Amos Yee, the 16-year-old anarchist, has posted on his Facebook page at about 1.30am on Friday morning, saying he is "currently tendering a long, and detailed public apology to Vincent and his family, for my horrid actions", and that he needs three days to finish preparing it.
This sarcastic note, which ends with a call for forgiveness by invoking Christ's name, comes a day after Law demanded an "unreserved apology" from Yee, who had claimed the family and youth counsellor had molested him.
This prompted Law, 51, who had initially posted bail of $20,000 for the teenager in April, to seek possible legal action for defamation and had communicated to Yee's parents that he wants the teenager to apologise publicly and fully retract the allegation.
Here is Law's response from The Straits Times when told about Yee's note:
When contacted this morning, Mr Law said that he is still reserving comment on Yee's latest post.
"I'll wait and see. He said three days, didn't he?," Mr Law told the Straits Times.
