FOUR MYANMAR NATIONALS UNDER INVESTIGATION FOR PARTICIPATING IN A PUBLIC ASSEMBLY WITHOUT A POLICE PERMIT

In response to a Police report lodged on 27 August 2020, the Police are investigating four male Myanmar nationals for participating in a public assembly without a Police permit in the vicinity of Tagore Industrial Park, in support of a Myanmar political party.

The Police would like to remind foreigners visiting, working or living in Singapore that they should not use Singapore as a platform to further their political causes.

Foreigners must abide by our laws. Public assemblies in Singapore are regulated under the Public Order Act, and organising or participating in a public assembly without a Police permit is illegal. The Police will not grant any permit for assemblies organised by or involving non-Singaporeans that advocate political causes of other countries. The Police will take action against any person who organises or participates in an unlawful public assembly.
