Minister Lui: Undesirable sites are blocked “symbolically”

“Singapore–Responding to questions from Member of Parliament Cynthia Phua (Aljunied GRC) on whether the ministry could block pornographic sites, and ask internet service providers (ISPs) to provide free blocking services, Mr Lui Tuck Yew said in Parliment that “it is impossible for Singapore to block all undesirable sites”.

But he added that where necessary, the Government will block some pornographic and other undesirable sites, especially those that are more prominent.

Mr Lui said that ISPs are required to block 100 sites as ‘a symbolic statement of our community’s stand on harmful and undesirable content on the Internet’. ISPs will also be required to actively market their Internet filtering services to consumers when they purchase or renew their Internet subscriptions.”

TOC, gazetted

“The Government has sent shock waves across Singapore by ordering The Online Citizen, one of the country’s most popular socio-political websites, to be gazetted as a political organization. This gazetting means that The Online Citizen (TOC) will not be able to use any of its new media platforms during the upcoming General Elections to voice its support for any political party or personalities, according to the TOC website.”
