Filipino jailed four months for sedition and lying to police
Former assistant nurse, Ello Ed Mundsel Bello, 29, was jailed for four months on Monday (Sept 21).
The Filipino pleaded guilty last month to one count of sedition and two counts of giving false information to the police.
Bello, who worked in Tan Tock Seng Hospital, admitted to posting comments on Facebook criticising Singaporeans that could promote ill-will and hostility between Singaporeans and Filipinos here.
He did this in his flat at Block 707 Yishun Avenue 5 at around 10pm on Jan 2.
The next day, after learning the comments had gone viral, he went to Chong Pang Neighbourhood Police Post where he lied to Corporal Aavram Karl Roch, claiming he did not post them.
He lied again to Assistant Superintendent Lim Hao Jun at the Ang Mo Kio Police Division Headquarters on Jan 4.
