Sex bloggers, Alvin Tan. - Filepic
KUALA LUMPUR: A warrant of arrest has been issued for sex blogger Alvin Tan Jye Yee by the Sessions Court here for failing to return his passport, after leaving for Singapore on May 18.
Sessions Court judge Abdul Rashid Daud made the order after allowing an application by deputy public prosecutor Haffiza Jemeli on Friday.
The court later fixed July 18 to determine if Tan should be allowed bail or not.
On May 12, Abdul Rashid had granted an application by Tan and Vivian Lee May Ling to have their passports released.
Abdul Rashid Daud had made the order after Tan and Lee’s counsel Chong Joo Tian told the court that his clients would be in Singapore to shoot a documentary film on their lives there.
The couple were allowed to retain their passports between May 18 and June 3 to enable them to travel to the island republic.
Lee surrendered her passport on June 3.
On July 18, last year, Tan, 26, and Lee, 25, claimed trial to three charges under the Film Censorship Act, Sedition Act and Penal Code.
