Today marks yet another major crossroad of my life. I have discharged my lawyer Mr Michael Khoo and the court has officially acknowledged it. More significantly, I have decided to represent myself in court henceforth.
This decision comes after much thought and deliberation as well as prayer and counsel. Mr Khoo has been a great help as well as a supportive friend to me, but I have a deep personal conviction that I need to speak and deliver my defense in person. It isn’t easy for most to understand this move, but I believe it is the right thing to do. The prosecution has delivered its case, and the honorable judge has decided there is a case to answer. Now is the time for me to answer and I feel that i need to answer for and by myself.
The next tranche starts on July 14th and from now till then it will be an intensive time of self preparation. It is a big step of faith, and the road ahead will be rough, but I trust in the Lord that He will guide me through.
Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.”
