MediaCorp producer lodges police report against M Ravi for ‘threatening’ her a week ago
Posted by temasektimes on July 20, 2012
Prominent Human Rights lawyer M Ravi who won much public sympathy when a Law Society member divulged his medical condition in High Court in a desperate attempt to disqualify him from practicing law found himself in trouble again.
According to the state media, a Tamil current affairs producer at MediaCorp has filed a police report Mr Ravi for verbally abusing her during an interview with him.
Ms Vicneswary d/o Subramaniam alleged that this happened on 13 July. She claimed that while interviewing Mr Ravi at his office, he became extremely agitated and aggressive and shouted at her, using vulgarities.
For some strange reasons, Ms Vicneswary only lodged a police report ONE WEEK later after the fiasco in High Court.
MediaCorp is the only broadcasting station in Singapore and is wholly owned by Temasek Holdings, a Singapore sovereign wealth fund headed by Ho Ching, the wife of Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.
The Singapore media is ranked 150th in the world in terms of press freedom by U.S NGO Freedom House this year.
