Singapore Court’s sentencing of Mr. Alan Shadrake is excessive

Singaporeans For Democracy notes that it is the arrest and subsequent prosecution of Mr. Shadrake by Singapore authorities that drew international attention to the contents of the book – “Once a Jolly Hangman – Singapore Justice in the Dock”.

Singaporeans For Democracy further calls on the Singapore Police Force to clarify and make public the progress of investigations into Mr. Shadrake’s criminal defamation charge and calls for the immediate return of his passport.

Singaporeans For Democracy calls on members of the United Nations to take note of the Alan Shadrake case and hold the Singapore Government accountable during the Universal Periodic Review process later in 2011.

Shame on you Singapore, the Court that passed the sentence is the laughing stock of the free world. What a joke!!! The man wrote a book for Christ sake. Cope it sweet and take the criticism. What’s happened to freedom of speech…it is the year 2010, not when LKY came into power, and Singapore has moved on and so has the rest of the world. Quentin Loh should have been a comedian not a High Court judge. I suppose he has got a job for life if he shows a bias towards the government, just like all the other judges. It cannot get anymore farcical can it? One might say, you never know with Singapore. Fight the good fight SFD and be proud of your organisation.
