It Has Begun! TOC's Terry Xu Served Letter By PM' Lawyers, He Is Being Sued As Expected

The Writ was served on 5 September at Terry Xu's house, which indicated that the article in question "contained statements that are false and baseless and were calculated to disparage and impugn PM Lee as well as his office as the Prime Minister.” Xu has 8 days to enter an appearance to defend the claim. This is also not the first time lawyer Davinder Singh has represented PM Lee in his defamation suits. He was involved when PM Lee sued Roy Ngerng in 2015, and most recently Leong Sze Hian, whose case is still ongoing.

Ok guys and gals, so all of you cheering the rediscovery of common sense in the judgement on the Protection from Harassment Act, remember that the case would never have come about if TOC had not published Dr Ting's side of the case.

Free speech still costs money, so put your money where your mouth is and support independent media in Singapore by contributing to the running costs of TOC.

TOC RESPONDS: INACCURATE NEWS FACTS ARE NOT FALSEHOODS, WE DO NOT MISLEAD OUR READERS

TOC prides itself on being an open platform. We welcome contributions and have very little control over what the public choose to write about. In Benjamin’s case, questions were raised, and people wanted answers. Their reactions were spontaneous. It was hardly an “orchestrated campaign”. Finally, we would like to point out that “inaccuracies” are not the same as “falsehoods”. Given the dearth of information available to us, it is natural that some of our reports were not fully accurate.

AMOS YEE IS MORE MATURE THAN MOST PEOPLE THINK

Reading the article where TOC interviews his bailor Mr. Vincent Law has really given me an insight on who Amos Yee is as a person. When Amos was taken back into remand, I had assumed 2 things. Either Vincent Law does not have the $30,000 to front or Vincent Law offered $30,000 to the front and Amos Yee declined his proposal.
