Singapore: Drop charges against peaceful activists and politician
Amnesty International calls on the Singapore government to drop contempt charges against peaceful activist, Jolovan Wham and politician John Tan following a hearing at the High Court on 17 July 2018. The charges against both individuals are the first use of the Administration of Justice (Protection) Act to suppress freedom of expression. Charges have also been brought against local artist and activist Seelan Palay for a peaceful protest he staged outside Parliament, further evidence of the country’s ongoing crackdown on dissent.
