Blogger Alex Au has agreed to take down the offending blog post and comments, as well as put up an apology to Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.
Responding to media queries on Friday, he confirmed that he received a letter of demand from Senior Counsel Davinder Singh, who is representing PM Lee. The letter had said that parts of a blog post he wrote on the deal between PAP town councils and the firm Action Information Management (Aim), together with 21 comments from readers, had defamed the Prime Minister.

He added though that the episode should "not distract from the issue of the sale of town council software to Action Information Management".
