AMOS YEE'S LAWYER: AMOS' LONG REMAND WAS LAWFUL, COURT & POLICE VERY COOPERATIVE

In a shocking change in tone, lawyer Alfred Dodwell - one of 3 lawyers who represented young Singaporean blogger Amos Yee in his trial - said that Amos Yee's 50 days stay in remand was not illegal and simply reflected due process of the law. Mr Alfred Dodwell, who is the managing director at his own law firm Dodwell + CO, was speaking at a discussion on the Singapore Constitution and due process organised by Singapore Management University's Constitutional Law and Criminal Justice Club as part of its annual Criminal Justice Conference.

LAWYER: BLOGGING IS LIKE DRINKING WATER TO AMOS

Defence lawyers Alfred Dodwell and Ervin Tan had sought a reduction of Amos' S$30,000 bail amount and for him to be allowed to post content online before his trial is completed. The latter condition was too broad and disproportionate, they argued. Amos has been on social media since he was eight and social media engagement is akin to drinking water for the teenager, they said. But DPP Hay argued that Amos had already breached his bail conditions by making two blog postings while he was out on bail. The prosecution was prepared to agree to a lower bail amount and not to have him report to a police station daily if Amos agreed to go for counselling.
