If the Government wrongly determines that a piece of content is false, and the courts overturn its decision, it will be subject to costs and consequences, Senior Minister of State for Law and Health Edwin Tong said yesterday.
Mr Tong’s comments come amid concern from some over the broad powers the Government would get in determining what is false under the Protection from Online Falsehoods and Manipulation Bill, tabled in Parliament on Monday.
The forum was organised by SMU with Nanyang Technological University’s S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies and Singapore Press Holdings (SPH).
