S’poreans completely clueless as to who is the unnamed ST reporter charged with underage sex

Posted on 21 October 2013

The accused’s lawyer requested court to withhold name, prosecution rolls their eyes had no objections.

A 29-year-old former reporter with The Straits Times was charged in court yesterday with three counts of having consensual sex with a minor.

However, he was not named at the request of his lawyer, who reasoned that withholding the accused’s name is for the sake of the girl, as the court had issued a gag order to not name the girl as she is young.

The SPH local scholar is accused of repeatedly porking the 15-year-old girl in 2011 and 2012.

He joined ST in 2009 but his employment was terminated on Jan. 18 this year.

Singaporeans interviewed said they have no idea who this ST reporter is, as a result of his lawyer’s request to withhold his name.

Bu Zhi Dao, a local, said: “No, no, I don’t know who because I never read his name all over Yahoo! News and numerous online forums earlier this year already.”

“I wonder if the prosecution did not object the lawyer’s request to withhold the name that time they got ahm chio anot?”
