truth comment : i salute chia ti lik. singaporeans pls give him
your full support as he take on the evil pap leegime on your
behalf.

Lawyer Chia Ti Lik stood his ground today when he told a district judge that
"as a citizen of this country, I have to stand up against the law that
violates the principles of democracy and freedom".

Mr Chia made the defiant statement when he was asked by Judge James Leong if
he had anything to say before sentence was passed.

Earlier, Mr Chia, one of the Tak Boleh Tahan (cannot stand) protesters, had
pleaded guilty to two charges of "illegal assembly and procession" in front
of Parliament House to mark World Consumers Day on 15 March 2008 where
nearly 30 people had gathered to protest against the escalating cost of
living.

This afternoon, Mr Chia pleaded guilty to the charges due to work
commitments.

Before he was sentenced, Mr Chia read out a statement in which he told the
judge: "I am not in defiance or disrespectful to the court. But because of
my political conviction I can't say this will be the only offence."

Hearing this, Deputy Public Prosecutor Mr Isaac Tan noted that Mr Chia had
shown "no remorse".

Agreeing, Judge Leong said: "Chia is unable to ensure the court that he will
not do it again."

The judge then fined Mr Chia, $800 for each offence, making a total of
$1,600 or ten days' jail in default. For his "unremorsefulness", the lawyer
was fined $400 more than the amount meted out to Mr Chia's co-defendents who
had siimilarly pleaded guilty also because of work commitments. The maximum
fine for each offence is $1,000.

Another accused, Ms Suraya binte Akbar, a 26-year old housewife with three
young children also pleaded guilty at the same court to the two charges and
was fined a total of $1,200 or eight days' jail in default.

Meanwhile, the trial involving thirteen other protesters continues at
Subordinate Court 5 tomorrow at 9.30 in the morning.

I do not agree.

All of their acts in protesting and now pleading guilty to the charge
is a carefully synchronised play to arouse public sentiment to make
PAP look bad, and to buy sympathy vote.

With talks of the election coming up, now is the perfect time to be
martyed by the regime, and derive an identity for being the "hero"
that stands up for the people.

Do not be fooled. This man is one clever and ambitious fox. Like Dr
Chee, if they can't go mainstream, they choose alternative routes such
as such guerrilla tactics to launch their political warfare.

I am not a supporter of PAP, I agree that they have lost touch and are
being unsympathetic to the plight of the people, but pushing another
man/party forward,, which is insincere with truly helping the people,
but merely using these as tactics for political capital is not the
answer either.

I don't think the protest was for the people, it was for attention.
For media coverage. Just as the other protests for cambodia was. I do
not believe these people to be sincere.

For the protesters, Chia and Go, a mother of 2 children have been
having an affair since October 2006.
That was how Chia got started with SDP anyway.
Divorce proceedings is underway for Chia.

The protests, the on-going bombardment of PAP, the "fight" with the
courts, is what he has left to derive an identity from.
After having lost all from a single mistake he has made.

These people are not sincere with the fight, and are pretty messed up
in the personal lives to be responsible individuals to run/govern a
nation.

Who cares whether an idiot agree or disagree !

You talk cock... you are a brainless idiot.

The law that prevent people from demonstrating against
the rising cost of food and other essential (for the poor
Singaporeans) ...is UTTERLY wrong.
The poor Singaporeans who cannot pay the high prices of
essentials,... who suffer hunger in private...have a right to
demonstrate....to voice their pains and sufferings in public.

The law is evil, the law is wrong to gag them. NO one, no
law...certain no elected leaders should force the people to
suffer in private ...in silence.

When no one seem to care, when the government allow
the price of food and essential to rise without control...
the poor have no recourse...

Chia is doing the right thing... to demonstrate,... to tell
the government ....that the law need to be amended...
to allow poor Singaporeans to voice their pain and
suffering...caused by high prices.

For this, I applaud Chia. He is doing a great service
to the millions of poor Singaporeans.

U r wrong. These people make big sacrifices for the
sake of Singaporeans. I don't see how they are benefitting
personally.

They are anytime more sincere than the pap people
and those who lick their arses and suck their cocks.

Is Chia a hero ?
I don't see him as a superman, a male mother
Teresa, or a Md Gandhi.

What has he done?
He was arrested for street demo, and has been
fined. I don't think this can be considered as a
heroic deed.

However, I respect him, for standing up to his belief...
that Singaporeans have the right to demonstrate....against
rising prices in Singapore and is prepared to be jailed
for it...
He punishment was unjust...the law in this instance was
unjust. His action (the demo) has clearly demonstrated to
us that some unjust laws in Singapore should be changed.
An honest man has been unjustly punished by our law.

If he stood in my constituency, I would certainly vote for
him.... to change the unjust laws in Singapore.
