Raymond Ng, the husband of anti-vaccination personality Iris Koh, hosted an online cryptocurrency course on Thursday evening (February 24) titled “Is our money safe from the government? »
Koh is currently facing two charges. One is for conspiring with a doctor to defraud the Ministry of Health by certifying that certain people had received Sinopharm vaccines when they had not, and the other for preventing a police inspector to discharge his duties. She reportedly tore up a printed copy of her statement on January 25 at the police cantonment complex.
On February 8, she launched a $100,000 fundraising campaign to help pay for her legal costs. and could have raised this amount in less than two weeks.
On February 23, she announced that she was giving away her husband’s cryptocurrency course for free to all of her donors as a sign of gratitude for their support.
The course, she wrote in a post on Healing the Divide’s Telegram channel, was worth $200, but she gave it to her followers “no matter how much you gave to the fund, even $2.40.”
She then wrote: ‘We want everyone to keep their money safe from government control. We believe that until we can protect our money, we can’t truly have freedom.
Last month, the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) warned that cryptocurrency trading is risky and not suitable for the public, causing a shutdown of crypto ATMs in the country.
“The Monetary authority of Singapore (MAS) has consistently warned the public that trading in digital payment tokens (“DPT”) or commonly known as cryptocurrencies) is very risky and not suitable for the general public. The public should not be encouraged to engage in the trade of TPDs),” MAS said on January 17.

In another Telegram post, Mr Ng wrote that there had been a lot of questions about his wife’s fundraising.
“The fact is that around SGD 100,000 was handed over to Iris for her criminal prosecution.
So now the question is how to store it.
The answer, the couple seems to believe, lies in the cryptocurrency route.

And while the money could be placed in a bank account, “we don’t know if due process would be ignored to freeze the money and we can’t use it,” he added.
What prompted the course to appear to be recent events in Canada involving anti-vaxxers as well.
Mr. Ng had written in a February 22 article that Canada had frozen the accounts of truckers who joined the large-scale and disruptive protests in Ottawa against Covid-19 vaccines “while they have not yet been recognized. guilty of no crime”.
“Are you worried about other governments doing the same thing to their own citizens – seizing their financial assets without due process?…
How can you use blockchain to secure your financial and economic well-being?
Would the government extend its control to other areas of our lives? How to limit our access to banking services? »
But here’s a fact check for the anti-vaxxer couple and their supporters. The reports say Canada has begun lifting the freezing of protesters’ bank accounts last Monday, February 21.
And while Heal the gap claims to be made up of ‘smart vaxxers’, the Department of Health has issued public warnings about the group since November last year.
The ministry said the group “takes an anti-vaccination stance and claims to warn people of the dangers of vaccination”, calling on them to lies about covid-19. /TISG
