Lawyer Ravi to issue letter of demand to Law Society
Posted by temasektimes on July 21, 2012
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.
