      Ladies and Gentlemen,

      On the 17th of November 2008, I was convicted and sentenced to 3 months imprisonment in Singapore for allegedly insulting a judge in a blog post in this blog. While I was serving sentence in prison with 1 week to go for my release, I was again charged for contempt of court for allegedly showing disrespect for the judge in another case, for saying things such as " I do not expect to get a fair trial in this court". As I knew that a denial of the charge would mean further time in prison, I pleaded guilty and said anything they wanted to hear, which resulted in no further jail time.

      Since my return to the US, I have not only further criticized the Singapore judges as corrupt and agents for the dictator of Singapore Lee Kuan Yew, as can be seen in all my 6 blog posts since Nov 28, 2008, I have further defied them by intentionally and publicly being in contempt of the court order off Judge Leslie Chew, of Court 15, Subordinate Courts Singapore by not only attacking the Singapore judiciary, but also by putting up the blog posts of Sept 1, 2008 and Sept 6, 2008, which were ordered removed.

      By reading this blog, you can see that I am deliberately attacking the Singapore judiciary by calling them stooges of the Singapore dictator Lee Kuan Yew. The Singapore government, their Attorney General and the Singapore judiciary cannot pretend not to know what I write here because it is they who had charged and imprisonment me for 3 months because of the contents of this blog.

      Singapore, as you know claims to be a first world modern city. It also claims to have the rule of law. It also claims to be a nation, proud of itself. In such a case, what I want to ask is this. Why, if this is so, if in fact Singapore claims to be country of laws; why is it doing nothing about a man in the United States deliberately calling its judges lackeys of the government and deliberately violating a court order; all of which has been given wide publicity, not only in Singapore but internationally?

      I am sure if any person, had deliberately broken the laws of America or Australia or India or any other self respecting country and escaped to another, that country would use all means to repatriate him to stand trial for his crimes and be committed to prison for his contempt. I am sure that I would not dare to violate a law of any state in the US and run to another country, because I am certain that I will face extradition proceedings to have me returned to stand trial. Why, because America is a proud nation and will not stand by to see anyone brazenly flouting its laws.

      I want to reiterate. While in Singapore, I had called Judge Belinda Ang a stooge of Lee Kuan Yew and his son, in my blog. According to Singapore judge Kan Ting Chiu, I had committed a serious, mind you serious, crime, for which he sent me to jail for 3 months. Now having returned to the US, I have done the same thing, expect that the criticism was even harsher. I have called High court judges Kan Ting Chiu and Judith Prakash shamelessly corrupt for being agents of Lee Kuan Yew and his government. What is more, I have deliberately broken a court order and boasting about it.

      The Singapore government's complete failure to pursue me by law, clearly confirms what I have said all along. This is a government that continues to stay in power by bullying it's people into not criticizing their policies, which they do by using compliant judges to imprison dissenters. The disgusting thing is that they know that if they ever tried to apply for extradition proceedings through the American courts, they would be laughed at as a bunch of comedians. Realizing that they have no chance of convincing an American court, or for that matter, an Australian or Canadian or British or French, or any court in the free world that I have committed a crime, they remain silent as I continue from here to expose the corruption of Lee Kuan Yew and his disgraced judiciary.

      As someone said it very nicely "Come and get me if you can, you bunch of bully boys. Why not try your dirty tricks in a free country, like the the USA"?
