The Police were alerted to several social media posts showing persons gathering at various locations in Singapore to show support for farmers in India. The Police did not grant any permits for these cause-based assemblies. Police investigations are ongoing.
The Police would like to send a strong reminder 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. Also, the Police will not grant any permit for assemblies that advocate political causes of other countries.
Foreigners visiting or living in Singapore should abide by our laws. Those who break the law will be dealt with firmly, and this may include termination of visa or work passes, where applicable.
