It is now public knowledge that Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong is suing veteran Singaporean blogger, Leong Sze Hian for defamation over a  Facebook share he made on his Facebook profile, on 7 Nov.
The  article which Leong shared was an article by States Times Review (STR), entitled, "Lee Hsien Loong becomes 1MDB’s key investigation target", which was published on 5 Nov.

The article claimed that  editor-in-chief of investigative journalism platform Sarawak Report (SR)  Ms Clare Rewcastle had mentioned Singapore as "one of the key  investigation targets, alongside Switzerland and United States"  in the 1MDB scandal during an interview with Malaysian media.The claim was rebutted by SR, calling it "misleading" and "erroneous," and made a  request for STR to "correct the false claim."

Good to see anyone taken to task for spreading fake news ... especially those providing links to unverified news chosen to mislead the good but naive feeble-minded Singaporeans  >:(
