Judge Samuel Cole said in a written decision dated Friday, March 24, that the Singapore government had persecuted the 18-year-old Yee on account of his political opinions, according to a statement received from his lawyer. Yee has been detained in the United States since he sought political asylum there upon arriving at Chicago’s O’Hare airport in mid-December last year. — PNA/Kyodo ]]>
