Leong Sze Hian clarifies inaccurate report by a ‘certain State media’

Veteran blogger Leong Sze Hian has responded to the reporting by a ‘certain State media’ on the legal proceedings brought against him by PM Lee Hsien Loong. [ LINK ]

In a Facebook post which was made today (5th Dec), Mr Leong denied that he had deliberately shared the offending post to damage PM Lee’s reputation and ticked off a ‘”certain State media” for misrepresentation of the facts:

.

.

In an earlier statement to “This Week in Asia”, Mr Leong said that he was “bewildered” by the legal proceedings that have been initiated against him:

For legal reasons, I am unable to comment on my case. In my defence, I can say that this is a fight not between me and the prime minister, but between the people and him for freedom of expression, transparency and democracy. I am bewildered as to why he is suing me for defamation.

Meanwhile, PM Lee has commence legal proceedings against Mr Leong for defamation. A Writ of Summons was delivered to Mr Leong yesterday (5th December).

TRE understands from reliable sources that Mr Leong has categorically denied the accusations and intends to contest the lawsuit.

    After all you have done for them – look how the ballsless 70% backstab you by voting for the clowns – knowing full well they will come after you.

    Are you not entertained?

    So the PM totally reneged on his policy for a light touch on the Internat.
    The civil pursuit bothers me. His own brother accused him of far more serious allegations but nothing but now he goes after Leong?
    I really hope that PM gets slapped down. I know wishful thinking but still.

    All they are after is money so the slightest thing that you said or do they will take you to court for defamation but if they do it to others they are acting correctly within the law.

    DESPERATION on the part of PM.
    Spending all his waking hours fixing bloggers and the opposition parties.
    Mr Leong only shared the article not wrote it.
    But its enough for this small minded PM to go ape!
    The mind of an unstable individual & his henchman DS.
    How do they sleep at night ? I guess $$$$mils is the balm to everything for them .
    Why doesnt he go after that malaysian blogger who wrote the article?

  • crowd funding:

    Mr Leong, we are jobless old folks from aljunied.

    But if you do crowd funding to fight the pap clown, we stand ready with S$100 immediate transfer. no questions asked. nothing needed in return. just fight the lying power abusing pap clown.

    After all, pap clown abuses power as told to the world by his own blood brother Mr Lee Hsien Yang and his own blood sister Dr Lee Wei Ling.

    We believer this abuse of power must stop. Hanky Panky with najib everyone did guessed. only after GE14 did pap clown distance himself from najib.

    Since pap clown did not sue Mr Lee Hisen Yang and Dr Lee Wei Ling, the double standard in suing you is for all Singaporeans, whether 70% sheep or 30% enlightened, to see.

    LSH has been their marked man ever since his economic trashing articles where Leong is an expert in. He pointed out all their faults with facts and hitting them with harsh questions that they don’t know how to answer.

    They are just waiting for an opportunity like this to silence him forever just like what they did to RN. Simply a cowardice act.

    Sinkies keep voting them will always and deserved to be bullied by them.

    Just let the foreigners thrash them. Malaysian vs ‘Malaysian’ over the JB airspace & seaport issues.

  • Privilege:

    Mai Kia Mai Kia,

    You have the “privilege of expression” by sharing a publication with others that you deemed may be of importance to fellow sinkies. This is in the defame law. Furthermore you have complied with authority upon being informed. Small case, small case.

    Just remember, all these and whatever come to you, can be undone, reverse and repaid. Just make it as short as possible.

  • My Freedom:

    I find it very disturbing. Talking about Total Defense. Imagine the country being attack and the PM and institution gun own man. What I mean to say is, I expect the PM to lead by example to defend his own name quickly and punish and sue the Original “Alien” Offender rather than using it against own people just because someone may not like him. I expect him to clear his name quickly so that we do not need to second guess or discuss whether the news is real or fake. He should blame his own department like MDA for not acting fast enough to stop the original posting and advice Singaporeans publicly not to post the fake news or discuss it around because he don’t like it.

    Why am I saying this. Because to gossip is human. People will have a tendency to communicate, sharing posting around with friends seeking to ask or clarifies something important to them. This cannot be deemed as malice or something wrong. Furthermore, without our discussion and sharing around, how will his name be defamed or he claim to have suffered. I mean, he cannot be die so many times right or not, discuss one time, die one time, discuss 2 times died two times. I mean, hey, we are just the public audience, right or not.?

    I do not know LSH in person. I just want my freedom to seek the truths by asking and communicating freely around including sharing public news without any worries or ever feeling intimidated.

    I am a law abiding citizen…. but I still want my freedom.

    Dear Leong,

    Just look at JBJ. He walk with the people and stand up to fight for the people.

    See how JBJ end. Bankrupted and died a destitute.

    <a href="#comment-1823709" rel="nofollow"Leong, Standing up and fight for the people is a big big big mistake for you.

    Have you not realize that opposition supporters are largely made up of lazy and unmotivated whiners and leechers ?

    Yes, I dare say it out loud, opposition supporters are mere whiners and leechers.

    Opposition supporters are greedy jerk that just want to take advantage of others hard work and piggy ride on the back of others to enjoy the fruits of other people hard work.

    No one here can prove me wrong….hahahaha
