总检察署拒绝调查李总理 SDP致函总统要求撤销对黄鲁胜的总检察长的委任

2017年 7月 25日

总检察署已经拒绝了调查有关李伟玲医生和李显扬先生指控总理李显龙已经在国会里滥用职权和发表虚假声明。

总检察署在回覆新加坡民主党2017721日的函件里指出:“(它们)不会对(民主党)来函所提出的有关的指控进行调查。有关人士指控任何人涉嫌犯罪行为,必须向警方报案投诉。”

这是一个极其虚伪与荒谬的说辞。最近尽管总检察署并没有提到有任何人向警方投诉报案,但是,总检察署已经表明,它们将会进行“调查”有关李绳武在其私人FACEBOOK网页里发表有关批评新加坡的司法制度。

确实的。假设总检察署可以“调查”FACEBOOK私人网页的私聊,那么,它也可以调查有关总理滥用职权的指控。

同样的。在1997年,当时的陈锡强总检察长也调查过吴作栋先生和其他部长在投票日当天进入选举投票站。尽管他们非常清楚这是没有被授权下进行这样的活动的。

正如1997年事件,那位“被指控者”涉嫌触犯法律的人是新加坡人。假设陈锡强总检察长——甭管他的回答是那么愚昧。他说,吴作栋先生和他的随行者没有在投票站外等待,而是在投票站里,但是这并没有触犯有关的条例。——陈锡强总检察长在接到投诉后也进行了调查。同样地,总检察长黄鲁胜也可以进行类似的调查。

当然附带着的问题是,总检察长黄鲁胜在他被委任为总检察长之前是总理的私人律师。这是整个问题的关键所在的事实无法向公众透露那个时候他已经获得总检察长的委任书了。

在这样的情况下,新加坡民主党已经致函给陈庆炎总统撤销对黄鲁胜的委任。在宪法第22条(1)款下是赋予总统这样的权利。

黄鲁胜先生是在2017116日进行宣誓就任成为总检察长的。无论如何,事实就是,在20176月揭露了黄鲁胜先生曾经是总理的私人律师。总统可能并不知这个事实上或者不知道其完整的含义。

黄鲁胜与总理之间的关系是在他被受委为总检察长之前,已经产生了严重的利益冲突了。对于总统来说,撤销对委任黄鲁胜为总检察长的决定就是对新加坡人民的利益做出正确的决定。

总统任何的延误或者拒绝进行这项决定将只会造成削弱我们老百姓对公共机构更大的信心的.

 

AGC refuses to investigate PM Lee; SDP writes to President to revoke Lucien Wong’s appointment as AG

    2017 » July » 25

 

The Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) has refused to look into Dr Lee Wei Ling’s and Lee Hsien Yang’s allegations that PM Lee Hsien Loong had abused his powers and made false statements in Parliament.

In its reply to the SDP on 21 July 2017, the AGC said that it “does not undertake investigations into the matters alleged in the letter. The persons who are the subjects of any criminal offence alleged to have been committed may lodge a police report.”

This is a curious, if not altogether hypocritical, stance. The AGC recently indicated that it would “look into” Mr Li Shengwu’s private Facebook posting which criticised the judicial system even though there was no mention that anyone had made a police report against Mr Li.

Surely, if the AGC could “look into” private Facebook messages, it can look into the serious accusations of the abuse of power by the Prime Minister.

Also, in 1997, then AG Chan Sek Keong had investigated the matter of Mr Goh Chok Tong and other ministers entering polling stations on voting day even though they were clearly not authorised to do so.

As in the 1997 incident, the “persons who are the subjects” of the alleged offence are the people of Singapore. If AG Chan – despite his inane answer that Mr Goh and company had not committed an offence as they were inside the polling station and not waiting outside it – could investigate the incident, surely AG Lucien Wong can investigate the present matter. 

The added problem, of course, is that AG Wong was the PM’s personal lawyer prior to his appointment. This crucial fact was not disclosed to the public at the time the appointment was made.

Given the situation, the SDP has written to President Tony Tan to revoke Mr Lucien Wong’s appointment. Under Section 22(1) of the Constitution, the President is empowered to do so.

Mr Lucien Wong was sworn in as AG on 16 January 2017. However, the fact that Mr Wong was the PM’s personal lawyer was revealed to the public only in June 2017. The President may not have been aware of this fact or its full implications.

The association of Mr Wong with PM Lee prior to his becoming the AG has created an acute conflict of interest which cannot be ignored. It is important that President Tan does the right thing in the interest of the people of Singapore and revoke Mr Lucien Wong’s appointment as AG.

Any further delay or refusal to act will cause even greater erosion of confidence in our public institutions.
