Roy Ngerng's Legal Defense Fund reaches target of $70,000 in just 4 days as donations pour in from the public supporting his cause

Comment: This shows that Singaporeans are clearly unhappy with the current state of the CPF system, and are prepared to support someone like Roy who speaks up on their behalf.


The Heart Truths, 2 Jun 2014
Dear Singaporeans, first off, thank you so much to everyone and to all Singaporeans for your support! Today is Day 4 of the fund raising and we have managed to reach the target of $70,000. You can read more about what the court case is about and the fund raising appeal here.
I would like to thank everyone for the support and for the unity that we have shown. I had managed to speak to several Singaporeans who had passed the funds to me. They had wanted to thank me for standing up on behalf of Singaporeans to voice out. Please know that the support you give means a lot and I will continue to stay strong and stay on course with everyone.
As I had shared on my Facebook, I will update on the funds raised to be transparent and accountable. Please see below for further information on the funds raised so far, as of 5.00pm today.
