Hello everyone, this is an update to the defamation suit with the prime minister.
I have to pay a total of S$180,000. (I have to pay him S$150,000 in damages and S$30,000 for the costs of the hearing.)
(1) I have to pay S$30,000 by this Wednesday.
(2) From April 1, I have to pay $100 every month for 5 years.
(3) After 5 years, from 2021, I have to pay $1,000 every month until I finish paying.
I would like to thank lawyer Eugene Thuraisingam and his colleagues for helping me reach this settlement. I am very grateful to them.
These 2 years since I was sued hasn’t been easy. There have been ups and downs.
I am just glad that it started a conversation on the CPF and some enhancements were made to the CPF.
But I have learnt some lessons as well. I should have been careful with how I say things. I am thankful to have reached the settlement with the prime minister.
I hope to have a fresh start. I have been looking for a job and doing freelance photography. I hope to be able to find a job and make use of my work experience and skills in an area that I could make good use of. I miss contributing effectively to make positive change.
After the last election, a choice was made. I hope that this will be one that will put the country in the right direction. People choose what they are ready for.
Finally, I would like to thank everyone who have supported me over these years. Thank you for believing in me. I did what I could. And I am glad that somehow, we were able to make a difference.
Also, I would like to thank my parents and my family. I wouldn’t have been able to get through this without them. At a time where I had even lost friends, they have been an unwavering pillar of support.
I hope this marks an end to a chapter and hope that we can move on from here.
If you would like to help to defray the costs, you can also fund raise to the bank account at POSB Savings Bank Account 130-23068-7 (Ngerng Yi Ling). 🙂
Thank you once again.Follow us on Social Media
