Bloggers who interrupted a charity event at Hong Lim Park to be charged accordingly.
The duo made famous by their protest against the government at a charity carnival held in Hong Lim Park are both being charged with being a public nuisance and staging a protest without approval. If convicted the duo would both be facing a fine for their part in the shameful protest that disrupted a performance by a group of special needs children.
The duo have been issued a conditional warning which stipulates that they are not allowed to commit any other offences within a given time frame usually 12 to 24 months. If they fail to keep with the warning they would be charged with new offences as well as the existing ones they’re being summoned to court for.
Mr Ngerng is also being sued by the Prime Minister for his blog post insinuating the misappropriation of Central Provident Fund Monies. Mr Ngerng claimed that they haven’t done anything illegal. That they have done everything legally within their constitutional rights and that the protest was done out of respect for fellow Singaporeans.
It isn’t illegal to have an opinion or to speak of your opinions and many Singaporeans felt that if they had chosen a better platform at a better time and chosen their words carefully it may not have seemed as harsh as it had come out to be.
