And by the way, forgot to mention this in my earlier post, the verdict is
already out sometime back while Dr. Chee is still here. The judge will just
have to go along and perform the wayang show when Dr. Chee comes back and
attend his court session he will find out that he is bankrupt again and if
he can't pay the fines and charges he will have to be imprisoned again.

Actually, what is the problem with this Dr. Chee, all he has to do is lick
the arse of his opponent and be a good sportsmanship and accept that he had
lost. He could do anything he wants, fly anywhere in the world, these so
called Singaporeans are useless, why does he even want to waste his future
and his family's future away by defending or flighting for more freedom for
these so called Singaporean. I just don't understand, why he is wasting so
much time on useless people that doesn't even vote for him in the end, even
the chinese foreigners here are calling these people stupid, do you think it
is worthwhile to fight for these stupid people Dr. Chee? unless you're also
another stupid idiot Singaporean I guess.

This is how it should work here I agree with Judge Toh. The judge is just
carrying out orders, outwardly it seem like the judge fault, but behind the
scene the judge is just another puppet following orders, and by now you all
should know who and where the orders are coming from, no need to point
fingers you can guess on your own.
