White Paper

The Repression of Political Freedoms in Singapore: The Case of Opposition Leader Dr. Chee Soon Juan


Amsterdam and Peroff have a new white paper discussing the case of opposition leader Dr. Chee Soon Juan in Singapore. The introduction of the executive summary of the report is below, followed by a link for downloading the full paper.


This White Paper documents the repression of political freedoms in Singapore. It reviews how the Government of Singapore, under the leadership of the People’s Action Party (PAP), has monopolized the state’s apparatus to its own benefit. The result has been the denial of democratic rights and freedoms and the muzzling of domestic and international media.

The case of Dr Chee Soon Juan is examined in detail. Being the leader of one of Singapore’s most important opposition parties – the Singapore Democratic Party (SDP) – Dr Chee has been sued, charged, and sentenced ever since his first political act of opposition. He is recognized internationally and by human rights NGOs as a defender of political freedoms and has received the Defender of Democracy Award by the Parliamentarians for Global Action.

Read the rest of the report here.

    which you choose, you can integrate it with Windows Live Messenger.
    This isn’t anything new to the “Silver” accounts, though. There are The net online sites which provide each of these requirements: like for example ,, but are not tied to, Invision Costless Webpages certain, Invision No-cost Web pages 4, Xbox live, Gaming system Absolutely free Specific zones, Absolutely free Zone Amazing benefits, Business Pack Community forum, Video game Lagoon, Xbox 360 system, Display box Manage and more.
