A terse notice from Channel News Asia has the blogosphere abuzz:

Police arrest former Singaporean for insulting public servant

The public servant in question is Belinda Ang, the judge at the Lee Kuan Yew defamation trial, and the “former Singaporean” is Gopalan Nair, a former Workers Party member who is now a US citizen and has been making a series of increasingly incendiary comments on his blog Singapore Dissident, especially after Lee stated that he would sue any bloggers who defame him. To date, Gopalan has not been sued; he has, however, been arrested without bail.
