S'pore publisher seeks ministry nod for book

Today's Sun reports on the book Faces of Courage (Singapore, Media Masters, 2006) which is still officially disallowed from being imported to Malaysia from Singapore. The book, co-authored by veteran Australian journalists Ian Ward and Norma Miraflor, also includes a short essay by communist veteran Chin Peng paying tribute to Sybil Kathigasu, a Christisn Eurasian woman in Ipoh who was involved in the anti-fascist underground during the Occupation.
