When I was fired, both the Tan Tock Seng Hospital and the Ministry of Health sent out press releases to support the firing, saying that I had defamed the prime minister. The firing is political. The PAP government wanted to get rid of me. A few days before, I was told that the Ministry of Health had decided to meet with the hospital for the very first time in many years to discuss funding for HIV programmes. If the hospital did not fire me, funding for HIV programmes could be cut.
