BLOGGER Roy Ngerng (pic) has on his blog and in a letter to Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s lawyer apologised to Lee for a May 15 post alleging CPF Funds were misappropriated.
He is also appealing against Lee’s demand for damages.
In a post yesterday morning, Ngerng said he admitted and acknowledged that the allegation was false and “completely without foundation”.
“I unreservedly apologise to Lee Hsien Loong for the distress and embarrassment caused to him by this allegation,” he added.
A public apology was one of the things Lee had asked for in a letter of demand sent on Sunday. He also asked that the post alleging the misappropriation of CPF funds be taken down immediately and that Ngerng pay for his legal costs and compensate him for damages.
Ngerng took the post down on Monday night and also removed links to the post on his two Facebook pages.
A letter sent by Ngerng’s lawyer M. Ravi yesterday morning to Lee’s lawyer Davinder Singh stated that Ngerng, a healthcare worker, earns
a modest income.
The letter added that Ngerng welcomed a chance to have an open discussion with Lee on the CPF issue.
On Wednesday, Ngerng announced he had applied to be a Nominated MP and hoped to discuss national issues such as CPF and education in Parliament. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
