DISTRICT JUDGE EDDY THAM ALLOWS TRS EDITOR YANG TO LEAVE SG & VISIT AILING FATHER

When hearing resumed in the afternoon, District Judge Eddy Tham allowed the application for alleged TRS editor Mr Yang Kai Heng to leave Singapore, but subject to an increased bail of S$60,000.

Mr Yang is to return to Singapore by 17 May, and also to provide medical report updates on his father’s condition every three days and he has to remain contactable at all times.

It is understood that the other alleged TRS editor Ms Ai Takagi will remain in Singapore.

Despite DPP Kannan’s strenuous objections to Yang leaving Singapore, Yang’s lawyer Choo Zhen Xi told the Judge that Yang’s family is based in Singapore. This may have convinced the Judge of Yang’s non-flight risk.
