TRS sedition trial continues
The husband of former The Real Singapore (TRS) editor Ai Takagi turned up in court for his sedition trial on Monday (March 28).
Yang Kaiheng, 27, is accused of seven counts of sedition, with an eighth charge of failing to produce documents to the police applied to be stood down by the prosecution.
He had claimed trial earlier in March.
Deputy Public Prosecutor (DPP) G. Kannan said in his opening statement that Yang had claimed his involvement with TRS lasted only a month in 2012.
After that, Yang claimed his involvement was fleeting and ad hoc, he added.
But DPP Kannan said the prosecution will show Yang's continued, sustained and intimate involvement in running every aspect of TRS.
On Monday (March 28), police investigation officer Roy Lim took the stand.
About 10 other witnesses are expected to testify.
Takagi was jailed 10 months on March 23 for four counts of sedition, with four other charges taken into consideration.
