(Aug 7): Dressed in a purple jumpsuit emblazoned with the word “prisoner”, John Soh Chee Wen looked none the worse for wear on Aug 2 when he appeared in court after nearly nine months in remand.

Soh was in court for a hearing on a criminal motion to compel prosecutors to produce documents that are “relevant and germane” to his application to be released on bail. His lawyer, Tan Chee Meng of WongPartnership, argued that prosecutors have only produced extracts and portions of witness statements and audio recordings in a selective and haphazard manner to justify his continued detention.

“This has caused [Soh] great concern, and he therefore sought through us as his solicitors, the production of various documents from [prosecutors], which are directly relevant to the issue of bail and the allegations made against him,” Tan stated in his submission.
