SDP chief Chee Soon Juan addresses crowd at Speakers' Corner

SINGAPORE : Singapore Democratic Party (SDP) chief Chee Soon Juan and his supporters turned up at the Speakers' Corner for a planned march on Saturday.

Dr Chee addressed the crowd at Hong Lim Park and asked them to join him in a march to the Parliament House.

He walked to the junction of North Canal Road and South Bridge Road where he was advised by the police not to proceed with the march as outdoor demonstrations were not allowed.

Dr Chee and his supporters had been standing at the junction since Saturday morning.

The incident attracted the attention of passers-by and the media.

Police said they are investigating the matter.

They added that Dr Chee was still at the Speakers' Corner at 10.15pm, accompanied by his group of associates with a crowd of 20 bystanders.

Our maverick politician Chee Soon Juan seems to be getting a lot of coverage of late. If anything, he is courageous and persistent in exposing the "despotic" regime. However, is this kind of politics healthy for Singapore?

Well, i will comment at a later date. Too much work lately...
