I’m writing on behalf of The Straits Times about a post in your site  which wrongly attributed remarks to us https://theindependent.sg.sg/little-india-riots-afterthoughts/ 
“The  government must take a serious look at how foreign workers are treated in  Singapore. Over the years, they have been a steady stream of reports that  foreign workers in Singapore are being exploited by their employers, such as  being made to work overtime and without adequate reimbursement, having their  salaries withheld, or subject to other unreasonable  demands. –  sgpolitics.net, a Straits Times-run website for political  news.
ST’s  political site is www.singapolitics.sg and the post didn’t appear in it.
