5.30pm UPDATE:

Amos Yee is back in remand following his pre-trial conference which took place this afternoon.

His lawyer, Mr Alfred Dodwell, said the judge provided for bail again but Amos’ bailor has decided not to post bail again. The 16-year-old teenager breached his bail conditions when he made two blog posts yesterday (April 29).

Amos’ bail conditions remain. But he has refused to comply with them, Mr Dodwell said.

A trial date is expected to be set and it could start as early as next week.

Earlier, as Amos was making his way to Court for his pre-trial conference, a stranger approached him and slapped him. The man said: “Sue me, come and sue me!” before fleeing.

SINGAPORE — YouTuber Amos Yee has posted on his blog while out on bail — a breach of his bail conditions.

Amos made two blog posts yesterday (April 29), one titled ‘The Ridiculous Terms of my Bail’ and the other ‘My Abusive Father’.

His posts came just a day before his pre-trial conference scheduled for this afternoon (April 30).

The 16-year-old questioned the purpose of bail conditions. He said his bail conditions were “uncanny” and “has absolutely nothing to do with my presence in court”. In another blog post yesterday, Amos accused his father of being abusive and violent.

Amos’ bail conditions require him not to upload or distribute any content online before his case is concluded.

He had violated it previously by asking for public donations for his legal case via social media. He later removed the post, but it has since reappeared on his blog, and so has the profanity-laced video of himself making offensive remarks about the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew and Christians.

On March 31, Amos was charged with allegedly making remarks against Christianity, as well as making “insulting” comments about Mr Lee’s death, which are likely to cause distress to Singaporean viewers. A third charge of circulating obscene imagery — of the late Mr Lee and former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher — was also pressed against him.

He spent four days in remand as his parents did not post bail. Last Tuesday (April 21), a youth and family counsellor Vincent Law, posted Amos’ S$20,000 bail.
