The offence of using criminal force to deter a public servant from discharge of his or her duty, under Section 353 of the Penal Code 1871 carries an imprisonment term of up to four years, a fine, or both

The Singaporean government takes a very strict stance on public fighting, with the punishment ranging from hefty fines to jail time depending on the severity of the incident. Any fighting that results in serious injury or death can even result in the death penalty being handed down. In addition to this, those caught taking part in a fight can also face charges for any property damage that was caused due to the fight.

Public fighting can also have a very negative effect on the public’s perception of the country, with tourists and those living in Singapore seeing it as an unsafe country to visit or live in. This can lead to a decrease in tourism and foreign investment, which can have a huge impact on the overall economy of the country.
