OWNERS OF SOCIOPOLITICAL WEBSITE THE REAL SINGAPORE ARRESTED UNDER SEDITION ACT

Two of the three people behind The Real Singapore (TRS), a socio-political website, have been arrested.

This follows a Feb 4 article where the duo are said to have embellished an article posted by a witness of an incident during the recent Thaipusam festival.

The TRS article had claimed a Filipino family had sparked an exchange which led to three Singaporean men being arrested on Feb 3.

But no Filipino family was involved.

The original author of the article also denied the involvement of a Filipino family.

Police confirmed the arrest of a Singaporean, 26 and an Australian woman, 22.

The two were arrested on Feb 6 under the Sedition Act and investigations into the case are ongoing.
