AGC Singapore responds to statement supporting Alex Au, 5 Dec 2013
The Attorney General’s Chambers (AGC) on Thursday responded to a statement supporting blogger Alex Au purportedly signed by 170 academics, civil activists and artists, and sent to the media on November 29, 2013.
The “Statement on AGC Action against Alex Au”, expresses concerns over the AGC being granted permission by the High Court to take legal action against Mr Au for one of his blog articles, citing the constitutional right to freedom of expression.
The AGC statement said the allegations severely undermined the judicial officers’ standing, and the authority of the judiciary as a whole.
The statement said, “if Mr Au has erred, then his claims should be rebutted in public.” Full story
