Taking umbrage at Facebook’s supposed attempt to hinder Leong Sze Hian’s fund-raising efforts

I take umbrage at the revelation that Facebook had supposedly tried to hinder Mr Leong Sze Hian’s fund-raising efforts, by banning his ability to share his Facebook postings.

It was revealed by Ms Teo Soh Lung that on or about the day that Hsien Loong’s lawyer issued an ultimatum to Mr Leong to pay the court-awarded costs, Facebook banned Mr Leong’s ability to share postings and his articles.

This of course indirectly resulted in Mr Leong not being able to effectively appeal for funding on his own and had it not been for the various social media like TOC and TRE, and the tireless efforts of supporters like Ms Teo, Mr Leong may not have been able to achieve his target funding to pay off Hsien Loong.

I did not read anywhere that Facebook had offered any official reason for the ban and I wonder why is Facebook taking it upon themselves to get involved in a purely civil case.

1. Was there a court order stipulating that Mr Leong should not be raising funds to pay off Hsien loong?

2. Was there a letter from Hsien Loong’s lawyer to Facebook asking for the ban?

3. Was there a call or an email from some government departments compelling Facebook to initiate the ban?

4. Was fund-raising a breach of Facebook’s TOS and AUP?

5. Was there a staff at Facebook (supporter of PAP) who took it upon himself to make things difficult for Mr Leong?

Even though the dust has settled on this Leong versus Lee episode, I feel that Facebook should come clean and be transparent on this incident as such actions may in future, affect others who may be in the same predicament as Mr Leong, since I do not envisage that the “sue till your pants drop” culture will go away anytime soon.

What do you think?

  • I wouldn’t blame FaceBook.

    I heard that one of their founders and their office is in Sinkieland, what do you expect them to do if they did receive a phone call or email from some bigshot or some gahment agencies?

    FaceBook also afraid of kenna ‘Davindered’, do bo?

  • Dr Tan Tai Wei:

    If so, the sort of behind-the-scene coordination (couldn’t be merely coincidence? Short notice of deadline for payment wasn’t public? Mind telepathy between PM, his lawyer and Facebook?) wouldn’t enhance the trust government solicits of Singaporeans. Government instructions should be open and defensible by law, and not to have intended effect seem ‘act of God’.

    TR Techie: Dictatorships can do this phone call or straight organise big team to raid the office, isnt it? Any different in China? Apple daily has been raided so many times and Jimmy Lai is jailed.

    So again, we should allow democracy to grow so that dictators cant suka suka do anything they dont like.

  • Facebook purported Oversight Board can only dare to do Trump in its home ground lar, because they know Trump dare not and powerless to take Facebook to task.

    Their Oversight Board knows very well that in Sinkieland, they guai lan only one result, they get kicked out of Sinkieland or they kenna jialut jialut.

    If I remember correctly, someone had released an official stats on the number of cases FaceBook had worked with the gahment and released information willingly to the police, that number was high.

    So FaceBook can BS and claim that they follow law back in their home turf, but in Sinkieland, they know that it is not about the law, it is what the LEEders want, period.

    You think their Oversight Board stoopid meh?

  • Breaking news:

    Aiya, Facebook lost face in their motherland. It got kicked out of the biggest populated nation. So must kowtowed to the land, which pledges neutrality but really bananas of all degrees of rotting cladded in funeral white, hoping to get a bit of the faking lying tech. Young arogant bastards r easy to pat than raging old man burning in hell.

    Anyway lao lee has spoken. DHS, not listening n allowing his supergreed gorilla to scum around, will soon have to face the rage of the man wih his belt ready to strike.

    Covid has exposed the nfi team in SIN. Lao Lee must be reging mad in the nether world at the humiliation that the malaysians n Indonesian r showing better brians than the SBs he left behind.

    So, .Better watch it, lyncher indianee twisting the laws to accomodate the chief scum stupidity to break obvious laws;, humkachan for leaking his old boss n mentor’s incapability to substain pap without creating crisis; cancer of thdedly kind but ies exposed as the SB still urchin around;
    dhs n dhw for exposing not only daftness but the super greeds.lthat shame n expose the humiliation of bootlicking cootlicking brownosing disgrace among the SIN spineless general n SBs.

    FB no choice ?? FB got to listen to white idiots orelse kena owned (or banned how ??) ??? at least, once in a while, FB must give face to white idiots and continue to be in existence and people still get to know so much more (through FB) than 151th msm standard ???

    it is the daft sinkies who must be able to see / understand the predicament that certain people or organizations (“handicapped” by the white monkey idiots) in sinkie land are operating with ???

  • Soccerbetting2:

    Anybody remember that ST post that facebook is setting base in super expensive Singapore in progress .Why FB choose Singspore to set base when Malaysia,Vietnam,Thailand,…are much cheaper places to setup base also fon’t select them ? Base is long term permanent ,cheaper the better .Lack of fast wifi network can be built up at other countries ,so why choose Singapore ? Obvious possible guess reason is those e**l b**** backside e**l women wing forces from the SPH may already acquire a major control of share of FB behind the scene,who knows ?
