TRS editors were handed the summons while walking to a pre-trial conference


Today (18 May), the couple behind sociopolitical website The Real Singapore (TRS), Yang Kaiheng and Ai Takagi, were heading to a pre-trial conference, when they were served justice by Singapore Press Holdings (SPH).

Yang and Takagi are currently in the middle of dealing with the consequences of seven seditious articles, and now have another suit to contend with.
