Sedition charges dropped against Leslie Chew

Good news! Sedition charges against Singapore based cartoonist Leslie Chew have been dropped.

Chew, 37, had been arrested in April this year for alleged sedition in relation to a cartoon which was posted on his comic series “Demon-cratic Singapore” on Facebook on March 27. He was released on bail on April 21.

AGC said following a review of evidence in investigation papers, the Public Prosecutor had determined that no further action be taken against Chew for any offense under the Sedition Act. The statement added that Chew was informed of the decision earlier on Monday. His police bail will be allowed to lapse and his passport will be returned to him.
