Two bloggers been jailed

Two bloggers jailed for making racist remarks online in the newspaper headline.

Aiyaya, this morning I was shocked with the newspaper headline: Two bloggers jailed for making racist remarks online.

I am speechless about it, just share the news here for bloggers-awareness.

News updated taken from Channel News Asia:

SINGAPORE : For the first time, two Singaporeans have been sentenced to jail for posting racist remarks online.

28-year-old Benjamin Koh Seng Huat, a kennel keeper at an animal shelter, has been sentenced to one month's jail.

Separately, the court sentenced 25-year-old former assistant marketing manager, Nicholas Lim Yew, to serve one day in jail and a maximum fine of $5,000.

He pleaded guilty to making racist remarks on his web blog which sparked off more than 200 comments.

Lim, whose postings were regarded less serious than Koh's by the court, was also charged under the Sedition Act.
