Mr Vincent Law, 51, a family and youth counsellor has told TOC that he has decided not to pursue the allegation of molest made by 16 year old blogger, Amos Yee after the latter had made a public apology on the matter.
On Wednesday, Amos tempted reporters to turn up at Pasir Panjang MRT station in his facebook posting by saying that he would reveal information of how his former bailor, Mr Vincent Law allegedly molested him.
The press picked up his posting and reported extensively on the allegation against Mr Law.
“It is not me who Amos hurt with his allegation, but it is my whole family who was deeply hurt.” said Mr Law, on Thursday.
However, 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.
Amos had earlier clarified the allegation against Mr Law to be an act of “trolling” which he performed on the reporters from the Mainstream Media (MSM) due to the harassment he faced at his flat where he is living at.
Mr Law had said to TOC that he demanded an unreserved apology from Amos and a full retraction of the molest allegation.
“I am extremely remorseful for the turmoil that I have caused to Vincent and his family, for the allegations towards him that he molested me.I am currently tendering a long, and detailed public apology to Vincent and his family, for my horrid actions. And I implore him to give me about 3 days to finish preparing it, I am a slow writer…
I understand that Vincent is a Christian and preaches the tenant [sic] of forgiveness. So praise Jesus, our holy Christ, please offer me, a 2nd chance.”
“I think what he posted is sufficient. He has both retracted and apologised. I will not pursue the matter further.” said Mr Law on Friday and added that there is no need for any detailed apology.
“I don’t care what else he’s going to say as long as he doesn’t repeat the allegation.” and pointed to the fact that Amos said something on the matter is already a change.
“I’m satisfied regardless of whether he meant it or not.”
