LI SHENGWU TO PAY S$15,000 FINE BUT INSISTED HE’S NOT GUILTY
Li Shengwu, the nephew of Singapore’s prime minister, announced that he would pay a S$15,000 fine for contempt of court, but maintained that he does “not admit guilt.”
In a Facebook post, Li Shengwu said he is paying the fine to avoid giving the Singapore Government an easy excuse to attack him and his family.
“I do not admit guilt. I have never denied writing what I wrote to my friends in a private Facebook post,” he added.
He was found guilty of contempt of court last month and was ordered to pay the fine of S $ 15,000 within two weeks or serve a week’s jail in default.
