of Ello Ed Mundsel Bello and his 4-month jail instead of 4-year jail...

Four months jail for shooting your mouth off online and then lying about it to the police looks extremely heavy punishment, doesn’t it?

Nah, not really. Such a person could have been sentenced to three years in prison for sedition and a year for lying to the police. In other words, Ello Ed Mundsel Bello the 29-year old Filipino nurse (or rather, ex-nurse) have actually got a very light punishment. Instead of a total of 4 years in jail, he was slapped with merely 4 months duration just because the State Courts Judge Siva Shanmugam said that he was "a first-time offender" who "showed remorse by pleading guilty at the first opportunity".

Yeah sure. At the first opportunity, ‘Edz Ello’ showed remorse by claiming to police investigators that his account had been hacked by an unknown person before he eventually admitted posting the comments.

Being "a FIRST offender", he had actually made THREE other similar online posts in 2014 which led to him being dismissed from his job at Singapore's Tan Tock Seng Hospital.

On a separate note, there may be a possibility that EDZ.com.my and eDZ interior are considering legal actions to prevent Ello Ed Mundsel Bello to continue using his online moniker of 'Edz Ello'. You see, now, if one is to google for 'edz', the result page will feature the infamous Ello as well. Heh.
