A 42-year-old woman, the only one to plead guilty of the six charged for causing a public nuisance with the “Return Our CPF” rally last year, was sentenced to a S$300 fine on Monday (Mar 9).
In sentencing Chua Siew Leng, the district judge noted that her involvement in the incident was minor and that she had pleaded guilty early.
Speaking to reporters after her sentencing, Chua said she decided to plead guilty to be able to carry on with her personal plans. She did not elaborate.
Chua and the other five, including activist Han Hui Hui and blogger Roy Ngerng, were charged for disrupting a YMCA [email protected] Park event held at Hong Lim Park on Sep 27 last year. They were holding the “Return Our CPF” rally at the same place at the same time.
