Singapore, June 23 (ANI): Former ABC correspondent, Peter Lloyd, has been released from Singapore prison, where he was detained on drug offences.

The foreign correspondent was jailed in December for 10 months for possessing a small amount of methamphetamine and implements used to consume it, The Age reports.

After spending six months in Changi prison, Lloyd has been freed four months before the end of his sentence due to good behavior.

Lloyd’s lawyer Hamidul Haq said he hasn’t heard from the prison or his client, but added that authorities might allow Lloyd to stay in Singapore for a few days or deport him immediately. (ANI)
