Kangaroo T-Shirt Contempt

Oh dear, three Singaporeans have been jailed for contempt of court after rocking up in court wearing t-shirts depicting kangaroos in judges robes.They weren’t even on trial but were there to lend support to Chee Soon Juan and Chee Siok Chin who had been found guilty of defaming Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and former leader Lee Kuan Yew. Well the judge didn’t see the funny side of their attire and charged them with contempt. Isrizal Bin Mohamed Isa, Muhammad Shafi’ie Syahmi Bin Sariman and Tan Liang Joo John were all given jail terms ranging from 7 to 15 days.Tan is the Assistant Secretary-General of the opposition Singapore Democratic Party so he was given the longest sentence (of course). There will be no Kangaroo Court insinuation in Singapore thank you. Hmm, maybe they should have picked a less offensive marsupial?
