Singapore apologises to Malaysia for having a “minister mentor”

MM Lee was fined $2000 today for violating Section 13B of the Miscellaneous Offences Act. He was also forced to send a written apology to Malaysia for saying that ethnic Chinese there are “systematically marginalised”. A Singapore court found that his words were insulting to Malaysians and thus a violation of the Miscellaneous Offences Act, section 13B of the Penal Code:

(1)(a) Any person who in a public place or in a private place uses threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour…shall be guilty of an offence and shall be liable on conviction to a fine not exceeding $2,000.

As MM Lee is now an ex-offender, the government of Singapore has officially apologised to Malaysia for allowing him to say anything.
