A technician was fined S$5,000 (RM12,800) for sending a false message through Facebook that three police officers and two civil defence officers died in the Little India riot.
Desmond Lum Mun Hui, 28, pleaded guilty to transmitting a message which he knew to be fabricated through Facebook on Dec 9 last year, a day after the riot.
He posted the comment: “Yesterday riot cause 3 spf and 2 cd dead.. all nsf.. haiz.. sg..’’ from his home in Jurong West Street 42.
The term “spf’’ referred to the Singapore Police Force and “cd’’, Singapore Civil Defence Force.
Lum then substantiated his initial post by stating, “Yup.. not publish news’’, and “My fren on duty that night’’. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
