MALAYSIAN COURT FORFEITS SEX BLOGGER'S BAIL FOR FAILING TO RETURN PASSPORT?

 
KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia -  The Sessions Court forfeited the RM20,000 bail imposed on controversial sex blogger Alvin Tan after he failed to return his passport for a second time.
Judge Abdul Rashid Daud said he was not satisfied with the two bailors, Loo Ching Ching, 44, and All Kim Lian, 57, for their failure to fulfil bail conditions.

  • “Both bailors failed to show sufficient cause under Section 404 of the Criminal Procedure Code.
  •  “Therefore, the court will forfeit the RM20,000 bail against Tan,” he said, Friday.
  • On July 18, last year, Alvin Tan Jye Yee, 26, and Vivian Lee May Ling, 25, claimed trial to three charges under the Film Censorship Act, Sedition Act and Penal Code.
  • However, one of the three charges, which was under Section 298A of the Penal Code, was struck out by the Court of Appeal on April 21.

The charges that still stand are for allegedly publishing a photograph with the comment “Selamat Berbuka Puasa (dengan bak kut teh...wangi, enak, menyelerakan)” which contained a halal logo and possibly seditious statements, and for displaying pornographic images on their blog.
The duo’s postings last July 11 caused an uproar among Malaysians of all races for their insensitivity.
