Fremont lawyer reportedly freed from Singapore

I just got an email saying that Gopalan Nair, the Fremont attorney whose spent much of this year detained in his native Singapore, has been released from a Singapore jail and arrived back in the U. S. yesterday.

Nair, an immigration attorney, who works in the same building as the Argus, was arrested on sedition charges in Singapore earlier this year after criticizing a judge on his blog, Singapore Dissident.

He was apparently sentenced to three months in prison back in September and was released last week for good behavior.
