Blogger Roy Ngerng has agreed to Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong's demand to remove four blog posts and a Youtube video by 5pm on Monday.

He however requested that the Monday 5pm deadline to write in with an offer of damages and costs be extended to Wednesday 5pm instead.

Mr Lee, on the basis that Mr Ngerng agreed in his lawyer's letter to take the posts and video down and to not put up similar ones, has allowed the extension.

On Monday morning, PM Lee's lawyer Senior Counsel Davinder Singh had asked Mr Ngerng to take down four posts or face aggravated damages.
