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.

Contributions can be made in the following ways:

• PayNow to +65 9852 5901 (Sylvia’s public line)
• Internet fund transfer to UOB account no. 396 309 388 6
• Cheque made payable to any one of us:
Lim Swee Lian Sylvia
Low Thia Khiang
Pritam Singh

    It has been their (MIW) ways of silencing credible opposition by bankrupting them. I will send my contribution to the bank account when I return to Singapore this weekend. WP have my support. Keep up the good work.
    In good faith!

    I trust that justice will be done.


  5. James Tan says:

    How will I know the funds will be used for the payment of the legal cost? In good faith like the town council fund?


  6. Parsh Singh says:

    Good luck Sylvia and guys – Democracy is somewhat alive because of You. You have sacrificed yourselves so that people like us can have the comfort zone. Fight the battle – Victory will be Yours.
    God Bless the true blue Singapore.


  7. Loh says:

    Who ever is orchestrating this civil case, is gonna drag this trial to next year & WP can’t even focus on GE2019, right?
    When the 3 WP leaders get bankrupted, they can’t even contest elections, right?
    So, what happens next?
    PAP take back Aljunied GRC & possibly even Hougang?
    PAP gets total domination of Parliament?
    Is this what Singaporeans want?


  8. J says:

    Hi, your blog is pretty hard to find, you should set up a gofundme page and publicise it on your facebook accounts. Gofundme isnmore transparent as well. Good Luck!


  9. Allen says:

    For the electronic transfer to your UOB account, what is the payee’s name?


  10. William says:

    Any others means to contribute beside those stated above.


  11. WK Lim says:

    Definitely I will help as Singapore need a strong opposition regardless whether they will form the next government. A strong opposition will alway become a police officer to check on the government. Not everything the current government did alway benefits the Singaporean.

    However I still very confuse why such legal cases happened!!!! If I’m not wrong during the Lehman Brothers crisis, some town council also make a huge losses. Than why no legal action was taken against the people that approved the investment. All this approval should be approved by the so call MP, right?


  12. Wilson Lee says:

    I just donate $20 through paynow. Can’t help much, but hope this little thought help.


  13. Chin Kok Khiong says:

    I am frustrated to see what our current garmen has been doing to their oppositions and us.
    I am thankful to have fellow citizens like you guys to speak up on our behalf at the expense of your own finances and legal liabilities.
    I am happy that i can play a small part in contributing to your legal battle against them be it a positive or negative outcome.
    I wish and hope you and your team will emerge victorious and lead us to a better future not only for us but also the many generations to come.


  21. Ruby says:

  29. Ong Siew Hock. Ivan says:

    I will be meeting Ms Sylvia Lim in 29 Oct 2018

    I will be giving my $100/- support for WP’s fight against the tyrannies of the ruling party
    I would expect a receipt for mine small contribution to your cause.

    As I am retired, I do not have an income.

  31. Anna Low says:

    Would contribute, but I must say WP’s performance in Parliament very disappointing, only make some noise and half way let PAP off so lightly.
    Maybe you people are bed fellows with PAP.
    Of all the members, I only like Slyvia, only reason to donate. I dislike Low the most, also dislike Pritam. Like Slyvia’s floating balloon argument with that female PAP Minister, shutting up the latter.
    Next GE, I would ditch WP if there is another Opposition Party competing. I dun want status quo to continue with WP in Parliament.
    Do not reply to this email. Full Stop here.


  32. Patrick Lim says:

    done with small donation, keep it up with the good job.


  33. Richard says:

    Even though I am a PMET struggling for past 5 years to find a decent job with very little income, my small contribution made through PayNow is the believe and trust that all of you can help to make the lives of true blue Singaporeans better. The fight must carry on for our future and our children… Jia You 加油!


  34. Joe lee says:

    Donated. Thank you WP for doing all this for all singaporean. Surpport WP all the way….. keep it up! Wp never give up! Joe lee 👍👍👍


  35. Jason Lee says:

    Fight off the bullies. I have made a small contribution but most important I have put in a voice.
    Thank you for all your efforts.


  36. Andrew LIM says:

    To me, this case is a waste of public resources and has a deeper and hidden objective. I salute Low, Lim and Pritam. Keep the spirit up and continue fighting. I think WP PR machinery must go into overdrive to balance public views garnered through reading different medias. I have forwarded my cheque made payable to Mr. Low and shall mail it asap. Wanted to do a Internet Transfer but not sure if they need BOTH an account number as well as a named account. It would have been easier.
    All the very best. I hope more Singaporean are waking up to this nonsensical treatment of people.


  37. Joshua ong h.s says:
