"A Singapore teenager who posted online a video that was deemed offensive to Christians, and an obscene image of late leader Lee Kuan Yew, will be released after a court sentenced him on Monday to jail time already served. The case has reignited concerns about censorship and social controls in the Southeast Asian financial hub, and has drawn criticism from human rights activists. Amos Yee, 16, was sentenced to four weeks of imprisonment from June 2, which means he could be released immediately after spending 50 days in custody." (07/06/15)
