SDP’s website hacked into at a crucial time

The Singapore Democrats’ website has been hacked into and defaced. This comes on the eve of the sentencing of Mr Gandhi Ambalam, Dr Chee Soon Juan and Mr Yap Keng Ho.

The three men have been charged with speaking in public without a valid permit when they were selling the SDP’s newspaper, The New Democrat, on 22 Apr 06.

The problem has been resolved and effort is being made to find out exactly what happened. Obviously, there are people who do not want Singaporeans to read about what is going to take place over the coming days vis-a-vis the trial and its aftermath.

The SDP will try its best to prevent hackers from destroying the website again. We apologise for the inconvenience caused.

There will be more updates on the trial and other matters later today.
