Cabinet broke from accepted traditional norms of our founding fathers for hanging a prisoner only before dawn on Friday mornings and not forgetting that today is Vesak, the day of mercy! I wonder if this is the idea most Buddhists had when they cast their votes for the PAP last year.

The prosecution and senior civil servants like Bidadri Kausikan who demonstrate that the public service is partisan have also come out in full force to denounce the noble actions of the 2 lawyers who went beyond their course of duty to save a human life. Kausikan has conveniently forgotten (or chooses to do so) that “systematic abuses” of the Court process has been “entrenched” for the elites and invoked several times in the past and present.

Whenever The Late LKY, GCT and even LHL took out high profiled defamation suits against various figures, they are almost always granted whatever they wished for on a summary trial basis.

The conscience of the state judges is not even “tinted” by the fact a young blogger who just started out in the workforce is about to be bankrupted by our millionaire Prime Minister with their pronouncement!

What about the countless foreign capitalist insurance agencies who profited immensely from our market while offering “peanuts” in compensation when they infringed on or caused Singaporeans to suffer damages to their health and property? These huge conglomerates utilize large resources to delay Court proceedings through foreign lawyers who practise in our shores such as the “United Legal Alliance” among others.

Unable to take the financial pressure sometimes for years coupled with lack of options at law after not qualifying for the non-existent “Legal Aid”, these poor Singaporeans often cave into the demands of the heartless machinery.

Kausikan should look not just at the log in his own eye when casting stones on others but also the “perfect example” of an abuse of Court process in the case the ruling party’s MP, Murali Pillai is currently pursuing!

May all beings be well and happy.

    Please find out more about the background of the case first. There was no last minute scrutiny of doubtful points. In fact there was no points presented. It was deemed as a way to delay the execution and it was not the first time they had done it for this case

    To declare, I voted for Dr Chee S.J in the last election. But I felt there is nothing wrong to execute a proven-guilty death roll convict without-further-ado on Vesak Day. If he deserves the sentence, then let him not live another day.

    Those daft 70% asked for it. If the opposition won, all these murderers will be set free. We will have lots of murders.
