Appeal for Support

closing the appeal

Contributions as of 28 OCT 2018, 10PM
TOTAL AMOUNT: $1,076,170

We are facing two civil law suits in the High Court. One suit is being brought by Aljunied-Hougang Town Council (AHTC), directed by an Independent Panel (Philip Jeyaretnam S.C., N. Sreenivasan S.C. and Ong Pang Thye) appointed under the Town Councils Act. The other suit is brought by Pasir Ris-Punggol Town Council (PRPTC).

Both suits allege that we and two other town councillors failed in our duties managing AHTC, and are liable to pay monies to AHTC and PRPTC. The total sum claimed against us is potentially more than $30 million, even though we are not accused of receiving any of these monies personally.

The claims against us are unfounded. We have acted in good faith, and did what we believed to be in the best interests of our residents and the Town Council. We have mounted rigorous defences in the two suits, and engaged a legal team from M/s Tan Rajah & Cheah.

We will fight the claims vigorously. If we lose the suits and are adjudged to pay large sums of money, and are unable to pay, we would face bankruptcy.

Since the suits commenced, the three of us have funded the legal expenses, using our personal savings and contributions from friends. We have not used any funds from the Workers’ Party. The total we have paid to our own lawyers to date is close to $600,000, covering the work done before the trial. The costs incurred so far have depleted our personal resources.

We need financial resources to fight the legal battle and to deal with the prospect of being made a bankrupt.

We now appeal to the public for financial support.

Thank you for your support. Every contribution, large and small, counts.

    It’s not a surprise if pap will make you guys bankrupt. Sorry, we ourselves are broke to help you. They make us broke too. They will suppress whoever they are scared of by any means. They had a done to those before you successfully. BUT your loss does not mean our loss. We will win this very next election as revenge. The power is in our hands, not theirs.

    If you win or the judge hearing the case, I hope Oppies supporters will contribut more $$$ to help WP to counter sue the ‘trouble makers.
    I’m sick and tired of the ‘strong arm’ tactics practise by them.
    An example is SC fees. from a monthly S$45 increasing it to S$55. As I’m a kindergarten dropped ou, the % increased I’m unable to figure out.

    Very soon I need to tak my grandmother’s rusty spitoon to the pawnshop to borrow some S$$$ to pay for the monthly fee.

    With love n forgiveness

    Give and
    You will receive.
    Nothing in the world
    Is greater than love.
