Mr Vincent Law, 51, family and youth counsellor, has told TOC that he is demanding Amos Yee to make an unreserved apology and a full retraction of the molest allegation made against him on Wednesday afternoon.
16-year old blogger, Amos Yee, who was found guilty of the two charges brought against him by the Attorney General’s Chambers on Tuesday, 12 May had made an allegation of molest against his former bailor, Mr Vincent Law, which he then clarified to be an act of “trolling” on the reporters from the Mainstream Media (MSM).
Mr Law had acted as a bailor for Amos Yee on 21 April and subsequently discharged himself as bailor on 30 April, Wednesday.
Amos was found guilty of the charge of obscenity and wounding the feelings of Christians in a YouTube video criticising former prime minister, Lee Kuan Yew.
In his initial post which contained the allegation, Amos tempted reporters to turn up at Pasir Panjang MRT station where he will reveal information of how his former bailor, Mr Vincent Law allegedly molested him.
Amos never turned up for the meeting and left reporters waiting at the MRT station for hours. It was 7 hours after the allegation was made, which he then wrote that Mr Law did not molest him.
In Amos’ clarification post, he wrote,
“Yeah… I think some people found out by now… I did, in fact, make use of the voracious desire of the reporters, to xxxx with the mainstream media.
I think it’s pretty obvious when I have arranged a meeting with a person named ‘Dick Ow’, and there is no video game store in Red Hill, at least one that I’m aware of.
I manipulated the press to indulge in the thoroughly exhausting experience of waiting in Pasir Panjang fruitlessly for several hours, which they did with their quote unquote ‘diligence’. They are all quite obscure and hard places to reach in Singapore aren’t they?
And Vincent Law didn’t really molest me, haha. Though he is immensely creepy. I’ll save the specific details for another time.
Yeah it was all a troll, a troll that could only be possible by the inherent stupidity of the media. Have fun!”
Mr Law finds Amos’ clarification being insincere and does not absolve him fully from the molest allegation, as Amos writes, “And Vincent Law didn’t really molest me“.
“It is not me who Amos hurt with his allegation, but it is my whole family who was deeply hurt.” said Mr Law.
Mr Law has since communicated his demands of an unreserved apology from Amos and a full retraction of the molest allegation to Amos’ parents.
Failing which, Mr Law said that he would not hesitate to take up legal actions on the matter. He also said that he would consider to take legal actions against media outlets which unreservedly republished Amos’ defamatory allegation.
