City Harvest Church Trial is not fair. If this is the Law of the Men, let the Law of the Lord correct it.

sharing this Facebook reply to a friend about the City Harvest Church Case which is still under the probe:
‘If this case is left unchanged, what spells for us in Singapore would definitely be not just a tarnish in the law system and national reputation ; but also the risk of having more evil leaders who make use of religion or any other means as a mask to cover up huge greed cases such as this one.
The other concern would be the brainwash of people’s mind into attaining this kind of crime.
Very ingenious as it is sinister.
There are probably more that we do not know.
Apart from these, the judiary is highly probable for having this kind of matter go pass this loose.
As common logic and ethics would have it, these people are criminals of the most sinister kind.
How the law diminish could their evil is totally frightening. ‘ – @Karen_Fu

Where common sense is defeated, it marks a serious tone to the way the law was set. And why it has become so. The final outcome of the case could set a precedent to future criminals to follow, and a questionable judiary system for many to be wary of. All critical to our nation’s reputation since independence, when the slightest of fraud could mean a heavy punishment.
When the sentence could lengthen instead of the set sentence, it was scarily being markedly reduced by either half or more.
Were the 6 involved genuinely repentant to have their sentence cut that much remains questionable. If fraud could become an innocent mistake under the use of religion to launder money, then what is to become of the religious groups in the future, should people attempt to make use of it to make money for themselves?
It was a relief that MP Shanmugham SC stated the case is not over yet as the government also thinks the sentence was too low. He reiterated that no one is above the law.
However should the outcome be negative, and the reduced sentence prevails; it would be a total nightmare for us Singaporeans. The nightmare which Law would no longer be just. And a twist in the lines of the law could actually defy commonsense. That would be a watershed downfall of a clean slate nation.
