Posted by temasektimes on September 11, 2012
Dr Chee was sued for defamation by the two leaders in 2006 for $500,000 and was bankrupted as a result.
In an update posted on the official website of the Singapore Democratic Party, Dr Chee revealed that the Official Assignee has replied to him that Mr Lee and Mr Goh have both indicated that they “have no objection” to the offer of $30,000 as settlement of the matter.
Dr Chee wrote that he will be working to raise the sum to pay them through the sale of his books and that his plans to contest in the next General Election:
“I look forward to being formally cleared of my bankruptcy so that I am eligible to stand in the next general elections in 2016 and lead a party that would rival the PAP as the potential ruling party.”
