Journalist Peter Lloyd released from Singapore goal

His arrest made headlines around the world, and finally, former ABC News Journalist, Peter Lloyd was released this morning, serving just over half of his goal sentence, departing leaving Singapore’s Changi Prison.

Arrested in July last year for possession of methamphetamine, or the drug 'ice' as well as drug use equipment, Lloyd was originally facing more serious charges of trafficking and supply of drugs which were thankfully dropped.

Reports indicate Lloyd’s early release is due to him being a ‘model’ prisoner, attending counseling sessions and other activities at the prison, Lloyd is reportedly keen to be reunited with his ex-wife and children, especially his nine-year old son who is seriously ill. He has however come out as gay post his relationship with his ex-wife, and is expected back in Australia in the next few days.
