PM Lee Hsien Loong takes action against blogger Alex Au over PAP-AIM posts


Yahoo! News Singapore, 4 Jan 2013
In the latest twist to the saga over a computer systems deal involving Singapore’s ruling People's Action Party (PAP), blogger Alex Au was on Friday served a letter demanding he take down a blog post about the issue.
Local media reported that Au was asked to remove the first of a series of four posts he had written and published between 21 December last year and Thursday on his blog, all of which were entitled “PAP mis-AIMed, faces blowback” — with the second through fourth posts suffixed part 2, 3 and 4, respectively.
In the letter, signed by Drew and Napier Senior Counsel Davinder Singh, Au’s post was said to contain “very serious suggestions of criminal breach of trust”, and because he referred to the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau and the Attorney-General’s Chambers, “of corruption” as well, reported TODAY.
According to the daily, Singh also highlighted 21 comments on Au’s post that he said, when either taken together with the blog post or read on their own, would suggest that PM Lee “is guilty of corruption in relation to the AIM transaction and will abuse his powers to cover up the matter or prevent any investigation into his corruption”.
