It appears that no one has an answer as to how teenage blogger Amos Yee is still able to post on Facebook. This was after the Singapore Prisons service confirmed that Amos Yee, who has been in remand at Changi Prison over the past 3 weeks, has no internet access.
Yet Facebook postings have appeared on Amos Yee’s page mysteriously at regular intervals. As of Friday night, there are a total of 7 posts on his Facebook page.
In these posts, Amos wrote about prison conditions, complaining about the lack of sunlight in the cells, criticizing the attitude of prison officers towards Yee’s choice of a vegetarian diet.
In one post, Yee compared himself to political martyrs such as Gandhi or Nelson Mandela.
All three of Yee’s lawyers – Mr Alfred Dodwell, Mr Chong Jia Hao, and Mr Ervin Tan – said that they did not know how the posts were being made and declined to speculate.
“We aren’t aware of how this is happening and we don’t want to speculate. We’ll just focus on preparing for the sentencing. Everything else is secondary,” says Mr Chong.
Yee’s mother Madam Mary Toh also refused to comment on the posts.
Yee will return to court on June 23, where he may learn his sentence.
