“When I first started practice in 1995, most things were done manually and physically. For example, all the parties concerned had to exchange physical documents with each other; lawyers had to attend court physically; most of a lawyer’s work had to be attended to in the office as the physical documents were too cumbersome to lug home. But for litigation, it would be difficult to go online because litigation matters tend to concern individuals or parties who need the comfort of a face-to-face interaction with the lawyer.” – Mr. Chia Boon Teck

“Mr Lee [Kuan Yew] spent his life helping Singaporeans to put food on the table and build roofs over our heads. Since we need not worry about food and shelter, we can indulge in contemplating our right to hurt others with our words in the name of freedom of speech.” – Mr. Chia Boon Teck
Excerpt from article: ‘Lawyer Chia Boon Teck, who lodged one police report against Yee, said the young man’s statements against Lee “violate the Sedition Act.” Yee’s commentary against Christians also violated “the Penal Code as a ‘deliberate intent to wound religious feelings,” the lawyer said.’
“The individual had said many things against Mr Lee and the government that are defamatory under the penal code as well as in violation of the sedition act. His utterances against Christians also amounted to a ‘deliberate intent to wound religious feelings’ under the penal code. There is a limit to freedom of speech. If the line separating freedom and offence is crossed, the person will have to face the consequences.” – Mr. Chia Boon Teck
