SINGAPORE - The police are investigating a Facebook user who claimed to have flagged social media posts made by Workers' Party candidate Raeesah Khan.

In response to media queries on Tuesday, the police confirmed that police reports have been made against an individual using the Facebook moniker "Abdul Malik Mohammed Ghazali".

In a Facebook post circulated on Sunday, the netizen claimed to be "One of the first to leak out and viral screenshots" of Ms Khan's social media accounts.

Another police report was made over a separate post where in the context of a news article on the City Harvest Church ruling, Ms Khan was alleged to have commented that Singapore jailed minorities mercilessly, harassed mosque leaders but let "Corrupt church leaders who stole $50 million" walk free.

At a press conference on Sunday night, shortly after news broke of the police reports, Ms Khan said: "My remarks were insensitive, and I regret making them. I feel really passionate about minority issues regardless of race, and in my passion I made improper remarks, and I have to be accountable for them. I will fully cooperate in any police investigations."
