Activist M. Ravi has posted breaking news of his intention to commence defamation suits against The Online Citizen and journalist Kirsten Han for publishing allegations of Ravi's misconduct in a recent death penalty activism case.
The article in question, "The Dastardly Fall of M Ravi: His Unforgiveable Behaviour in Prabagaran’s Case" was published on The Online Citizen on 16 July 2017.
As one of the founding members of the Singapore Anti-Death Penalty Committee, Ravi has also taken it upon himself to counter-accuse his former intern lawyer Choo Zheng Xi and another junior lawyer Priscilla Chia of alleged "poor legal representation" for Prabagaran's case.
Prabagaran Srivijayan was a convicted drug trafficker sentenced to hang in 2014. After numerous appeals were exhausted by all his lawyers, including M Ravi, he was hanged on the 14th this month for his offences at Changi Prison.
