One Country Two Systems : The Role of the Judiciary in Singapore:

The lenient punishment for the well heeled/powerful, the tough /harsh sentence for the powerless/poor.

Where junior staff can receive life imprisonment but senior staff get only a max of 7yrs jail for the exact same 'Criminal Breech of Trust' offence:

"I burned the flag of Singapore. I said: 'F*** you ... You are a garrison pretending to be a country.'" - Mr Duterte in a November speech, recalling how in 1995 he burned a Singapore flag to protest at the execution of a Filipina maid in the city-state.

The Junta Military General of Singapore that Mr Duterte referred to: who spends "all his time", "buying supporters votes " and "fixing his political opponents " instead of thinking "what is the right policy for Singapore".

Deja vu: This has nothing to do with recent events. The article appeared in The Straits Times of Dec 23, 1997.... ...
