Green had previously received a psychiatric evaluation, which was determined by the judge as a result of his actions and statements in court.
According to Media Outlet CNA, on Wednesday he asked the court to withdraw what he considered “illegal charges” and return the passport and return to the UK with the family.
It quoted the judge as saying that he had told Green that he was “headed in the completely wrong direction” with the conviction that he was exempt from Singapore’s laws on wearing masks.
