Lawrence Wee Kim San was recently dismissed by Robinsons and is now applying to the High Court here to declare that Article 12 of the Singapore Constitution should apply to all forms of discrimination at work. Currently Article 12 mentions only race, religion, descent and place of birth as protected categories but also states, all persons are equal before the law and entitled to the equal protection of the law. In May of 2011 at the United Nations Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) Review, the Singapore Government declared, 'The principle of equality of all persons before the law is enshrined in the Constitution of the Republic of Singapore, regardless of gender, sexual orientation and gender identity,' and Wee's lawyers hope to test that commitment. A group of concerned citizens, calling themselves the Article 12 Non-discrimination @ Workplace Committee, have come together to support Wees application. Dr Roy Tan, a spokesperson for the committee said, Our name makes reference to the Constitutional provision that entitles everybody to equal protection of the law. In the coming days, the Article 12 Non-discrimination @ Workplace Committee will release further information on the campaign and opportunities for like-minded individuals to show their support. Wees lawyers say they are hopeful of clarifying Article 12 through the court action. With the challenge before the Court, Mr Wee, on behalf of all Singaporeans, is seeking a declaration that Article 12 should be interpreted to confirm the governments position that all persons, regardless of gender, sexual orientation and gender identity, are indeed and in fact protected by Singapores employment laws, the lawyers said in a statement.

Wee faces six charges of criminal breach of trust for her role in the alleged scam, and four other charges for falsifying accounts.

LionGold said it was in an advanced stage of negotiations with Minera IRL on a possible offer for the Latin American gold miner. Experts said the steep declines in these three counters have dented investor confidence in the small-cap stocks. Roger Tan, CEO of Voyage Research, said: "I think anybody who wants to go in and warn the market and warn investors about certain counters that they see should also bear this in mind, or else the ripple effect can sometimes go out of control."
