SINGAPORE - Controversial teenage blogger Amos Yee has claimed on Facebook that he was molested by a counsellor who previously stepped forward to bail him out.

Mr Vincent Law, who posted bail of $20,000 for Yee on April 21, said that the allegation was false, Channel NewsAsia reported.

Yee, 16, said in an update posted on May 13 that there were reporters gathered at his doorstep waiting for exclusive interviews and photo opportunities.

He then revealed that he would be at Pasir Panjang MRT station in the afternoon and invited journalists to 'catch' him as he leaves the station.

He said that he would "clear the air" and answer queries, including what happened in prison, and "reveal that little tidbit of information" on how Mr Vincent Law allegedly molested him.

"I am reeling in excitement for our meeting, my fellow mass-media friends, I hope to see you there," he added.

According to Channel NewsAsia, Yee was yet to be seen at Pasir Panjang MRT station as at 5pm on Wednesday.

Yee was on Tuesday found guilty of uploading an obscene image and making remarks intending to hurt the feelings of Christians.

He is due to be sentenced on June 2.

The court reduced Yee's bail sum to $10,000, with no conditions attached. Bail was previously set at $30,000, and he was not allowed to post anything online.
