TOC Statement on Photo Misuse

"The photo you see below, taken by TOC photographer Chan Zhijian Jeremy, was reproduced without credit on Occupy Singapore's Facebook page. This photo was used to create the impression that the PAP’s Mr Desmond Choo was refusing to shake the hand of the WP’s Mr Png Eng Huat. This was done with no reference to a separate photo, which shows Mr Choo shaking Mr Png’s hand. 

While TOC’s Jeremy Chan was unable to capture the moment when Mr Choo shook Mr Png’s hand, we regret that our photograph was used to create the incorrect impression that the handshake never happened.

The second photo was originally reproduced on Mr Brown's website, and TOC is currently attempting to verify who it belongs to for crediting purposes.
