SEX BLOGGERS FILE REVISION APPLICATION AGAINST BAIL REFUSAL

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia - Sex bloggers Alvin Tan Jye Yee and Vivian Lee May Ling have filed a revision application against the High Court's refusal to grant bail after they claimed trail to three different charges on Thursday.
Counsel Chong Joo Tian said they filed the application at about 3.50pm yesterday.
Tan, 25, and Lee, 24, claimed trial to the three charges which were read to them before judge Murtazadi Amran.
They were jointly charged under subsection 5(1) of the Film Censorship Act 2002 (Act 620), Section 4(1)(c) of the Sedition Act and Section 298A(1) of the Penal Code.
They were accused of displaying pornographic images in their blog at Kompleks Mutiara, Jalan Ipoh here between July 6 and 7 from 9pm to 2am.
The second charge read that they had uploaded content, which has the possibility of stirring religious hostility between people of different beliefs, at a restaurant in Jalan Dang Wangi here from July 11 and 12 at about 10.48pm.
At the same time, Tan and Lee faced a third charge of publishing a seditious photograph of themselves eating bak kut teh on Facebook with the caption "Selamat Berbuka Puasa at Kompleks Mutiara".
The posting had also carried a halal logo and the words wangi, enak, menyelerakan (fragrant, delicious, appetising).
Murtazadi had granted the prosecution's application for the case to be jointly tried. He set Aug 23 for mention.
  • Tan and Lee were sent to Sungai Buloh Prison and Kajang Prison, respectively.
  • The couple removed the posting and uploaded a new picture of them eating ketupat, rendang and curry puffs after the earlier posting caused an uproar among Malay­sians. Their Facebook page was later deactivated.
  • Tan and Lee had also issued an apology in a 1:22 minute video on YouTube in which they apologized for the insensitive posting, claiming it was done in jest.
