don't you just love the Singapore law system and our high-court judges. i SALUTE Justice Chao Hock Tin for being able to connect with us everyday Singaporeans!
Best lah! He actually used the phrase 'Act Hero' in court!
the court case goes something like this-
There was once a silly man named Mr Lee. Because he was angry with a neighbour over an enbloc dispute decided to put glue in his neighbours locks. Of course he kena complained and then he got hauled to court. There, Justice Chao sentenced him to a fine of $1,260 on account of his mischief. Mr Lee laughed it off telling reporters he spends more than that on one night of karaokeing. Waaah! This made many people unhappy. Even Justice Chao was unhappy. So since this Mr Lee talk so big and 'ACT HERO', Justice Chao decided to times four the fine to $4,800.
The funniest part about this was when Justice Chao explained the increase in fine.
See, this sort of language, everybody understand hor! Maybe if Justice Chao talk that sort of Singlish language like that to Mr Lee in the first place, maybe he don't act so hero right?
Justice Chao asked Lee, 63, if he was a grandfather. When Lee said yes, the judge continued: 'We are supposed to act more responsibly. 'I would expect things like this to be said by a youngster trying to 'act hero'...but I don't expect such things to be said by you, especially after serious proceedings in court.'
Wah liao- this Mr Lee very lucky never kena throw in jail one! =)
