Correction

Our piece ‘Lee Suet Fern sues Tan over $35K released to Shearman’ on page 5 of the 24 February issue contained certain inaccuracies. In particular, it implied that the Wong Partnership (and in particular Mr Wong Meng Meng) and its lawyers Tan Rajah & Cheah had an “axe to grind” over the outcome of an arbitration between themselves and Lee, and therefore acted improperly in their subsequent dealings with her. We accept that this is untrue. We also acknowledge that Tan released more than $35K to Shearman & Sterling several months before any outcome of the arbitration between the Wong Partnership and Lee. We wish to apologise for any embarrassment caused.
