Justice Tay Yong Kwang's Oral Judgement for Magistrate’s Appeal No. 9108 of 2015 Amos Yee v Public Prosecutor

On the question of conviction on both charges, I see no reason to disagree with the DJ in most of her findings except for the qualifications that follow. For the s 292 PC charge, I would add that depicting 2 naked bodies in that overtly sexual position, with or without the attendant words, must be obscene by the standards of any right-thinking society. A picture does not become obscene only when genitalia and/or penetration of sexual organs are explicitly shown.
