A policeman accused online of illegally parking at River Valley to buy prata was instead attending to a case of public nuisance, the police told The Straits Times on Saturday (Sept 2).

Facebook user Cinorom Elicebmi had posted four photos and two videos of what he claimed was a police officer illegally parking near Spize restaurant, at 409 River Valley Road, on Friday night.

In his post, which can no longer be accessed publicly, he wrote: "Share if you think Singapore Police Force is not above the laws... LTA has painted lamp posts and sign posts within closed-circuit television (CCTV) monitoring zones with bright orange vertical strips."

The police told The Straits Times that the officer pictured and captured on video was not there to "buy prata". Instead, he was responding to a case of public nuisance.

ST understands that police officers attending to cases are allowed to park their vehicles where required.
