As a Singaporean, I am really sad and disturbed at the way our judiciary and media have handled the CNB case.
The whole case has undoubtedly been sensationalised.
On the judicial front, what is disturbing was the sudden U-turn of how Cecilia Sue was called to the witness stand without informing the Defense Counsel Tan and his client.
I can only imagine how this CNB case is going to set the stage for the upcoming Professor Tey’s sex-for-grades case.
The media’s coverage of the case and Cecilia Sue in particular has literally destroyed this lady’s life.
An American lawyer recently commented to my spouse how he found the coverage of this case’s news to be disturbing and something you do not always find in other countries.
Often the details of sex, the victim’s home address, workplace, and employer, are spared so that the person’s future would not be destroyed. Here, the media just go for sensationalism without caring for social justice.
I really wish our country can be better than this.
