Title : Man arrested for posting racially-offensive content online
Date : 21 May 2008 0030 hrs (SST)

SINGAPORE: The police have arrested a 24-year-old man for posting racially-offensive content on his blog.

The man was nabbed at his home in Paya Lebar Way on Tuesday.

As part of ongoing investigations, the police have also seized a computer, believed to be used to post the blog.

The arrest follows two complaints, which the police received on May 19, concerning the alleged posts.

Under Section 298 of the Penal Code, Chapter 224, those who have ‘deliberate intention of wounding the religious or racial feelings of any person, cause any matter however represented to be seen or heard by that person’, can be jailed for up to three years or fined, or both. - CNA/vm
