Legal? Factual? Faulty? Who knows?

A-G vs MM's Daughter - Part 4

Wrong facts and faulty logic: [2008] 18 Sep by Walter woon for the Straits Times

For the second time the Attorney-General is back at Lee Wei Ling after "she fired a second misguided missile at the prosecution" on Sept 10. I guess this wayang ain't over till the fat lady sings. Or will it need the intervention of a great leader to say, "Kids, Stop it!" before the show is over. Meanwhile, we are learning some.

Hey, remember lung
cancer-stricken Mr Heng Wa Seng who was sentenced to 4 months jail? Plus 3 months more for not being able to pay fine. Why didn't anyone speak for him? Why didn't the "well-educated and influential" and "learned" ask for a lighter and more humane sentence or even ask not to charge him at all. From what was reported in ST, like Mr Tang of CK Tang, Mr Heng is dying too. Why the double standard? Or should we blame the judge for his lack of compassion. Or are we wrong in judging the judge. Could it be that the judge gave Mr Heng a longer stay in jail to make sure that he received better and cheaper medical treatment than if he were not incarcerated. Legal? Factual? Faulty? Who knows?

I'm most impressed that A-G wrote: "
Those who are well-educated and influential should be models for society. It would be a sad day for Singapore if such people think that they can choose which laws to obey and that it is morally and socially acceptable to lie on oath.

There are many countries where wealthy people with friends in high places can pressure the prosecutor to have charges against them dropped so that they will not have to face a judge in open court. Singapore is not one of those countries".

I wonder if there's a country where wealthy people in high places can pressure the prosecutor (or anybody else) to have charges fixed against those to face a judge in open court for serious charges like sodomy, defamation or contempt of court. Or if there's a country where people in high places can prevent others from having a pink picnic or healthy bicycle ride in the park?

I wonder.

Or can people in high places make law against guys from having fun with each other's posterior but choose not to enforce it?

Legal? Factual? Faulty?

Who's law is it anyway?

I am just as frustrated at ST for harping on the fact that the judge was merciful towards Rich Mr Tang. However the lack of mercy on the part of the judge in this cancer case is glaring. But quietly dismissed in the ST.
Sad that both cases were passed on the same day, and AG Walter was probably not on top of matters here - with one judge showing mercy in front of 50 celebrities and who's who, while the other is left high and dry, without any rich counsel to assist him.

Mr Walter woon and the whole AG department, can some MORE justice be seen to be done to this poor man?

people in high places can afford to 'sin' because, like indo former strongman whose economic crime, and ahem..hidden moral violations, to his fellowmen, has been given an international endorsement by another strongman closer home you think?
