SNA - TR Emeritus to apologize to PM Lee, may reveal writer's details: Richard Wan

SINGAPORE — Singapore's prime minister has demanded an apology from a political website for a post his lawyer said alleged nepotism in the appointment of the premier's wife as head of a state-linked firm. In a letter sent Sunday to editors of the website Temasek Review Emeritus, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong's lawyer, Davinder Singh, described the posting as defamatory and without basis. Richard Wan, one of the website's editors, said they will release an apology later Monday. "We will be apologising and will comply with all the demands 100 percent," Wan told AFP. "We have not decided yet whether we will reveal the identity of the writer. The editors are still deciding on that."
