Blogger to repay $150,000 in damages in monthly payouts of $50, after PM Lee turns 65

Posted on 14 March 2016

Compensation for damages to be settled according to how CPF functions.


A new compensation scheme has been worked out for the blogger who has been successfully sued by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong for writing lengthy blog posts.

Another self-designated lawyer, who is not M Ravi, has worked out a payment scheme for the blogger to make compensation.

The lawyer, Kong Chee Kim, said: “Since Roy Ngerng has been ordered to pay $150,000 in damages, he has worked out a method to disburse the sum as monthly payouts of $50.”

“And this monthly payout will only start when PM Lee hits 65 years old, which is in two years’ time in 2017.”

“In the meantime, the blogger will pay an interest rate that is slightly lower than the annual inflation rate per year for holding on to the $150,000 sum until 2017.”

“But the blogger must also ensure that he is always holding on to $150,000 minimum sum and any payout will only be possible, if it is above this sum.”

“And when PM Lee hits 65, the age limit could be changed to 67.”
