States Times Review lied. Singapore Management University law don Mr Eugene Tan did not mention States Times Review at all. Stroking own ego too much? STR just proved Mr Tan’s point about falsehood right.
SINGAPORE — With dozens of online platforms passing off falsehoods as “citizen journalism”, individuals are increasingly empowered by social media to harass organisations, and the possibility of amending the Protection from Harassment Act (Poha) to include entities such as the Government is a welcome one, said legal experts.
Singapore Management University law don Eugene Tan — who had participated in the debates on the anti-harassment Bill as a Nominated Member of Parliament in 2014 — said Poha, if applied to non-natural persons, will “fill a lacuna in the law”.
