South China Morning Post - Danny Lee - IRRESPONSIBLE Report.
IRRESPONSIBLE reporting on Singapore Airlines by Danny Lee of South China Morning Post - we did not issue any threat to SQ and certainly Singapore was not in the list for 10 Aug protest. This is not a win - pls don't brag or boast - Main stream journalists - PLEASE learn to be responsible with your reporting - congratulate Singapore Airlines - this will encourage others to follow. There can be no winner nor loser - be gracious that Singapore Air is on side! Please encourage Danny Lee - - [email protected] to make a correction.

Your report dated 29 June is inaccurate and irresponsible - http://www.scmp.com/news/asia/article/1542691/sin...
1. We did not issue a threat to Singapore Airlines
2. Yes, we plan a silent protest but Singapore Airport was never in the list.
3. Ocean Geographic started the petition at CAUSE last year – there are only 46086 signatures – NOT 50,000.
4. I wrote to Singapore Airlines 4 times plus personally delivered the petitions – they responded each instance that they will consider –we did not threatened.
5. To be successful in our cause, we need to work with enterprises like Singapore Airlines – not threatened or work against them.
Lastly – this should not be seen as a victory – as a responsible journalist, you should congratulate Singapore Airlines and encourage other airlines to follow.
Please rectify the accuracies of your post. Thank you.

Subject: Shark fin
Dear Dr Aw,
Please allow me to introduce myself; I head up Public Affairs here at Singapore Airlines. I understand you have written to us in the past about the carriage of shark fin on our flights.
I am following up today to let you know that SIA Cargo has been carrying out a thorough review, taking into account the increasing concerns around the world related to shark finning. With effect from 1 August it will no longer accept the carriage of shark fin.
On behalf of Singapore Airlines, I wish to thank you for your longstanding support.
Vice President Public Affairs
