OK to help accused

PPIM denies raising funds (News Without Borders, Oct 10) refers. As a consumer advocate, I see this consumers association's support in raising funds for the accused is not wrong.

The association did a yeoman's service for which it should be praised rather than being criticised.

Really not much reason to do so. Anyone can pay a court fine and have the accused released.

Usually, family members help to pay the fine. But if no family member is available anyone can pay the fine. No big deal. That is the law. It was complied with

I thank the consumers association for being so caring in this case and had the woman sent home. If the fine was not paid she would be in prison for some six months.
