Amos in remand – a mother’s perspective

余澎杉母亲对儿子被监禁的观点

编者按:

余彭杉在2015年6月23日被国家法院法官以需要对他的精神状况进行再进一步评估为由,又再一次被谕令关押在心理健康学院2周,直至2015年7月6提在开庭决定选择以哪一种方式执行判决。这就是说,余彭杉直到2015年6月23日已经被扣押在监牢39天龙,在加上未来的14天还押在心理健康学院14天,这就是说,余彭杉总共被监禁的时间是53天了。

行动党再一次顽固的忽视国内外的呼吁,再一次把余彭杉关进精神病院!这是对这个小伙子的精神虐待和摧毁!

请您们在自己力所能及的范围广泛分享有关今天对于余彭杉的裁决的信息!我们相信,在我们的共同努力下,正义一定能够得到伸张!孩子的安全一定能够获得保障!让我们大家一起在精神上和行动上和孩子他妈一起共同努力!!!!

余彭杉的妈妈现在需要全新加坡的父母亲 和兄弟姐妹们给予精神上和行动上支持!

余澎杉母亲对儿子被监禁的观

余彭杉母亲出席法院聆讯

在星期二早上集聚在囯家法庭外的支持者与记者来说想必定是万分地失望,怎么说大家都希望余澎杉案件的判刑有个了结。

白白等了二个小时,只见控方和辩方进进出出法庭内 堂和法官私下交谈。从拘留处移至证人栏时, 余澎杉短暂的露面,只见他穿着囚衣並铐着脚镣。

当区域法官考尔(Jasvender Kaur) 进入法庭时,局势相当明显地对十六歲的影视博客不利。

评估是否适合改造训练的报告说 余澎杉的身理与心理状态皆适合进入改造训练所,可是心理医生 Munidasa Winslow 察觉到余澎杉可能患有自閉症譜系障礙(autism spectrum disorder)。

于是考尔法官便下令将余澎杉收押至精神病院,时限为二个星期来进行多一次精神评估,之后,她才将就改造训练或强制治疗令作出裁决。

每个离开法庭的出席者都对这又多一次的延期而感到困惑。沒有谁比余澎杉的母亲,卓玛利 (Mary Toh), 更为沮丧。她皱着眉头说:

“他们总是要把他说成精神不正常。”

由于法侓程序混乱使失落的她很难理解情况的发展。卓女士在她的坐位和拘留处之间来来回回,嘗试对情况了觧更多的详情,以便能採取最佳的行动。

她在离开法庭时说:

“我以为那三个星期的监禁(法官在六月二日下令)是为了做个全 面的评估。为什么现在还须要多二 个星期呢?”

自从她的儿子在三月二十九日,李光耀国葬那天,上载批评政客与基督的录影至 YouTube 后被逮捕。除了大众传媒的关注与网上猖狂炒作外,在充满压力的情況下 她还要奋力了解刑亊程序做出决定。她也要在监禁期间探望她儿子,让他知道亊态的发展並尽可能地照顾他的福利。

余澎杉至今断断续续已经被监禁了 39天。他在过去三个星期的遭遇让卓女士最为担心。

她告诉网络公民(TOC)

“我一贯是每星期探访他一至两次,可是当我发现他的情形恶化后,我嘗试每星期探访他三至四次。他长皮肤疹,他说全身痕痒。”

卓女士说:

毎次余澎杉被囚禁都是关在一间”特别牢房”:电灯是二十四小时开着(虽然晚上稍微 调暗奌),牢房则是受到闭路电视日日夜夜的监视。

“似乎只有他才被关在这只能容纳四人的特别牢房。当他被监禁期间,他们会转移二 至三位囚犯到这牢房。他们不可能会喜欢这装了闪路电视的牢房。”她说:”我不知 道为什么他被关在这牢房。我猜(当局)更像是在保护他。”

被监禁者一般每日被关在牢房二十三小时。他们被允许在其他时间到卓女士所形容为” 篮球场似的地方”较大的一处空间进行游戏或互动

这是唯一能摆脱毎天单调的生活,可是余澎杉告诉他的母亲:

在刚刚过去的囚禁期间的首两星期,他”放风”的时间往往被用於专家(根据卓女士,余澎杉没法子辨别这些人倒底是不是医生、心理医生、辅导员或监獄人员,但他说会见了不同的五组人)评估他的状况,回答同样的提问和一遍又一遍地重复同样的说法。

最令人痛心的亊发生在余澎杉向一位监狱心理医生表示有自杀念头后。根据卓女士以及人权监察机构从余澎杉的律师得到的消息,余澎杉被綑绑在床上一天半。

卓女士说:

“牢房已有闭路电视,为什么他们要綑绑他呢?”

在这亊件发生后,她補充说:

余澎杉的状况开始恶化。

她回憶道:

“他经常读很多书本,这協助他消磨时间。这事件后,他再也沒阅读了。他告诉我,你不用再带书来,我不要阅读了,我想他是被创伤了,他好像每天在发呆中渡过。”

余澎杉在法庭上举止的转变逃不过他妈妈的眼晴。

以往出庭的照片中显现的过度自信, 甚至飘飘然的少年,星期二的他只低着头坐在被告栏中。”他一贯的笑容与爽快, 可今天却不同。”

她说:

“他觉得疲倦却睡不着觉,这将使他的健康变的更糟榚,除了情绪问题外,还有牢房於那一盏灯。”

余澎杉相信这漫长的刑罚判决将会有个了结,到时他将知道命运如何。

卓女士说:

“等待对他是最难受,他想今天会做判决,案件有个了断。”

以为他能保释在外等候定罪上许的想法下,余澎杉还问他的律师和妈妈他是否能回家。 反之,他被带离法庭,依旧枷锁加身, 並要再被囚禁多一段日子。

除了查明几时,每回有多久,能去精神病院去探访她的儿子外,卓女士所能夠做的也只有这些。

她皱着眉头说:

“他也许患上亞斯伯格症候群症(Asperger), 可是自闭症不能医。即使他们给他强制治疗令,他们要怎样来治疗他?”

她还是希望接下来两星期对儿子会有好处。

“如果他能在这两星期中在心理卫生学院能得到妥 当的治疗和照料这还不要紧。我就不要他又在监禁中白白坐着浪费时间。他已经在那里好久了。”

Amos in remand – a mother’s perspective

By Kirsten Han

联合国声明(余彭杉事件)

Supporters and journalists who showed up at the State Courts early Tuesday morning expecting a sentence and closure to the Amos Yee saga found themselves bitterly disappointed. There was a two-hour wait with little to do but watch both the prosecution and the defence go in and out of chambers to speak with the judge. There were the brief glimpses of Yee, shackled and clothed in prison garb, shuffling meekly from holding to the witness room.

By the time District Judge Jasvender Kaur entered the courtroom, it was fairly clear that things weren’t going to go very well for the 16-year-old video blogger.

The report assessing his suitability for reformative training said that Yee was both mentally and physically fit for a stint at a Reformative Training Centre (RTC), but psychiatrist Dr Munidasa Winslow had observed that Yee might be suffering from autism spectrum disorder.

Judge Kaur thus ordered for Yee to be remanded for two weeks at the Institute of Mental Health (IMH) for another psychiatric assessment, after which she would decide between sentencing options such as reformative training or a Mandatory Treatment Order (MTO).

Everyone filed out of the courtroom, bemused by yet another delay. But there was no one more dismayed (with the possible exception of Yee himself) than his mother, Mary Toh. “They always want to paint him as mentally unsound,” she commented with a frown.

Lost and confused by legal proceedings she found difficult to understand, Toh had flitted back and forth from her seat to the holding room to speak with her son, trying to get as much information as she could on the best course of action.

“I thought the three weeks of remand [which the judge ordered on 2 June] was for a full assessment. Why is he in for another two weeks now?” she asked as we left the building.

It’s been a difficult time for Toh ever since her son was arrested on 29 March, the day of Lee Kuan Yew’s state funeral, for posting his YouTube video criticising both the statesman and Christianity. Apart from the media attention and the rampant online speculation, she’s had to grapple with criminal procedures and make decisions in stressful situations. She’s also had to visit Yee while in remand, keeping him up-to-date with developments and trying to look out for his welfare as much as possible.

Yee has already gone through 39 days – albeit not continuously – in remand. But it’s his experience of the past three weeks that has worried Toh the most.

“I used to see him about once or twice a week, but tried to see him three or four times a week when I saw that his condition was getting worse,” she told The Online Citizen. “He has rashes, and he says his whole body itches.”

Toh said that Yee is kept in a “special room” every time he’s in remand: the lights are on 24 hours a day (although dimmed a little in the night-time), and the cell is under round-the-clock surveillance via a CCTV camera.

“It seems like he’s the only one who must be in this special room, which can hold up to four people. When he’s there they sometimes transfer two to three cellmates there to join him. They aren’t really happy about it, because the room has CCTV,” she said. “I’m not sure why he’s in this room. I guess to [the authorities] it’s more like protecting him.”

Individuals in remand spend 23 hours a day in their cells. For the remaining hour they are allowed to go to a bigger space that Toh describes as a “basketball court type of place” where they can play games and socialise.

It’s the only break from the monotony of each day, but Yee had told his mother that for the first two weeks of his last period of remand, his hour of “yard time” was often taken up by his sessions with experts assessing his condition (according to Toh Yee was not very clear on whether they were doctors, psychiatrists, counsellors or prison staff, but said he had met about five different people), answering the same questions and repeating the same statements over and over again.

The most distressing incident came when Yee expressed suicidal thoughts to a prison psychiatrist. According to both Toh and information Human Rights Watch obtained from his lawyer, Yee was strapped to a bed for a day-and-a-half.

“Why did they need to strap him? There was already CCTV in his cell,” Toh said. It was after that incident, she added, that Yee’s condition appeared to deteriorate.

“He used to read a lot of books, and it helped to pass the time. But after that he didn’t read any more. He told me, ‘You don’t have to bring any more books, I’m not reading.’ I think he was traumatised,” she recalled. “It was like he went through every day in a daze.”

Yee’s changed demeanour in court was not lost on his mother. While photos of him at previous appearances show a cocky, even smug, teenage boy, on Tuesday morning Yee sat in the dock, head bowed. “He’s usually smiling and cheerful, but today it’s different.”

“He feels tired, but he can’t sleep, and this worsens his health,” she said. “It’s partly because of the emotional issues, and also the light in the cell.”

Yee had believed that his long wait for his punishment had come to an end at last, and that he would finally know his fate. “The waiting is the most difficult for him,” Toh said. “He thought today would be the sentence, that the case would be closed.”

Thinking that he could get bail pending an appeal of his conviction, Yee had asked both his lawyer and Toh if he could go home. Instead, he was led out of the courtroom, still in shackles, for yet another period of remand.

Apart from finding out when – and how often – she can visit her son at IMH, there is little more that Toh can do.

She frowns. “They say he might have Asperger’s, but you cannot cure autism. So if they give him an MTO, what treatment are they going to do?” she said.

Still, she hopes that the next two weeks will benefit her son in some way. “I don’t mind if he is in IMH for these two weeks receiving proper treatment and care. I just don’t want it to be wasted time just sitting in remand again. He’s already been there for so long.”

案件在6月3日开庭之日,数十名家属出庭听审时不时高喊口号,表达他们心中的强烈激愤以及对他们在狱中的亲人在牢内的人身安全的深切牵挂!

1971 年6月17日上午9时半,刘丽英同志被蓄意致伤的案子在第二法庭开审。以下是当天在庭内的情况:

刘丽英同志揭露:

她以为在拘留期间被令每天必须工作5小时而提出抗议,以绝食行动向当局表达坚决反对的立场。

刘丽英同志向法庭详细叙述:

自1971年3月2日早上起被监狱的狱卒暴徒殴打及侮傉的经过。她说,法西斯暴徒西哇傉骂‘她不是一个淑女’。‘今天我要教训你的父亲未曾教训过你的。’致使对她自己和她的父亲重大的侮傉。在忍无可忍之下,她把半杯水泼向这个暴徒。对方辩掴了她两巴掌,使她头昏眼花,并把她关在3号黑牢里。

她说,

她的弟弟在3月3日到监狱探访她时,一见到她的伤痕就感到惊讶。当她向弟弟提到被打的事件时,与家属通话的电话听筒就立即断线,探访也就结束。她也被送回牢房。

她说,

目前监狱当局已经将工作制度搁置了。

审讯当天,当天所有与案件有关的女政治被拘留者对出庭。法庭内外人潮汹涌。人民大众高度的关切、本地各报章及各国通讯员对这起诉讼案件极其重视。虽然女政治被拘留者已经恢复了进食一段时间了,但是由于长期绝食绝饮,又经历了百般的折磨。她们面部都出现了脸色苍白、身体浮肿和呈现普遍虚弱的样子等营养不良的状况。

开庭一天之后,案件展期一个月后续审。

13日当天,当刘丽英同志步入法庭时,庭内的亲属、朋友以及关心的她的社会人士全部都站起来,一一与她握手,表示深切的关怀与诚挚慰问。

法庭顿时呈现一片热哄哄的景象。他们高喊:

“还我狱中亲人!”、“打倒李光耀走狗政权”等口号。

有些群众更站在旁听席的椅子上向刘同志招手。在庭内的法西斯镇暴警察也束手无策。

刘丽英同志在庭上激愤的说,

“我没有罪。我不是犯人。我是政治被拘留者。我在1967年6月7日被捕的。”接着,她揭露了李光耀反动政权迫害同志们的暴行和指认并一一暴露了那些法西斯暴徒对她施加的各种暴行!

隔天,刘丽英同志继续在法庭进行供证。

她说,

“每次对她行凶的暴徒都是男狱卒,女狱卒很少在牢内。她们都市站在老远的地方。”

“主谋者是李光耀反动集团。他们与行凶者一样有罪。我们没有犯罪。为什么要受到这样的虐待?今天他们压迫我们、作威作福,。但是,十年、二十年、五十年、甚至一百年后,反动派终究会受到人民的制裁!胜利一定属于人民!”

刘丽英同志的这一番激动和鼓舞人心的讲话,使到整个法庭响起了雷鸣般的掌声和欢呼声。此时,法官宣布清堂。随之,大批的警察涌入,把出席旁听的群众连拖带拉的赶出现场。

如所预料。15日那天法庭宣布因为‘证据不足’,行凶的监狱官员和狱卒暴徒获得‘无罪释放’!

刘丽英同志闻讯,立即高举右手、紧握拳头、高喊抗议。在场的亲属与群众也纷纷加入高喊:“我们无罪!”、“立即释放狱中的亲人!”、“法西斯暴徒绝对不会有好下场!”、“打到李光耀走狗!”等口号。

警察把法庭内的群众赶出法庭之后,愤怒的群众聚集在法庭外不肯离去。结果与警察发生了互相扭打的局面!双方僵持了好一段时间。

黄桂英同志原本订于16日上庭。但是,又展延到26日。

13

在法官宣布退庭后,黄桂英同志被两名暴徒强行抬走。她大声抗议暴徒对她无理。出席旁听的群众见到此景非常不满,他们高喊:“抗议虐待女政治被拘留者!”的口号。致使黄桂英同志被推倒,又被4名魁魁梧的暴徒猛力按住强拉捉走。

这时,警方把法庭团团围住,准备向在场的群众进攻!家属和群众忍无可忍,于是与警方发生冲突。从庭内到庭外,愤怒声和嚎叫声四起。多位年迈的妇女都被警察打伤。

全体女政治被拘留者于该月26、27、28、29及8月2、3日在出庭揭露真相和指认施暴的狱卒。家属与大批群众再度出庭旁听。给予受难的女政治被拘留者提供了支持和关怀。待续)
