Dr Chee Soon Juan launches book to raise funds to discharge his bankruptcy
Posted by temasektimes on August 19, 2012
Singapore’s opposition leader and Secretary-General of the Singapore Democratic Party Dr Chee Soon Juan has launched his latest book ‘Democratically Speaking’ to raise funds to discharge his bankruptcy.
Dr Chee was bankrupted via a series of lawsuits launched by PAP leaders in 2006 and was unable to contest in the 2006 and 2011 General Election as a result.
Though he is not in parliament, Dr Chee is instrumental in raising public awareness of Singapore’s draconian laws suppressing human rights, far more than the elected ‘opposition’ whose pro-PAP MPs have earn the ire of disgruntled Singaporeans lately for not daring to speak up.
Dr Chee has published many books and is well respected in the West as a prominent Human Rights fighter in Singapore, in stark contrast to another long-term opposition MP who does nothing to advance democracy in Singapore other than put up a ‘wayang kulit’ together with the ruling party to lend a veneer of legitimacy to its autocratic rule.
