MDA ASKS WEBSITE MOTHERSHIP.SG TO REGISTER UNDER BROADCASTING ACT

In a statement on Thursday, the Media Development Authority (MDA) said it had notified Project Fisher-Men on March 27, to register under the Broadcasting (Class Licence) Notification, which was enacted under Section 9 of the Broadcasting Act. The MDA said it had assessed that the website meets the registration criteria and it must register by April 11. This is as it promotes or discusses political issues relating to Singapore, and is "structured as a corporate entity which is deemed to be more susceptible to coming under foreign influence through foreign funding".

It added that the registration will not in any way affect what mothership.sg can publish on its site.
