The now-infamous Tan Beow Hiong, who made the headlines last year for making insulting remarks towards other races in public, was previously charged in June last year with public nuisance and committing acts that jeopardise racial and religious harmony in Singapore.
The Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) said on 14 December that after “careful consideration of the facts and circumstances,” she has had all three of her charges withdrawn and given a stern warning, according to The Straits Times and Channel NewsAsia.
Tan was granted a discharge amounting to an acquittal on 13 December, meaning that she cannot be charged again with the same offences.
The AGC said that they decided to give her a stern warning and withdraw the charges against her after considering the circumstances.
Tan was found to be suffering from a delusionary disorder that impaired her social judgement and amplified her prejudices.
She also refused treatment under a mandatory treatment order, lacking awareness of her own condition.
AGC also added that Tan had spent 2 weeks in remand, which would’ve been considered by the court during her sentencing if she had been convicted.
