Chan was initially slapped with 145 charges of various child pornography and child sex-related offences.
He pleaded guilty to seven charges of transmitting obscene material, three of promoting commercial sex with a minor outside Singapore, one charge of intending to facilitate the commercial sex with a minor outside Singapore, and one charge of possessing obscene films.
The other 133 charges have been taken into consideration during sentencing.
Chan got to know other paedophiles online and exchanged child pornographic videos and images with them.
