famiLEE LEEgime's Imprisonment Strengthen Fighters

I don't think the celebration is just about Miss Chee being released from famiLEE LEEgime's prison, but the more and the rather that at least a dozen fighters are now very capable to handle the battles very well in courts and prisons of famiLEE LEEgime. Dozens more are very capable to handle matas at stations as well as streets. The upper hand is clearly no longer with famiLEE LEEgime. A week in jail is now nothing to these strengthened fighters.

Miss Chee being only a 1st offender in law for Misc Offenses Act's Maximum S$1000 fine to be sentenced on her most ridiculously, with about half a dozen other fighters. She is not only appealing the case in high court, refusing to pay the fine and don't mind to goto jail while appeal is awaiting to be heard. She had asked the famiLEE LEEgime's judge to put her in prison immediately and the judge initially refused, but just like how I repeatedly did before, she insisted persistently to had her own personal bond canceled and told court that she does not mind to have her appeal only serving the academic purpose if she won. The judge had no choice put to sign warrant to commit her to prison for a week after, she canceled her personal bail bond.

This were the same procedures as how I did it twice in the past few years.

Mr Gandhi and myself accompanied Miss Chee to complete these procedures, and believe it or not, it took half a day to convince LEEgime to take her into jail!

She attended trial with us daily while serving sentence this entire week, and like myself, the LEEgime prison had to fetch her back and forth to court daily, until this morning, they released her at earliest possible time @0830hr - earlier by one hour as prison had previously indicated to be 0930hr, and no of the dozens of friends; families and activists had reached even Changi Prison to welcome her.

When I arrived, she was sitting at the coffee shop alone reading books opposite the prison complex. She lost weight while in jail, but looks very healthy and cheerful. I tried to be at least 45 mins early knowing the extra early style of LEEgime prison release applicable to anti-LEEgime fighters all the time. But the LEEgime's jail still beat me by 15 mins earlier then I could arrive.

Later the arrival of others eventually filled 5 to 6 tables or half the coffee shop, a group picture was later taken, but not showing all those who were present to offer support.
