SINGAPORE: A 47-year-old unemployed man was fined S$3,000 on Tuesday for performing fellatio on another man in a public toilet in Citylink Mall.
Tan Eng Hong was spotted peeking at another man in an adjacent cubicle through the gap below the partition walls on March 9 this year, the court heard.
When police arrived and summoned both men out, Tan was seen wearing only his shirt and tried to throw a condom into the toilet bowl, the court heard.
The other man, Chin Chee Shyong, 40, was busy getting dressed.
Chin had already been fined S$3,000 last month.
In mitigation, defence lawyer M Ravi said his client was very remorseful of his actions and has since sought help at a homosexual counselling centre that assists gays and addresses their social and psychological issues.
He urged District Judge Sarjit Singh to impose a fine on Tan as he had taken "positive steps to not repeat these acts in the public arena".
For performing an obscene act in a public place to the annoyance of others, Tan could have been jailed for up to three months, fined, or both.
