SINGAPORE – Two alleged administrators of SG Nasi Lemak, the Telegram group chat that shared illicit photos of women, were handed fresh charges on Tuesday (22 October).

Liong Tianwei, 37, faces three more charges of transmitting pornographic material through Telegram into SG Nasi Lemak on 25 June, 7 July, and 17 July this year at a flat in Marine Terrace.

Leonard Teo Min Xuan, 26, was given one charge of possessing pornographic material in his electronic devices at a flat in Pasir Ris on 14 October this year.

Along with two other men, Justin Lee Han Shi, 19, and Abdillah Sabaruddin, 17, Teo and Liong were initially charged on 15 October with transmitting obscene materials through SG Nasi Lemak, which had about 44,000 members before it was shut down.

The Telegram group shared voyeuristic images of women either clothed or nude, including upskirt images.

It gained public attention after Twitter users began expressing their disgust online over the nature of the images.

Teo will be remanded at the Institute of Mental Health for psychiatric observation and will return to court on 5 November. Liong will be remanded for investigations and will return to court on 29 October.

Lee and Abdillah were each handed an additional charge of having obscene material on their electronic devices last Friday. The duo’s next court mentions will be on 15 November.
