范国瀚1/4今天前往章宜监狱报到开始7天服刑了。

Jolovan Wham reported to the High Court this morning for the purpose of being sent to Changi Prison.

它是在去年在脸书个人网页上发表了个人观点而被控触犯了藐视法院的罪名成立。可以肯定地说,在我们当中99.9999%根本就没读过他写的帖子。我不知道,确实到底有多少位法官有时间上网阅读脸书上那么多的帖子,特别是像范国瀚这样可怜的社会工作者。

Jolovan was convicted of contempt of court for posting just a few words on his facebook. In all probability, 99.9999% of us did not even read what he wrote. And I really do not know how many of our judges have the time to read facebook posts especially that of a poor social worker like Jolovan

 

 

而根据我们的法律,总检察署起诉了范国瀚,并胫骨数名法官审讯裁决他触犯藐视法院罪名成立。在这部法令下,那些名誉受到范国瀚损害的人和那些我们眼前的尊严受到破坏,判处范国瀚罪名成立坐牢。法院判处他缴交罚款五千元,或者坐牢一个星期替代之,作为能够挽回范国瀚对他们犯下的严重错误。

And so in accordance with our laws, Jolovan was prosecuted by the attorney general and convicted by several judges. Under the law the very persons whose reputation was undermined by Jolovan and whose esteem before our eyes was damaged, judged him and sent him to prison. Only a fine of $5000 or in default a week’s jail can undo the grave wrong he committed against them.

然而,早几十年前,英国已经废除了触犯诽谤法院或者是藐视法院的法律。英国曾经是我们殖民地主子。新加坡国会实施这部严厉的法律,现在改称为《司法行政(保护)法令》比起当时英国实施的相关法律有过之而不及。它所涵盖的范围及处罚广泛广泛和严厉。

While the offence of scandalising the court or contempt of court was abolished decades ago in the United Kingdom, our once upon a time imperial master, Singapore’s parliament enacted that very law, now called the Administration of Justice (Protection) Act with even more enthusiasm. Both the scope and punishment have been enhanced.

我敢直率地说,对于热爱和平的新加坡人民来说,从2016年开始实施《司法行政(保护)法令》一直是针对公民社会运动而制定的恶法。这部法令以及许多类似法律的实施,新加坡倍受国际赞扬的美丽国家的美誉已经受到了损害。新加坡人的灵魂已经被这些严苛的法律所摧毁了。这些法律的事实不是在保护人民而是在保护当权者。

The Administration of Justice (Protection) Act has been the scourge of civil society and I dare say of peace loving Singaporeans ever since its enactment in 2016. The image of beautiful Singapore internationally has been damaged by this law and many more. The soul of Singaporeans has been destroyed under the barage of harsh laws which protect those in power rather than the common person.

这是范国瀚第一次入狱服刑。我已经无法统计他到底还面对多少被起诉的案件。在任何的发达国家,像范国瀚一样的社运工作者是被视为国家难得的人才。他所贡献的成就比起那些领取百万薪金的部长来的高。

This is the first time Jolovan is going to prison. I have lost count of how many charges he is facing today. In any other developed country, citizens like Jolovan would have been treasured. He has done more good than any of our million dollar ministers.
