NKF: Controversially ahead of its time, Article Published


People 27 Comments

Straits Times published an editorial “NKF: Controversially ahead of its time?” written by senior correspondent Susan Long. This article became the subject of the dispute, and eventually the lawsuit that led to the scandal. Durai and NKF challenged the first six lines of the article, which claimed that a retired contractor (who declined to be named, for fear of being sued) had ‘lost it’ when he was asked to install “a glass-panelled shower, a pricey German toilet bowl and a (S$1,000) gold-plated tap” in Durai’s office. NKF shortly issued a letter of demand for an apology, retraction, and payment of damages from the paper’s publisher, Singapore Press Holdings (SPH), within 24 hours. Four days after the article’s publication, NKF and Durai served a writ on Long and SPH for defamation, demanding S$3.24 million in damages.  The trail was set on the 11 July 2005.
