The blogs and social networks today were all about how a member of the Singapore Law Society demanded the attention of the Judge at the hearing of "the Hougang By-Election case".
The spokesperson from the Singapore Law Society made a statement to the media only to show why mixing the two professions of Law and Public Relations can be the start of a very bad joke.
The spokesperson said: "The Law Society informed the judge of the contents of the letter as it felt that it was in the public interest to do so, and as officers of the court. To be clear, there was no application whatsoever by the Law Society to in any way prevent Mr Ravi from appearing in court."
The spokesperson said that the Law Society is "not in a position to comment on the contents of the letter, as this is a matter of a member's confidential medical records".
Wait a minute, if it is in "public interest" for the Law Society to inform the judge of the contents of the letter, why is it the spokesperson in no position to comment on the contents of the letter, as it is confidential media records?
If it is in "public interest" shouldn't the public be aware of the contents of the letter and "public interest" to be aware of comments from the Law Society?
