On 23 January 2020, the Singapore government announced that it would block Lawyers for Liberty’s (LFL) website for failure to comply with a Correction Direction issued to LFL under the Protection From Online Falsehoods And Manipulation Act (POFMA). It was a drastic & unprecedented step by Singapore.
Since then, this website has experienced a great increase in traffic coming mainly from Singapore. This shows that banning websites or information is always counter-productive. The Singapore government should instead have responded with facts and rational arguments.
We will be posting much more information & articles related to human rights, freedom & democracy in this space, which will be of interest to both Malaysians and Singaporeans. Stay tuned.
