Tampines woman charged with hurting religious feelings of her neighbours
The woman was ordered by the court to be remanded for two weeks to undergo psychiatric evaluation.
A woman has reportedly been charged in the State Courts with hurting the religious feelings and harassment of her neighbours in Tampines last year.
Lee Dji Lin, 63, was charged on Jan. 25. She faces one charge of wounding the religious or racial feelings of her neighbour Marliah Jonet.
Lee allegedly threw a piece of raw pork outside the victim’s flat at Blk 247 Tampines Street 21 on June 18, 2016.
If convicted, Lee faces a jail term of up to three years, or a fine, or both.
Two other charges of harassment will also proceed.
One charge alleged that Lee shouted insults in Malay at one of Marliah’s daughters including “pig, pig, pig, piglet, one by one (your) children die” on April 24, 2016.
She also allegedly waved a pig-shaped figurine:
The other charge alleged that Lee swung a bamboo pole with a female underwear attached towards Marliah’s flat on June 14, 2016.
Lee faces a fine of up to S$5,000 for one harassment charge, and a jail term of up to six months, or a fine of up to S$5,000, or both for the other harassment charge.
Lee’s harassment had reportedly been going on for six years.
A video posted on YouTube last year allegedly caught Lee in the act.
In the video, a woman was seen shouting in the direction of Marliah’s ninth-storey flat from a floor below.
A water hose was also used to spray water towards Marliah’s laundry poles.
The video also showed a woman throwing a plastic bag allegedly containing pork outside of Marliah’s flat.
Lee was ordered by the court to be remanded for two weeks to undergo psychiatric evaluation.
Lee claimed she was innocent when asked to respond to the court order.
The case will be mentioned again on Feb. 8.
