SINGAPORE Democratic Party (SDP) chief Chee Soon Juan and his sister Siok Chin have been released from prison after serving their jail terms for contempt of court.
Chee Soon Juan was out on Saturday while Ms Chee was freed on Friday.
'I served my 10 days,' Ms Chee, an SDP member told AFP. 'It wasn't easy.'
She said she was held in a cell with two other people and had no communication with her brother, who was sentenced to 12 days.
The siblings were found in contempt of court earlier this month after a three-day hearing to assess damages in a defamation suit brought against them and the SDP by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew.
The sentences were the stiffest yet meted out here for the offence of contempt by scandalising the court.
The Chees initially said they would appeal, but then decided against doing so and turned themselves on June 4 to start serving their jail terms.
