Posted on 27 September 2013

This case proves that the Internet is not only good for porn.


Singaporeans from all walks of life who practise varying levels of interaction online have applauded netizens for their civic-mindedness.

This after netizens helped highlight the case where a National Parks Board (NParks) assistant director was suspected of biasing the procurement of 26 Brompton bicycles, which led to an investigation by the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB) last year.

The Brompton bike saga first surfaced on a popular local forum.

The case attracted a lot of attention on the Internet that led to the crowdsourcing of vigilantism.

Self-styled political pundit, Eric de Yaya, said: “This case goes to show that the Internet is not only good for sharing porn. It can be used to demand justice.”
