A bail review for teenage blogger Amos Yee will be heard on Wednesday morning at the High Court.
Yee’s lawyer Alfred Dodwell told the media that his 16-year-old client will be challenging the conditions of his bail, which do not allow him to post anything online.
Mr Dodwell said that at present, the bail conditions amount to a gag order and infringes on his client’s constitutional right to freedom of speech.
“The reason why he is sitting in prison today is because he has a fundamental problem with the bail conditions. He feels that they are just wrong,” said Mr Dodwell.
Yee was sent back to remand at Changi Prison last Thursday, and has stayed there since, after his bailor discharged himself and the court raised the bail amount to $30,000 from $20,000.
