Worse than the bloody Malaysians these Singapore fuckers.

US blogger freed on bail

Singaporean-born US lawyer and blogger Golapan Nair was released on 2,400 euros bail yesterday after judges decided he did not have to remain in detention while investigations continue. Nair is due to appear in court again on 12 June.

Aged 58, he has been charged under the Sedition Act for posting blog entries criticising the supreme court’s handling of a defamation suit brought against the leader of the Singapore Democratic party, Chee Soon Juan, and his sister, Siok Chin, who have been sentenced to 12 and 10 days in prison respectively.

But wait there's more ....

Government urged to lift ban on film about journalist imprisoned for 17 years

Reporters Without Borders today called on the Singaporean government to reverse its decision to ban director Martyn See’s documentary “Zahari’s 17 years,” about former journalist and dissident Said Zahari’s 17 years in detention for defending press freedom in Singapore.

“Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s government has used an archaic film law to impose another authoritarian measure violating press freedom,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The ban on See’s film must be lifted. This act of censorship is all the more inappropriate and ridiculous as his films are available on websites such as YouTube and GoogleVideo. We call for the liberalisation of the censorship and internal security laws that deprive Singaporeans of an environment favourable to free speech.”

Since 12 April, anyone suspected of possessing or disseminating a copy of “Zahari’s 17 years” can be sentenced to two yeas in prison and a heavy fine. See was forced to surrender all of his own copies of the documentary to the ministry of information, communication and arts on 11 April.

The film consists of a 49-minute interview with Said, the former editor of the newspaper Utusan Melayu, about the reasons he and several colleagues were arrested under a draconian internal security law in 1963, when the government was headed by the current prime minister’s father. Two years before his arrest, Said led a strike by the staff of Utusan Melayu in protest against the government’s takeover of the newspaper.

The documentary can be viewed at http://singabloodypore.rsfblog.org/archive/2007/04/12/singapore-zahari-s-17-years.html

This article is just scrapping the surface Piss, the wife and I oppose the Lee Regime and when we found out how deep the cancerous grows there we decided not to immigrate in to that repressive society a few years ago. If you really oppose it so strongly, refuse to go there, refuse to spend one penny in the repressive society. We refuse for the long term day to day living under that kind of regime but we do go there for short term trips for work, health and get aways.

Yes I can't find it either. Nor any photos. But maybe it's better that way.

My wife said two minutes, however. Something we often disagree about.

Five-minute-long orgasm? Not bad I'd say.

I say he will be found guilty, with a huge fine and some mandantory jail time, any takers on the bet?

US blogger to be tried for insulting Singapore judges

A US national said Tuesday he will be tried in Singapore next month for allegedly insulting two judges who had presided over cases involving an opposition leader.

Gopalan Nair, a former Singaporean lawyer who is now a US citizen, told AFP he has not yet hired a lawyer to represent him in the trial from September 8-19.

"At this moment, I am representing myself," he said.

Nair faces two charges of insulting judges on his blog. Each charge carries a jail term of up to one year, a 5,000 Singapore dollar fine (3,676 US) or both.

In the first charge, he is accused of insulting Justice Belinda Ang, who presided over a defamation case where Singapore's founding father Lee Kuan Yew and his son Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong testified against the leader of the opposition Singapore Democratic Party (SDP).

Nair, 58, alleged that Ang was "prostituting herself during the entire proceedings by being nothing more than an employee of Mr Lee Kuan Yew and his son and carrying out their orders," a court document said.

In the second charge, Nair is alleged to have sent an e-mail to Supreme Court Justice Lai Siu Chiu in 2006 saying he has "no shame" and that judges "are selling their souls and their conscience for money," according to a court document.

Nair allegedly sent the e-mail on the day Lai sentenced SDP secretary general Chee Soon Juan to a one-day jail term and fined him for contempt of court.

Nair said he is currently free on bail of 5,000 dollars.
