SINGAPORE Pat Elflein Womens Jersey , July 10 (Xinhua) -- A recording of Singapore's founding Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew reading the Proclamation of Independence will be played across the country on National Day to commemorate Singapore's Golden Jubilee, according to a media advisory of People's Association (PA) released on Friday.

The recording will be played at grassroots-led National Day Observance Ceremonies (NDOCs) and over all local TV and radio channels at 9:00 a.m. on August 9. The broadcast will be preceded by the sounding of sirens across Singapore.

Lee Kuan Yew didn't read the Proclamation himself in 1965, PA noted. The Proclamation was read by an announcer over Radio Singapore though it was issued in Lee Kuan Yew's name.

To make up for this lack, Lee Kuan Yew agreed three years ago to do a recording of himself reading the proclamation. As 50 years has passed since it was issued, Singaporeans will be able to hear the reading by Lee Kuan Yew for the first time.

Chief Executive Director of PA Ang Hak Seng said the Proclamation of Independence in 1965 marked the birth of the nation, the reading of Singapore's founding prime minister will remind Singaporeans of the core values which the pioneers embodied, such as community resilience, racial harmony and determination to overcome the odds.

After the reading of the proclamation, grassroots organizations (GROs) will lead residents at 82 NDOCs across the country in singing the National Anthem and reciting the Pledge, according to PA's press release.

More than 30 of PA's corporate and community partners have approached PA to organize their own NDOCs with the organization's support. It's estimated that 500,000 residents will participate in the NDOCs at over 200 locations in Singapore.

Chen Shifeng, the alleged killer of Jiang Ge, claimed he did not plan to kill the postgraduate student, reported ifeng on Monday.

On the first day of the trial, Chen said Liu Xin, the roommate of Jiang Ge, passed the fruit knife to Jiang Ge from the inside of the house and then closed the door right away. Jiang Ge rang the bell with the elbow several times but Liu Xin didn't open the door.

According to Chen, Jiang died from loss of blood. He said that Jiang fell down when he first stabbed her, but he defended his action saying "I didn't have any motive to kill her when I first stabbed her."

He also said "the next nine stabs had no causal relationship with the first stab".

Chen remained calm during the trial.

According to reports, the mother of the victim did not attend the court hearing.

The trial of the alleged murderer of Chinese student Jiang Ge began at 10 am on Monday in Tokyo. It will last seven days and the verdict is expected on Dec 20.

Jiang Ge, a 24-year-old postgraduate student, was killed outside her apartment in Tokyo over a year ago after she was reportedly attacked by Chen Shifeng while trying to defend his former girlfriend Liu Xin from him.

The mother of the victim Jiang Qiulian has been in Japan for 30 days, with the purpose of petitioning for a death sentence for the accused. The elder woman has accused Liu of being indifferent to the sacrifice of Jiang, sparking a heated online debate.

BUENOS AIRES, Dec. 18 (Xinhua) -- Argentine striker Carlos Tevez is committed to seeing out his contract with Shanghai Shenhua, according to his agent Adrian Ruocco.

The 33-year-old has been linked with a move to his former club Boca Juniors after just one season in the Chinese Super League.

But Ruocco told Argentine newspaper Ole that his client is "not thinking about" a return to Argentina.

"Carlos wants to see out his contract," Ruocco said, adding that Tevez is currently training alone to remain fit during the off season.

"We are at the disposal of the club and we will do as they say. We are not thinking about Boca. He is doing extra work so that these 45 days aren't lost and that he stays in shape."

Tevez scored just one goal in 16 appearances for Shanghai Shenhua in 2017 after joining the club from Boca on a two-year deal last December.

Capped 76 times for Argentina's national team, Tevez's career has also included spells at Corinthians, West Ham United, Manchester United, Manchester City and Juventus.

He rejoined his boyhood club Boca Juniors in June 2015 and helped the Buenos Aires outfit win the league title six months later.

Boca currently lead Argentina's first division standings with 30 points from 12 matches, three points ahead of second-placed San Lorenzo.
