Freedom of assembly? Arrested and given the right to know why? Arrested and given access to a lawyer? These are rights guaranteed by the Singapore Constitution that took effect during Independence in 9 August 1965.
Unfortunately, the corrupted PAP dictatorship had a new law to render the Constitution useless. And it is called the “Criminal Law (Temporary Provision) Act of Singapore” – in short, the CLTPA.
The CLTPA was enforced by the British Colonial government has been “temporarily” in effect since 1955, a decade before the Constitution was written.
The “temporary” effect was extended in Feb 2018, under dictator Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s order and complete control of the Parliament, where he had over 90% representation of the 89 MP seats. CLTPA – with its imbalanced power surpassing even the Constitution to arrest anyone including Parliament MPs – is expected to be in effect under Oct 2024, as an insurance to ensure that the PAP government do not lose power.
The only person who can order the arrests is Lee Hsien Loong’s top dog – Home Affairs Minister K Shanmugam.
With the state media under Lee Hsien Loong’s direct control, it is easy for the mainstream media to set up the opposition and any government critic with false charges – as they did in 1963’s Operation Coldstore and 1987’s Operation Spectrum.
The coming General Election in December this year is likely to see the fall of PAP, but Singaporeans are best advised to know that the CLTPA will likely come into effect to reverse election results.
Some may ask why I would think so? It is simple, Lee Hsien Loong and his cronies have committed grave incriminating offenses, that would warrant lengthy jail sentences. The dictator will go through great lengths to keep himself in power, and more importantly, his own reputation.
Singaporeans need not look further than where Lee Hsien Loong does not want you to know: the glaring opacity of the national reserves and CPF funds in GIC and Temasek Holdings.
Money is definitely missing, and this is why he is asking for S$100 billion for his latest “climate change” project. The hundred billion is likely to top up the investment losses that the government covered up since Independence.
There is no need to ask why the chairman of GIC is none other than Lee Kuan Yew himself, and handed over to Lee Hsien Loong, instead of Goh Chok Tong. Or why the PM wife Ho Ching is Temasek Holdings CEO. Or why Chip Goodyear left the sovereign wealth fund company barely a year after becoming CEO.
There is also no need to ask why elderly Singaporeans are getting S$200 a month in CPF returns, and why there is a need for the government to raise taxes and increase CPF rates.
Lee Hsien Loong committed criminal breach of trust, abuse of power, and. Treason.
Everything will be clear once Lee Hsien Loong lose power, and the CLTPA is his insurance policy to ensure his world does not fall apart.
