SINGAPORE – Four male Myanmar nationals are being investigated by the police for participating in a public assembly without the relevant permits.
In a press release on Thursday (27 August), the Singapore Police Force (SPF) said that the group did so in the vicinity of Tagore Industrial Park, in support of a Myanmar political party which was not named.
The police added that it is investigating the men in response to a police report made on the same day.
“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,” said the SPF.
Public assemblies in Singapore are regulated under the Public Order Act, and organising or participating in one without a police permit is illegal, the SPF added.
“The police will not grant any permit for assemblies organised by or involving non-Singaporeans that advocate political causes of other countries.”
