ROY NGERNG’S LAWYER CRITICISES TAN TOCK SENG HOSPITAL AND MINISTRY OF HEALTH

The lawyer for blogger Roy Ngerng has written to Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH) and the Ministry of Health (MOH) criticising them for public statements they made regarding Mr Ngerng's defamation suit after he was fired on Tuesday. Mr M Ravi said the suit, which is filed by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong against Mr Ngerng for alleging that Mr Lee misappropriated Central Provident Fund monies, is sub judice as it is still before the courts and "its outcome remains a matter for the courts to determine".

ROY NGERNG: “I ADMIT ALLEGATION WAS FALSE”

Some are accusing the hospital of jumping the gun by assuming that Ngerng is guilty of defamation before he has even gone to court. The thing is, in his letter of apology to the PM last month, didn't Ngerng pretty much "admit and acknowledge" defaming the PM in his blog?

TAN TOCK SENG HOSPITAL’S MEDIA STATEMENT ON THE DISMISSAL OF CPF ACTIVIST ROY NGERNG

Mr Ngerng is a patient coordinator at the Communicable Disease Centre who has been employed on a yearly contract with TTSH for the past two years. His supervisors found that he was misusing TTSH time and resources to pursue personal and non-job-related interests. In May this year, TTSH issued him a formal letter warning him of his misconduct when his contract was up for renewal, but decided to give him a chance and renewed his contract. In addition, Mr Ngerng's recent public actions and conduct have caused the Hospital grave concern. On 15 May 2014, he posted a defamatory article on the internet alleging misappropriation of funds in relation to the Central Provident Fund. After receiving a demand letter to remove the posts and apologise, Mr Ngerng publicly admitted to the defamation, and also that it was without basis.
