Blogger Roy Ngerng says his sacking by his employer, Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH), is politically motivated.

In a Facebook post on Tuesday evening, Mr Ngerng said: "I had wanted to give my employers the benefit of the doubt, but the truth of the matter is that the sacking is politically motivated."

TTSH had cited two grounds for dismissal in a statement earlier in the afternoon. It said Mr Ngerng, 33, had misused working time, hospital computers and facilities for "personal pursuits", while his conduct had been "incompatible with the values and standards expected of employees".

Mr Ngerng also said he has been under "immense pressure at work" over the past few weeks, but he has also contributed immensely at work.
