我们以下是联署签名者的声明全文。

我们深切关注警方正在进行中的有关调查指控鄞玉林和张素兰破坏选举冷静日条例的事件。

我们对于警方人员在没有持有搜查令的情况下无选择性的取走了他们个人全部的资料。这些都是属于他们的私人财产。我们对此深表忧虑。

警方采取如此过度和恐吓的行动,与有关的指控他们的有关罪行是完全不相称的。警方如此的行动已经造成了对鄞玉林和张素兰的伤害。

为了公开表达政治观点——包括特别是在政党的政治观点方面——这是公民社会每一个公民的基本权力。如果我们要争取实现民主社会的立法者,而政府是真正代表这 个价值观点和人民的愿望的,每一个公民都必须有权无惧的表达他们自己的观点,特别是在政治、政党和选举过程中的课题上。

对于一个寻求了解有关冷静日的条例的个人来说,(选举局)在阐明有关禁止行为的条例是不够清晰的。一些人仅仅就是依据选举局的网站上所列明的有关“个人在向一个人传播(宣传)自己的政治观点,使用属于非商业性质基础的互联网、电话或者其他电子设备”的说法,可能会被他们合理的诠释自己发出的帖子是属于豁免范 围的。

(选举局)制定这样含糊不清的定义,对于哪些要自由表达自己的看法的个别公民来说是极其重要的。因为警方进行这样调查行动是完全不相称的。它的行为是以考核和 侵犯的性质替代了。警方的这种行为是要造成加剧恐惧的氛围,以便组织所有个人(公民)进行坦率的讨论政治课题——一个我们的国家所需要和拥有的讨论氛围。

我们注意到,在过去已经发生过一些候选人在冷静日期间破坏冷静日条例的事件。与鄞玉林和张素兰的事件相比,类似这样的事件的行为,对于选举过程中的冷静日所造成的更加要严重的。然而,我们至今还不知道这样严重的事件的调查情况。评估一个社会的价值观是在于公民普通进行自由互相交换彼此间的政治观点的限制标 准条例不可以比候选人还要来得严格。

我们再次呼吁政府确保立即归还被充公的所有属于鄞玉林和张素兰的私人财产,包括国家和警察从他们哪儿拿走的任何数据,我们要求立即全面的停止地他们所进行的调查工作。

Cease all investigations against Teo Soh Lung and Roy Ngerng

Posted on June 2, 2016 by workfairsg

https://singaporecan.wordpress.com/2016/06/02/cease-all-investigations-against-teo-soh-lung-and-roy-ngerng/

We the undersigned are gravely concerned by the ongoing police investigations into alleged breaches by Roy Ngerng and Teo Soh Lung of the Cooling Off Day rules.

We are disquieted by the seizure of their property from their homes, in particular without warrant, and the wholesale and indiscriminate archiving of broad swathes of their personal data.  These excessive and intimidating measures are completely disproportionate to any harm alleged to have been caused by the actions of Ngerng and Teo.

To openly express a political view – including and especially views on party politics – is the fundamental right of every member of society.  If we are to achieve a democratic society where legislators and the government are truly representative of the values and wishes of citizens, every individual must be free to fearlessly express their views of politicians, parties and electoral processes.

For an individual seeking to understand the Cooling Off Day regulations, the application of the prohibitions on individual conduct is not clear.  Someone relying on the wording on the Elections Department website, which indicates an exemption for “the transmission of personal political views by individuals to other individuals, on a non-commercial basis, using the Internet, telephone or electronic means”, might reasonably conclude that their posts were exempt.

Given this ambiguity and the great importance of freedom of expression for individual citizens, it is wholly inappropriate for police investigations of such an intimidating and intrusive nature to take place.  The main effect of this police action is to intensify a climate of fear that deters the frank discussion of political issues by all individuals – a discussion that our society both needs and deserves.

We note that there have been previous allegations of breaches of the Cooling Off Day rules by electoral candidates.  Such conduct is far more likely to cause the harm to the electoral process which Cooling Off Day is designed to avert.  Yet we are not aware of such draconian investigations made in those circumstances.  A society which values the free exchange of political ideas must not apply more restrictive standards to ordinary citizens than to electoral candidates.

We call upon the state to ensure the immediate return of all confiscated property to Ngerng and Teo, the removal of any data obtained from them from state and police possession, and an immediate and total cessation of the investigative process.
