Dr. Chee Soon Juan
Secretary General
Singapore Democratic Party

Dear Dr. Chee,

We would like to express our concern about your situation.

We are disheartened by the way the Singaporean authorities have tried to subdue dissent through the legal system as a way of silencing legitimate grievances.

In our previous resolution, we expressed our regrets regarding the practice of the Singapore government to disadvantage the opposition candidates in national elections through politically-motivated bankruptcy and the tendency of the PAP-dominated government to use laws selectively that are detrimental to non-controlling party members.

We fervently pray for your wellbeing especially now in this time of need that you are in prison and in frail health.

Please remain assured of our solidarity in the cause of freedom and democracy.
