The Singapore Court today took 3 weeks to determine a reformative report, which calls for a further 2 weeks to determine a psychiatric report. Three weeks ago on June 2, the Singapore Court sent Amos Yee to jail without bail so they would “determine his suitability” to serve four weeks of Reformative Training Centre (RTC). Today, the Singapore Court delivered judgment that Amos Yee is suitable for RTC, but later said that the 16 year old will need to go through another 2 weeks of jail in the mental asylum to “determine his suitability” for compulsory psychiatric treatment.

Amos Yee has been sent to the Institute of Mental Health (IMH) today and the next hearing will be two weeks later on July 6. The 16 year old YouTube has been adamant not to be “rehabilitated” by the Singapore Government and has broken his bail two times and landed in jail for a total of over 39 days despite having no judgment delivered.

Yesterday, the United Nations issued a press statement condemning the Singapore Government over Amos Yee describing his treatment “disproportionate and inappropriate”. Amos Yee was found guilty for “wounding religious feelings” after his video insulted the recently-deceased former Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew and the present Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.
