The High Court on Tuesday (Nov 11) revoked the decision to grant bail, it was announced. Yang Yin is in remand now, and will reappear in court on Dec 4.
Public prosecutors on Monday submitted reasons why the High Court should reverse a bail order granted by the State Courts. They had filed a Criminal Revision in the High Court last Friday.
Last Thursday, a District Judge had granted Yang bail of S$150,000, after impounding his passport and ordering him to report to the investigating officer daily. In their submissions, prosecutors said the District Judge had “committed errors of law and procedure” in this case, and that Yang had not discharged his burden of proving that bail should be granted to him.
Yang is currently facing 331 charges for falsifying receipts to his company, Young Music and Dance Studio between 2009 and this year. He will return to court on Dec 4. If convicted, he could be jailed up to 10 years and/or fined.
