Briton detained in Singapore mental hospital after refusing to wear mask

Sharing is Caring!

A British man arrested for refusing to wear a facemask on Singapore’s subway has been detained in a mental hospital after branding legal action against him “disgusting”.

As his trial began on Thursday, 39-year-old Benjamin Glynn said he would “never plead guilty or not guilty” to the charges against him. “I refuse to be a slave,” he added as anti-mask supporters backed him from the public gallery. “I think it’s insane that I am facing a trial at all, just for not wearing a mask.”

“The accused’s behaviour in court speaks for itself,” Mr Koh said. But Mr Glynn replied in a raised voice: “My mind is crystal clear. I’m wide awake.”

Judge Tham ordered Mr Glynn to be remanded to the Institute of Mental Health for psychiatric monitoring until the trial continues on August 19.
