The Straits Times Facebook post* only mentions the dissenting judgment that got OUT-VOTED. The outcome of the case was the exact opposite – the judges decided that the Government is NOT a person who can sue for harassment under the Protection from Harassment Act. Can liddat one meh? Judging from comments, this has misled some people already.

*Just to clarify – the actual judgment is in the article, but I think most people would reasonably assume the Facebook excerpt would reflect – not contradict – the final decision. Confusing messaging.
