police investigations after illegal protest at Merlion Park

Postby tankee » Thu May 09, 2013 8:15 pm

SINGAPORE: Five Malaysians are now assisting police in their investigations following an illegal outdoor protest on Wednesday night at Merlion Park.

Police said the individuals are believed to have organised the illegal outdoor protest.

Police said they received a call at about 9.50pm on Wednesday night about a group of people that had gathered to stage the illegal protest. About 100 people had gathered illegally in the park with placards and other paraphernalia.

The police advised the group that such an activity is illegal in Singapore. The group subsequently dispersed peacefully.

Police would like to remind the public that conducting an outdoor protest without a police permit is illegal in Singapore, and stressed that while foreigners -- including Malaysians -- are allowed to work or live here, they have to abide by the laws here.

Foreigners should not import issues from their own countries into Singapore, which can disturb public order as there can be groups with opposing views.

Police warned that authorities will act firmly, adding that those who break the laws will face action, which could include termination of their visa or work passes.

Zhang Yao Dong. I think he no longer with MediaCorp.

From Wiki:

Zhang Yaodong (simplified Chinese: 张耀栋; traditional Chinese: 張耀棟; pinyin: Zhāng Yàodòng, born Teoh Yeow Tong on 17 December 1977) is a Malaysian actor based in Singapore.

If it is just about Malaysian fighting for a "cleaner" election and government, I am not worried. I am more worried if they turned it into Malay vs Chinese political fight. This will be worrying.

Although Malaysia is just 1 Causeway from Singapore....

My impression of Malaysia is a country bigger than Singapore....
Life there is not as hectic as Singapore, people there enjoy their stress free work....spacious homes

Have not been to Malaysia for the last 10 years.....

Now when I watch this video I feel very upset, what is happening to our neighbour..... :shock:



Will Singapore be like that when our population swell to 6.9 million.... :scared:
