Former SDP vice-chairman involved 'couldn't even bear to hurt a fly'

Singapore — Singapore Democratic Party treasurer Bryan Lim dismisses the 1987 Marxist conspiracy as fiction.

He urges people to read 1987: Singapore’s Marxist Conspiracy 30 Years On (Solidarity Edition) to “find out the truth”.

He is reading the book himself two months after it was mailed to him, he wrote in a Facebook post on Sunday (May 23).

“4 years ago, I bought the original edition from none other than the purported ‘ringleader’ of the Marxist conspirators, Mr Vincent Cheng himself,” he shared, explaining that Mr Cheng was a former vice-chairman of the SDP.

In 1987, Mr Cheng was one of the 22 Singaporeans branded as a “Marxist conspirator” and arrested under Operation Spectrum. Then 40, he was the executive secretary of the Justice and Peace Commission of the Catholic Church and worked with low-income workers and the disadvantaged segments of society.

“Those who know him would find it laughable that a man who couldn’t even bear to hurt a fly was accused of having the guts to direct & pull off a Communist ploy to overthrown the PAP government then.” Mr Lim added, referring to the 1987 incident.

“If Vincent & the rest of the wrongfully detained are Marxist conspirators, then I am the King of Spain. Such fiction is only fit for the library shelves where you find Little Red Riding Hood & Cinderella,” he added.

“If you want to find out the truth from these honourable men & women, please support them by purchasing the book,” he wrote.
