The POFMA office has issued correction directions to local activist Gilbert Goh and alternative news website The Independent Singapore. The Ministry of National Development (MND) said false statements by Mr Goh and the website gave the impression that HDB had deprived a needy family of public rental housing because they could not pay for it. Mr Goh had claimed on Facebook that a single mother and her six children had been evicted. The MND said the articles are entirely false — the family did not have any overdue rent. The tenancy was terminated and the woman’s husband had returned the keys to HDB. The family had also bought a new flat and has since moved in.
