Singapore Minister J Shanmugam on how police handled Yishun incident involving elderly woman, corrects The Online Citizen Asia on their version…


SINGAPORE: Home Affairs Minister K Shanmugam has rejected an application by socio-political website The Online Citizen (TOC) to cancel a Protection from Online Falsehoods and Manipulation Act (POFMA) order issued against it.

“The conditions for issuing the correction direction are satisfied, and the application did not disclose any grounds to the contrary,” the Ministry of Home Affairs said in a statement on Friday (May 28).

“After having carefully considered the application, the Minister for Home Affairs has decided to reject it. The Online Citizen Asia has been notified of the rejection.”

With Mr Shanmugam’s rejection, TOC can choose to appeal against the minister’s decision in the High Court.Source: CNA/hz(cy)
