No transcript, where is justice? No transcript to prepare for trial, where is the fair trial?
It has been a month since the 4 days of trial we had from 13 to 16 October 2015.
Singapore’s court took SGD$15 for application for transcript and told us to prepare more money for the transcript as it will cost SGD$0.50 per page.
However, they have now decided not to give us the transcript.
A month has passed and time is running out for us.
Without the transcript, we won’t be able to prepare for the additional 3 days trial from 24 to 26 February 2016.
Is there justice?
Is this a fair trial?
Why are we not given the court’s transcript to prepare for our defence?
With the delay and not being given our transcript, how can we have a fair trial when we do not have adequate time to prepare for our defence?
Is there basic human rights to a fair trial and legal aid?
On 9 Mar 2015, the first of six could not take the public pressure and pleaded guilty.
On 7 Oct 2015, the second of six did the same as well.
On 23 Oct 2015, the third of six gave up to secure his employment.
Must we plead guilty too?
How can we have a fair trial when we do not have the transcript and adequate time to prepare for our defence?
