SINGAPORE: Sarawak Report editor Clare Rewcastle-Brown was “briefly detained” in Singapore on Saturday, according to Sarawak Report Facebook page.
According to the page, Rewcastle-Brown was detained at 1am after her book launch here.
“Turns out ‘someone’ put her on the blacklist in 2016 but the Singapore authorities were baffled about why she had been placed on the list.
“After clarifying her involvement in the 1MDB expose they shook her hand and she was free to go. They suggested she raise the problem of the ‘mystery blacklisting’ with the authorities,” said Sarawak Report.
British investigative journalist Rewcastle Brown was the one who exposed the 1MDB or 1Malaysia Development Berhad scandal.
Her book, also called Sarawak Report, details her experiences on exposing the scandal. – Bernama
