Teenage blogger Amos Yee faces 8 new charges
By Lianne Chia
POSTED: 26 May 2016 09:29 UPDATED: 26 May 2016 12:30

SINGAPORE: Teenage blogger Amos Yee, who was jailed last year for making offensive remarks against Christianity and posting obscene images online,
was charged in the State Courts on Thursday (May 26).

The 17-year-old was arrested on May 11 and released on bail of S$5,000.

Five of the charges Yee faces are for allegedly wounding the religious feelings of Muslims, and one for allegedly wounding the religious feelings of Christians.
These charges are under Section 298 of the Penal Code.

The other two charges are for allegedly failing to show up at Jurong Police Division on two occasions, despite a notice from Assistant Superintendent of Police Doreen Chong
and a magistrate’s order to do so. These charges are under Section 174 of the Penal Code.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Kelvin Kow asked the judge to fix an early trial date, noting that Yee is "obviously escalating his offensive behaviour in a bid to gain attention",
adding that Yee "has upped both the tempo and offensiveness of his posts".

While the prosecution did not object to Yee being out on bail, DPP Kow also asked the judge to warn Yee of the potential consequences if he commits further offences while out on bail.

To that, Yee responded: "If the prosecution insists, no problem."

Yee was not represented by a lawyer, but said he would "do his best" to find one.

If convicted of deliberately wounding the religious feelings of others, Yee faces up to three years’ jail and a fine. He also faces up to a month’s jail and
a fine of up to S$1,500 for failing to report to the Jurong Police Division despite an order.

The pre-trial conference has been set for next Monday, May 30, 9.30am.

How about the folks that sympathized with him before - are these guys still sympathizing with him or opinions about him have changed?

Bright? Bright is been getting into no trouble when toying with troubles.
This is just been foolish. A fool who actually thinks he will get out of troubles when he is in more troubles.

I was one of those who didn't take to criticising him nor his parents. I did not sympathized with him exactly, but I wasn't judgemental of him nor to even send regards at his parents..

As an ordinary average human being, who am I to judge? I'm no saint.

We were all young once and the raging bull in a teen. We wouldn't have done things the same way we did when we were teens.

The 'fool' part is probably directed at him courting trouble repeatedly. But what he said, etc, isn't of a fool. This boy is intelligent actually, but for a wrong reason.

The law cramp on him so hard. He is now a 17 years old boy. What about LWL, in her late 50s (presume) who said what about building a dynasty? Why isn't she charged for sedition? If the authorities doesn't take action on her, if LHL didn't sue the pants off her, what does this prove?

What did the machinery said about such things? There MUST BE some facts behind LWL's words if no action is taken against her isn't it? Than why does the RIGHTEOUS Singaporeans went all out at a 17 years old boy?

It is up to individuals to think from which angle they want.

Even if the LWL saga was not "bridge under waters" by now, do we really believe the MSM would publish any updates?
With such "blackouts" Sporeans normally tend to forget.........or????
