SINGAPORE - Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has responded to blogger Roy Ngerng's request for more details to support Mr Lee's demand for aggravated damages.

The answers, given to the 33-year-old on Wednesday, were released to the media on Friday.

Mr Ngerng, who is being sued for defamation after alleging Mr Lee had criminally misappropriated Central Provident Fund savings, had last week (June18) asked for more information for some points in Mr Lee's statement of claim.

In the statement of claim filed on May 29, Mr Lee's lawyer, Senior Counsel Davinder Singh, listed nine reasons that entitled the Prime Minister to recover aggravated damages.
