Breibart report about this case via Consul at Arms. Apparently, Nair, 58, is charged with insulting Justice Belinda Ang Saw Ean by writing in his blog she was “prostituting herself during the entire proceedings, by being nothing more than an employee of (Singapore’s president) Mr Lee Kuan Yew and his son and carrying out their orders,” a court document said. If convicted, Nair, a former Singaporean lawyer now based in California, faces up to one year in prison and a 5,000 dollar (3,630 US) fine.
