Another blog described my effort to help the investors get a fair settlement as "futile". It is a sad state of affairs that we have a government that ignores the plight and appeal of the people. It is equally sad that we have many cynics who stand by and pass discouraging remarks.
Many signatories know that the petition may be ignored, as it has happened in the past. But, they are willing to come forward to have their voices heard. It is important that their signatures be placed on the record.
The situation has now changed, and it may warrant a re-consideration by our government. All investors in Hong Kong are being compensated at a minimum of 60% to 70% of the invested sum. I believe that the investors in Singpore should be treated on a similar basis, as the systemic mis-selling is similar in both territories.
I hope that everyone will take a positive approach and help to pass the message to all investors to sign the petition.
The petition is intended to include all investors, including those who have bought from the security firms. They have also been advised, either directly or indirectly, by the sales representatives who acted for the security firms. I hope that these investors will read the Petition more widely and come forwqrd to sign it.
