Recently Mr Soh Rui Yong, a long distance runner, has sued the Singapore Athletics (SA) and its executive director Syed Abdul Malik Aljunied, alleging defamation.

The cases

arose last month over Mr Soh being rejected from Team Singapore for the South-east Asian (SEA) Games in the Philippines, and defamatory comments allegedly made by SA in the wake of the decision.

Following that, Mr Soh threatened to sue SA’s executive director Syed Abdul Malik Aljunied for making allegedly defamatory comments on social media and filed a defamation writ against him.

Sounds like he behaves like he’s like a PAP millionaire minister: sue and sue.

Must be really rich to afford lawyers and be prepared to pay other side damages and legal costs if he loses. Didn’t realise our athletes are that well paid. Or maybe he juz stupid and so are his lawyers who might end up working for free. Sad.
