Lawyer Ravi to issue letter of demand to Law Society

Posted by temasektimes on July 21, 2012

Prominent Human Rights lawyer said in a statement on Friday that he will be issuing a letter of demand to the Law Society of Singapore.

On 16 July, a representative from the Law Society Wong Siew Hong submitted a letter from Mr Ravi’s psychiatrist Dr Calvin Fones to the High Court alleging that he is currently ‘unfit’ to practice law, a stunning move which was rejected outright by the judge Justice Pilliai.

Mr Ravi was at High Court to argue the Hougang by-election case, prompting some to speculate that there was a ‘conspiracy’ going on behind the scenes to ‘silence’ him.

The Law Society later claimed that Mr Wong was acting in his own ‘personal capacity.’

On Tuesday, the society issued a statement on the incident, saying that the representative, Mr Wong, had acted of his own, and he did so with the best of intentions.

A highly respected lawyer in Singapore, Mr Ravi is one of the few lawyers who dare to take on the government which controls ALL institutions of the state.

    I could not find the above breaking news nor Ravi’s other suits against the desperadoes involved, in the ST, NP and Today. Can someone tell me whether any of the Chinese media carried the news?
    It speaks loud and clear which side SPH is on. Maybe even complicit?
    Be warned….when you go against the Lees, PAP and the Estab..from everywhere will come arrows of the lackeys! They are after all protecting their own interests as well as getting in the good books of their masters!

    When you take on the cross of a noble defender for HUMAN RIGHTS and DEMOCRACY in this state, you have to be prepared to be a MARTYR like JBJ, CSJ, CTP, Dr.Lim and many others.

    In the darkest hour of human civilisation, heroes and martyrs will always arise. Take heart that millions of fair-minded and righteous people will be praying for you.

      Previously there were already a few similar incidents, they did no wrong but except that they are homeless now. Home = S’pore.

    I don’t know what does Mr. Wong seek to achieve by interrupting an important court case in trying to prevent Ravi from carry out his lawful duties?? Would he like it if someone does it to him, especially a case of important political consideration. Is he acting with altruistic reasons by himself or worst ask by someone to do so??

    Let me be frank with you guy. For all the reason this Government have no authority to sell any inches of land here in Singapore. ANy Political Party that win the majority in the General election may form their own Government.My question is “DO THE PRESENT GOVERNMENT HAVE THE GENUINE GRANT TO SELL ANY PART OF THE LAND?”

    Approx 8 years ago, my friend needed a capable lawyer for an appeal to the high court against a district court judgment and engaged this “famous” guy connected to the Law Society. Unfortunately, on the trial date, the lawyer did not turn up giving the excuse that he had a tooth ache and had to go for a dental appointment. Instead, he arranged for someone junior to represent my friend at the last minute in front of the CJ. Later, my friend went behind bars, lost his job thereafter and his family entered into a period of darkness.
    Guess the name of this “capable” lawyer?
