On 8 October, Alex Tan editor of the popular anti-PAP website, States Times Review announced via Facebook that States Times Review would be “voluntarily shutting down” in anticipation of the new fake news laws that are set to be introduced next year.
Following recent political development in Singapore, the dictatorship is likely to take down States Times Review on false charges of propagating fake news and foreign funding.
As such, States Times Review will shut down voluntarily by today (Oct 8) ending its 51 months of operations as a news media.
