A Filipino has been convicted in Singapore of violating its Sedition Act and of providing false information to the authorities, Channel News Asia has reported.
Ello Ed Mundsel Bello, 28, was reported to have been convicted in connection with the slurs against Singaporeans he supposedly made on Facebook earlier this year.
He pleaded guilty to the three charges on Wednesday.
According to the news website, Bello was found to have violated the Sedition Act when he promoted feelings of ill-will and hostility.
Another charge under the Sedition Act and another for lying to the police will reportedly be taken into consideration during sentencing.
In a Facebook post, Bello called Singaporeans "loosers (sic) in their own country".
"We take their jobs, their future, their women, and soon, we will evict all SG loosers out of their own country", Bello said.
He added that Singapore would be the "new Filipino state". —NB, GMA News
