At the Police’s request, Member of Parliament Ms Sylvia Lim (“Ms Lim”), met the Police on 23 February 2022, regarding a notification that appears similar to what Apple had sent to various Apple phone users.
The Police had earlier informed Ms Lim that she could file a Police report, or alternatively, Police will facilitate forensic examination of Ms Lim’s phone, by a commercial organisation with expertise in the field. The Police had also told her that Police will put in place a secure, auditable and transparent process for the commercial organisation to handle and examine her phone.
During the meeting, on 23 February, Ms Lim informed the Police that she was satisfied with Minister for Home Affairs K Shanmugam’s answer to her question in Parliament on 18 February, and that she did not wish to pursue the matter further. Accordingly, she did not file a Police report, nor did she require any forensic examination of her phone.
As such, the Police will treat the matter as closed.
