Amos Yee, the 18-year-old teenager who ran away from Singapore to seek political asylum in the United States, is facing the prospect of a prolonged detention that exceeds the number of days he had been jailed in Singapore.
This was after he came face-to-face with the reality that the world doesn't care about him or his case.
In a Facebook post published on Jan. 22, 2017, Yee ranted that he will be kept in detention in the US longer than he was jailed in Singapore as the court takes its time deciding on his case.
Yee was previously jailed for a combined total of 50 days in Singapore, having been to court twice.
He has called on his supporters to voice out on his behalf, to call attention to the immigration policy to expedite his release.
If Yee fails in his political asylum bid, he faces the prospect of being deported from Donald Trump's America and banned for life from re-entering the US.
We are sure the Singapore government will welcome back the former resident of Changi Prison with open arms to serve his National Service.
