Singaporean website prosecuted over election coverage

News

Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on the Singaporean prime minister’s office to drop its absurd “illegal election activity” complaint against the New Naratif website over five Facebook posts in the run-up to last July’s elections, as a result of which the police have already interrogated the site’s managing director and searched his home.

It seems that covering an election campaign can lead to arrest in Singapore. This, at least, is the bizarre experience of New Naratif managing director Thum Ping Tjin.
