Lawyer Nair now accused of contempt of court

The Singapore Government is going to take former Singaporean lawyer Gopalan Nair to court again. It is accusing him of contempt of court.
The move by the Attorney-General (A-G) comes less than two months after Nair, who is now an American citizen, was jailed for insulting a High Court judge.
This time, the 58-year-old is alleged to have said, among other things, 'that the courts were being abused for political ends'.
Editor: Anyone with half a brain knows that Singapore courts are in fact used for political ends. Lee Kuan Yew is a first class asshole.
