Attorney-General explains why Alvin, Vivian were not allowed bail
PUTRAJAYA: Controversial couple Alvin and Vivian had not been allowed bail pending their trial because of their penchant for uploading contents that could potentially stir public ire, said Attorney General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail.
He was referring to Alvin Tan Jye Yee, 25, and Vivian Lee May Ling, 24, who had allegedly mocked Muslims and Ramadan via Facebook.
The duo were at the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court today to answer three charges, of posting indecent photographs in their blog, inciting racial antagonism, and sedition.
In a statement today, Gani said the Attorney General's Chambers (AGC) decided to prosecute them based on the legal provisions and after considering the implications of their alleged actions.
“The AGC also decided on charging them following the abduction and assault of an individual by an unidentified group, believed to be a backlash to their (Alvin and Vivian's) alleged actions," he said.
Meanwhile, Gani called on all parties to refrain from making any statement or speculation relating to the case to avoid a trial by media. --BERNAMA
