Lim Beng Wei, 58, was ordered three years of mandatory treatment by District Judge Kessler Soh on Oct 13 for tossing raw pork bones towards the balcony of a mosque in Telok Ayer.

He pleaded guilty to one count of public nuisance earlier this year.

He was diagnosed with schizophrenia, a mental disorder for more than 20 years but did not take all his prescribed medication and relapsed twice before.

Two other charges, one of it for throwing butter on a wall at the Singapore Music Box Museum was taken into consideration.

Under the conditions of the mandatory treatment order, the offender has to go for treatment with a court-appointed psychiatrist for up to three years.

He proceeded to Masjid Al-Abrar at Telok Ayer around 11 am, stood outside and threw one of the pork bones towards the second-floor balcony of the mosque.

Court documents revealed that he had thrown another pork bone at the same place, two days prior to the incident.

He was identified by Police CCTV cameras.
