Man allegedly participated in Marina Bay public assembly without permit, police investigating

The police are investigating a 32-year-old male Indian national who allegedly participated in a public assembly at Marina Bay on Tuesday (Dec 24) without a police permit.

A statement from the police said the man allegedly carried out the activity in Marina Bay to show his opposition to India’s Citizenship Amendment Bill.

According to The Straits Times, the man had apparently posted a photo on social media that showed him holding a placard expressing his unhappiness.

The police would like to remind the public that organising or participating in a public assembly without a police permit in Singapore is illegal and constitutes an offence under the Public Order Act.

The police will not grant any permit for assemblies that advocate political causes of other countries.

"F​​oreigners visiting or living in Singapore should abide by our laws," said the police.
