Leong Sze Hian crowdfunded $133,000 to pay Lee Hsien Loong

 The court ordered Leong Sze Hian to pay $133,000 plus cost to Lee Hsien Loong for defamation. Leong crowdfunded and the people, the public, duly sent him $133,000 to pay for it. The fund is still growing as there will be more to pay.  Davinder Singh, counsel for Lee Hsien Loong, has yet to send in his bill which is not going to be small, likely to be more than $133,000.

Lim Tean said the amount if excessive would be challenged and the court would have to decide what is fair. Of course what is fair is highly subjective and controversial. To some, $10,000 is big money. To some $1m is small change.

And there is still an option to appeal against the sentence which means the crowdfunding of $133,000 would definitely not be enough. How much eventually the people would have to cough out to help Leong Sze Hian to pay for reposting a facebook message without adding any comments that led to this defamation lawsuit is yet to be seen. 

Let's see how much is Davinder's legal fees.

All of you are kindly reminded not to anyhow forward messages in facebook, whatsapp etc etc. It can be a very costly and scary affair.  Leong Sze Hian had sleepless nights and stress for 2 and a half years just for reposting a facebook message originated from Malaysia...unless you have very deep pockets.

HAHA, Singaporeans have sent a message to the self-proclaim master of Singapore. We do not approve of your bully style of governance. Every time we see you bully anyone in your controlled courts we will crowd fund and we will pay any fine your judges set.

The ground obviously does not agree with the crown.

I think a prime minister of a country should be on a two-term basis with 4 years each. He can leave office after end of 1st term depending on his performance. And the people should have their say on whether he should continue another term or be removed. Voting or referendum by the peoples, be held to select a pm.

Actually, defamation lawsuits defame the ones who sue rather than reinstate their fame, because of:

1. Fame, once lost, cannot be reinstated, recalled or compensated.

2. The amount of money they gained from such lawsuits makes them look like greedy money-grabbers rather than graceful dignified personalities.

3. By exposing themselves to cross-examination, they degrade their own status and dignity.
