Singapore introduces Bill to fight fake news; Critics fear repression

Singapore submitted wide-ranging fake news legislation in parliament on Monday. The new bill has stoked fears from internet firms and human rights groups that it may give the government too much power and hinder freedom of speech. The law would require social media sites to carry warnings on posts the government deems false and remove comments against ’public interest’.
