The Facebook user named Bryan Lim has been charged in court for inciting violence against the Singapore LGBT community. His defence lawyer Adrian Wee said that Lim was informed of the charges on Wednesday and all his electronic devices (laptop, desktop, smartphone) were seized by the police.
After the saga was blown out of proportion, Lim apologised with a half-hearted explanation to shirk responsibility. He said: “I did not mean physical bullets nor physical death. I mean open fire in debate and remove them from Singapore domestic matters”.
Fortunately, the authorities were not convinced by his weak argument and will charge him in Court on 4 August 2016. For inciting violence via electronic means, he could be jailed for 5 years or fined. His bail was set at $10,000.
