Since 16 July 2015, Amos Yee has filed for an appeal against his 4 weeks jail sentence with the High Court and has instructed his lawyer Alfred Dodwell to sue 49 year old Neo Gim Huah.
Amos said in his Facebook post:
“Will my lawyer, Dodwell, who as promised, quickly sue the guy who hit me in the face, prolonging that is really aggravating my mental condition.”
Neo Gim Huah slapped Amos Yee while the latter on his way to a court hearing. Neo was swiftly arrested by the police and soon sentenced to 3 weeks imprisonment for the assault. Neo testified that he slapped Amos Yee because Lee Kuan Yew is someone he respects a lot and he is hurt by Amos Yee’s video.
