Duo behind The Real Singapore arrested for sedition
On the left, Mr Robin Yang walking out of the Police Cantonment Complex yesterday. On the right, Miss Ai Takagi after going to the police yesterday. She is the administrator of TRS.

Two of the three people behind The Real Singapore (TRS), a sociopolitical website, have been arrested.

This follows a Feb 4 article where the duo are said to have embellished an article posted by a witness of the Thaipusam incident. The TRS article had claimed a Philippine family had sparked an exchange which led to three Singaporean men being arrested on Feb 3.

But no such family was involved. And the original article's writer also denied the involvement of a family.
