Round two, fight.
The Straits Times reported on Saturday, Dec. 12, 2015:
A 17-year-old Singaporean is being investigated by the police for allegedly making religiously offensive remarks online.
In a statement on Saturday (Dec 12), the Singapore Police Force said that reports had been lodged against the youth, in connection with certain religiously offensive remarks posted online.
The Straits Times understands that the person in question is teen blogger Amos Yee.
Initially, Yee posted a teaser of a status when sharing a Channel News Asia piece regarding the news:
He followed it up with a confirmation that it was him with the ST article about an hour later:
It is believed his latest brush with the authorities stems from one of his latest blog posts on Nov. 27, where Yee made reference to former Nominated MP (NMP) Calvin Cheng and Islam.
Yee was convicted on May 12 and found guilty of wounding the feelings of Christians in a video posted on March 27, four days after Lee Kuan Yew’s passing.
He had also uploaded an obscene image onto his blog show where the late Lee and British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher engaged in coitus.
He spent about 50 days in remand before being sentenced on July 6 to four weeks’ jail, where he was released the day he was sentenced after the punishment was backdated to include his time in remand.
