Natalie Siow Yu Zhen, 24, was sentenced to five months’ jail on Friday, Oct. 9. She is the sole woman linked to the Orchard Towers murder in July 2019. Siow pleaded guilty to one count of assault, among other offences. Her initial murder charge was later reduced to assault. We may look forward to more selfies on social media from Natalie Siow next year. With a criminal record, she may have difficulty finding a job. But no matter how you look at it, she is already a potential influencer.
We don’t know the intricate details of her offence, so we are not in the position to judge whether the punishment is too light. Injustice may come in another form – when she boasts of having more followers than me.
