Social worker and activist Jolovan Wham appeared in a Singapore court on Monday morning accused of illegal assembly after standing alone outside a police station holding a placard with a hand-drawn smiley face in March.
Wham, who has had a number of run-ins with the authorities in the tightly controlled country, wore a white T-shirt emblazoned with a smiley face and matching mask on his way to court.
