The first time I heard of Dr Lim Hock Siew was when Martyn See made that video of a speech by Dr Lim in 2010. Swiftly, the Media Development Authority (MDA) banned that film in July that year. [Read about it here.]
The film remains banned till this day because, the authorities say, it is “against the public’s interest” for it to be allowed to be shown.
I then had the opportunity to meet Dr Lim on several occasions, most notably a private session conducted by Function8, where Dr Lim related his side of the story of the events leading up to his incarceration in 1963’s Operation Coldstore. He would remain detained in jail for almost 20 years under the Internal Security Act (ISA).
