The World Talks to Leslie Chew

Carol Hill, the global cartoon editor for PRI's the World, talks to Leslie Chew, a cartoonist from Singapore who is facing court because of his work. Chew is the creator of 'Demon-Cratic Singapore', which is published on Facebook. Although Chew claims the comic is about a fictional country with fictional characters, the Singapore government thought differently, and he was charged with sedition. Earlier this week, these charges were dropped, but he still faces a charge for contempt of court, for offending the judiciary in his comic. Hill talks to Chew and his lawyer how they feel about defeating this charge.
