Defamation Funds Update 19

Today, on this date 2 years ago, I received the demand letter from the prime minister to sue me – 10 days after my birthday.

The prime minister sued me for an article that I had written on the Central Provident Fund (CPF) pension funds of Singaporeans. I have to pay the prime minister S$180,000.

This is the latest update on the funds raised for the defamation suit with the Singapore prime minister.

As of the last update, S$10 was raised via my POSB bank account (130-23068-7 Ngerng Yi Ling).

A man gave S$100 on my birthday on May 9 and sent this note – thank you, sir!

Two days ago, a man also visited my dad’s stall and gave S$300. The man ate two plates of black and white carrot cake. Thank you for this, my friend.

My dad sells carrot cake in Ang Mo Kio at Block 107 in Ang Mo Kio. He is opened on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from about 4pm to about 11pm/midnight.

Thank You for Your Support for the Fund Raising

As of today, $$31,146.31 has been raised. I still have to pay another S$149,800 to the prime minister.

If you would also like to help to defray the costs and damages, you can also fund raise to the bank account at POSB Savings Bank Account 130-23068-7 (Ngerng Yi Ling) or PayPal at royngerng@gmail.com. Thank you.

The funds coming in have slowed down. For transparency, I will continue to update on the funds raised and used, on this blog.

I have also attached my LinkedIn profile here. I was fired after I was sued – the hospital that I worked at and the Singapore Ministry of Health sent out press releases to support the firing, with the hospital alluding to the defamation suit.

I am looking for a job, scholarship or fellowship. Please contact me on my LinkedIn or at royngerng@gmail.com if there are any opportunity.

*****

Background: In 2014, I was sued by the Singapore prime minister for defamation. The judge ruled in a summary judgment that I have defamed the prime minister. I have apologised to the prime minister. I was ordered to pay damages of S$150,000 to him. In an agreement reached with the prime minister, I am to pay an additional S$30,000 in costs. In total, including the previous payment that I have made to the costs of the summary judgment (S$29,000) and application for the Queen’s Counsel (S$6,000), I would have paid/will pay S$215,000. 

I have paid the first tranche of S$30,000 (of the S$180,000) to the prime minister in March 2016. From April 1, 2016, for the next 5 years, I have to pay $100 every month. Thereafter, from 2021, I have to pay $1,000 every month until I finish paying.

You can read the previous updates here: [One] [Two] [Three] [Four] [Five] [Six] [Seven] [Eight] [Nine] [Ten] [Eleven] [Twelve] [Thirteen] [Fourteen] [Fifteen] [Sixteen] [Seventeen] [Eighteen].I would also like to thank the International Court of Justice (ICJ) and Safenet for releasing statements in support of me, as well as iMediaEthicsHong Kong Free Press and Norway’s NRK (here and here) for interviewing me.

You can also read a previous update on the funds raised in 2014 and its usage. Thank you to The Straits Times and Mothership.sg for reporting on the fund raising. There were inaccurate online rumours spread that the funds were used to pay overseas trips. This is untrue. You can read more about these in the update here.

  2. Huh?

    You are not making an effort to work to pay the PM, and just relying on donations? Wtf are you doing?

    Instead of saying “The prime minister sued me for an article that I had written on the Central Provident Fund (CPF) pension funds of Singaporeans. I have to pay the prime minister S$180,000.”, why don’t you tell the truth that “I am found guilty of defaming the prime minister and I have to pay .. ” ?

    As usual, Roy, you are a liar forever playing with words to stoke emotions. If this is the way to go, sorry to say, you will forever reap what you have reaped till date, shame, failure and loser.

    Seriously, grow up.

    Hmm.. as your ex colleague in TTSH, you were always malingering and doing your own stuff during office hours. You were served warning letters for all these, but why didn’t you make all these public? TTSH did not publish those letters to save you the embarrassment, I suppose you need to know when to stop barking.

    Hi Roy, no one can make you give up the fight unless you allow them too. Similarly, no one can discourage you unless you allow them to. You have started something good here and spoke for many of us. And that you have raised 30K till now, that really meant something. Please continue to do what you do, and come up with creative ways of tackling this situation.. like more different channels of crowdfunding, publishing your own book, and I’m sure that so long you keep trying, help will come your way.

    If you are going to step into the waters, don’t tip toe on the water. Make a splash like Amos. After all, they want to me known as murderers.

  7. The Reality

    Roy, I saw the article about the anti-pink dot comment on atrocities towards gays. Just so you’d know, Bryan Lim is not only a performance consultant. He was an ex-MOE teacher who taught Physics for 4 years before moving on to work at Singapore Discovery Center and then he’s present job. He is a self-proclaimed staunch evangelical who was with a new age church and left claiming no affiliation with any organized institution but remains staunchly Christian in his way. He was from Victoria Junior College and SJI. He had a falling out with his family, in particular his father over his conversion and his condemning his Taoist’s father practices.

    Can’t believe MOE actually hired him to teach character and citizenship education.
