63-year-old Lee Dji Lin was found guilty yesterday of harassing and intentionally wounding the religious feelings of her Muslim neighbours.
Lee repeatedly harassed her neighbour Ms Marliah Jonet in June 2016. On 14 June 2016, Ms Marliah found Lee holding a bamboo pole with a pair of panties attached to one end, trying to swing the pole towards the window of Ms Marliah’s apartment in Tampines.
Four days later, Ms Marliah found a slab of raw pork on her doorstep. When her daughter reviewed CCTV footage from the camera they had installed outside their home, they found that the culprit was Lee.
The court also heard that Lee had taunted Ms Marliah with a pig-shaped figurine and by calling her “babi,” meaning pig in Malay.
Lee has been diagnosed with a psychiatric disorder and so, was sentenced to mandatory treatment for 2 years.
Lee could have faced a jail term of up to six months, a fine up to S$5,000, or both for harrassment. For intending to wound the religious feelings of her neighbours, she could have been jailed for up to three years and/or fined.
