SDP's Chee Soon Juan escapes jail term

SINGAPORE: The opposition Singapore Democratic Party (SDP) says it has raised S$20,000 through an online appeal to pay a fine for Secretary-General Chee Soon Juan. Dr Chee paid the fine on Thursday. Had he not paid the fine, Dr Chee would have had to serve a prison term of 20 weeks for making an address at a public place without a licence in 2006.
