CSJ film "objectionable under Films Act"

Dear Martyn,

As requested, this is what happened.

On Friday March 11, Philip (Cheah) was asked to meet the censors at 4.30pm. At the MICA office, he was told that SINGAPORE REBEL was objectionable under the Films Act pertaining to political party videos. He was "advised" to inform you to withdraw your film whereby the matter would be dropped, failing which, the full extent of the law would apply.

Yours sincerely,
Lesley Ho
