POFMA

The Protection from Online Falsehoods and Manipulation Act (POFMA) is a statute of the Singapore Parliament that enables the government to curb the spread of fake news or misinformation. Under this law, the authorities can respond to fake news and misinformation by enforcing links to fact-checking statements, censorships and criminal charges. This law was invoked recently in response to the claims about the coronavirus variant from Singapore.
