According to a press release by the Singapore Police today (May 5th), an 18-year-old teenager girl and 53-year-old elderly man were arrested for sending dictator Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and 3 other ministers hell notes and defamatory letters.
The Singapore Police claimed that the letters were “threatening” but did not disclose what “threats” were made.
The letters sent between April 27th and May 4th were written in English and signed off by under the name of the chairman of the Sungei Road Flea Market Association. The content of the letter are never made known to the public. The Singapore Police subsequently traced the letters back to the two and conducted a raid at their homes.
The state media Straits Times published the article with a warning that “criminal intimidation” warrants a 2 years’ jail.
There has been an increase of political crimes due to brewing anger against the ruling party PAP for inflating cost of living and new policies worsening the quality of life among the populace.
