FEER banned in Singapore

The Hong Kong based Far Eastern Economic Review (FEER) has lost its permit to sell and distribute its publication in Singapore because it did not meet some technical requirements, according to Singapore officials. However, the loss of this privilege is more likely related to the lawsuit filed against the magazine by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and his father Lee Kuan Yew, a long time ruler of the country, who have sued for defamation.
