Singapore’s bravest 16 year-old boy, Amos Yee Pang Sang, has had his appeal thrown out by the High Court today. Amos, who had appealed in court against his conviction and sentence, was not present in court today.
His reason being he had already been convicted and served his sentence, so it was not necessary for him to turn up in court for his appeal.
In May this year, Amos was convicted in a high profile court trial of distributing an obscene image of the late Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew and late British PM Margaret Thatcher engaged in a sexually compromising position. He was also convicted for uploading a video with remarks that offended Christians. He was sentenced to 4 weeks jail on 6th July but was released as he had been in remand much earlier.
