AGC PRESS CONTEMPT OF COURT CHARGES AGAINST ACTIVIST HAN HUI HUI

Political activist Han Hui Hui has received a legal letter from the Singapore Attorney-General's Chambers (AGC) informing her that they would commence contempt of court proceedings against her soon. According to her, the AGC had demanded for Ms Han, who was fined $3,100 last year over the #ReturnOurCPF protest in September 2014, to take down her online postings. In her postings, she insinuated that judges in her trial had lied in order to secure her conviction. The AGC says 6 of such postings by Ms Han are a contempt of court.
