SINGAPORE, Dec. 6 (Xinhua) -- Four Chinese bus drivers charged with instigating illegal strike were released on bail in Singapore on Thursday.

The drivers told the judge that they wanted lawyers to represent them when they appeared briefly before the Subordinate Court in the morning.

Three of them, who face charge of instigating an illegal strike, were granted bail of 10,000 Singapore dollars (8,197 U.S. dollars) each, while He Junling, the other driver who faces an additional charge of inciting an illegal strike, was granted bail of 20,000 Singapore dollars (16,294 U.S. dollars).

The drivers were released on bail and left the Subordinate Court building in the afternoon.

They told the judge that they were not able to raise the money. It was not immediately clear who paid the bail for them but some of the staff of local humanitarian organizations said they would bail out the workers personally.

The case will be mentioned on Dec. 12.
