Press Release 12 May 2022

ISSUANCE OF CORRECTION DIRECTION UNDER THE PROTECTION FROM ONLINE FALSEHOODS AND MANIPULATION ACT REGARDING FALSEHOOD ABOUT WOMAN WHO CLAIMED TO HAVE NO ONE TO TURN TO FOR URGENT FINANCIAL HELP

The Minister for Social and Family Development has instructed the POFMA Office to issue a Correction Direction  (CD) to correct a Facebook post made by Gilbert Goh on 24 April 2022. Goh will be required to carry a correction notice alongside his post. 

Correction and clarification regarding falsehood posted by Gilbert Goh 

On 24 April 2022, Goh published on Facebook an appeal he purportedly received from “A”, who claimed that there is “no one [she] can turn to” for help and that she needed urgent financial assistance for herself and her partner, as well as adult diapers, transportation, and food. Goh’s post gave the impression that “A” and her partner have not received any assistance from the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) and other agencies. This is false.
