Four men in underage prostitute case ‘surrendered’ and pleaded guilty
Posted by temasektimes on June 12, 2012
33-year-old Louis Lee Lip Kian pleaded guilty to his single charge of having sex with the girl on the afternoon of 20 November 2010 while three other men – 25 year old Wilson Oei, 31 year olds Pyi Kyaw Han and Chiang Meng Chuan have all decided to plead guilty.
The first person to plead guilty is the ex-principal of Pei Chun Public School Lee Lip Hong (pic left) who was recently released from prison after serving a 6 week sentence.
Meanwhile, criminal lawyer Subhas Anandan who is representing ten men said they will fight all the charges.
Speaking to queries from the media after a round of closed pre-trial conferences on Monday, Mr Subhas once again objected to the prosecution’s application for a gag order on the girl’s name:
“She (will have to testify) if they are going to trial….I objected to it [the gag order] on the basis that the provisions of the law do not protect people like her because she’s not a victim of rape or molest, and provisions do not apply,” he said.
