SINGAPORE: The second of four men accused of causing grievous hurt to a full—time national serviceman, who later died, has been sentenced to seven months’ jail.
23—year—old Lee Boon Leong had punched the 21—year—old victim, Chen Zixuan, after a night of merry—making on December 3 2011.
Lee was with three friends — 24—year—old Desmond Neo Han Wen, 28—year—old Poh Chong Heng and 23—year—old Marcus Lee Han Wei — at the time of the offence.
The four men were headed for supper at Central Square at Havelock Road, shortly after 6am that day.
At the same time, another group comprising of the deceased, 24—year—old Matthew Li, 21—year—old Darren Matthias Chan and 21—year—old Andrea Lim Mei Chen blocked the path of the car Lee was in.
A fight broke out and Lee’s group threw punches and kicked Chen, Li and Chan.
But the fight stopped after Chen said he dislocated his thumb.
At about the same time, an unidentified accomplice of Lee who is still at large, came to the scene and a second fight broke out.
Chen suffered a heavy punch to his face and collapsed to the ground.
While he managed to get home, Chen later died of his injuries.
Neo was the first to be dealt with in this case.
He was sentenced to seven months’ jail in August 2012.
