‘Smiley Sign’ Protest Lands Man In Trouble

Singapore: An activist in Singapore will be charged by police for staging a one-man protest without a permit during which he held up a sign with a ‘smiley’ face outside a police station.

The 40-year-old Jolovan Wham has a record of several run-ins with authorities in the city-state. The latest charge relates to an incident in March when he demonstrated his support for a climate activist who said he had been questioned by police over a protest.

Wham, who posted a picture of him holding the smiley sign on his social media accounts, will be formally charged in the court on Monday.
