FICA's Wide Reach

After 10 hours of debate on Monday in the Singaporean parliament, a controversial law aimed at countering foreign interference in domestic affairs was passed. Dubbed the Foreign Interference (Countermeasures) Act aka (FICA), the law allows authorities to order social media sites and Internet providers to disclose user information or block content that they deem hostile. James Gomez, Director of Asia Centre tells us the implications of such a law.
