Singapore activist found guilty of organising illegal protest

SINGAPORE (AFP) – A Singaporean activist was found guilty yesterday of organising an illegal protest after holding what he called a “harmless” public discussion in 2016 that featured Hong Kong democracy campaigner Joshua Wong speaking via Skype. Jolovan Wham, 39, was charged with violating public order laws because he failed to apply for a police permit before inviting Wong, a non-Singaporean, to speak via video call to an audience in the tightly controlled city-state.More details in Friday’s Borneo Bulletin
