I’m sorry, yet not so sorry, for Dr Chee and Mr Gandhi having to do time in prison.
Sorry, because as a Singaporean who knows in his heart that 2 of his fellow countrymen have just been denied natural justice, I can do nothing more than stand back and watch the episode unfold.
But yet, there is no need to feel sorry, because these 2 gentlemen’s courage and determination have led the way in the struggle for democracy and for the rights of the people. Instead of feeling sorry, we should feel a sense of pride and admiration for them!
I pray that time will accord Dr Chee and Mr Gandhi their rightful place in Singapore’s history.
