SINGAPORE Democratic Party (SDP) chief Chee Soon Juan and his sister, Siok Chin, have decided not to appeal their sentences for contempt of court, they said on their party website on Tuesday.
They will present themselves in court on Wednesday noon to start their 12-day and 10-day jail terms respectively.
Explaining their decision, they said they were unable to file their notices of appeal by the deadline because they could not pay the $2,000 administrative fee.
They were sentenced on Monday and have up till the end of Wednesday to file their appeals, failing which they will have to turn themselves in to begin what is the stiffest sentence ever meted out in Singapore for contempt by scandalising the court.
The siblings were judged to have committed the contempt during a three-day hearing last week to assess damages in a defamation suit brought against them and the SDP by Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew and Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.
just when chee needs their support, every followers, idolisers and supporters just vanished into thin air. 2k isn't alot of money, how come no one help out when he most needs it?
