Tan Wah Piow wrote Let The People Judge in 1987. It debunks the allegation that he is a communist, and the repeated charge by the Singapore government that he is the mastermind behind a ‘Marxist Conspiracy’ to “subvert Singapore’s political and social order using communist united front tactics”.

This new book reproduces the earlier publication and adds an important, and cogent, analysis of the government’s action, which took place behind smokescreens and mirrors as on a magician’s stage.

Dr G Raman, who was involved in the court case in which Wah Piow was embroiled back in 1974, categorically states in the foreword: “The trial resulted in a distortion of justice.” Students of Singapore’s political and social history would be intrigued by this eye-opening read.
