A Singapore civil servant was yesterday fined but escaped jail for leaking confidential information to a journalist, a prosecution that a rights group described as an attempt to spread a “culture of fear”.  Government housing agency employee Ng Han Yuan was fined for passing details about a still confidential public housing resale portal to Janice Tai of the Straits Times daily.
