non Finance, non loan, non property, non banking, non credit card
Dr Chee Soon Juan posted on Facebook that he was helping the Bukit Batok residents collect signatures to be delivered to the Jurong-Clementi Town Council, for a sidewalk to be built in their neighbourhood.
This was so that the residents won’t have to walk “on the road with passing vehicles” anymore.
He was collecting signatures at a void deck of Block 192 Bukit Batok West Avenue 6. on 25 February.
The police then released a statement saying that they were made aware of a “case-based event to be held by Dr Chee Soon Juan”.
They warned that “organising or participating in a public assembly without a police permit is illegal and constitutes and offence under the Public Order Act”.
Dr Chee was also informed by a certain Officer Fanim that a permit was needed for his petition at the void deck.
So Dr Chee went door-to-door to collect the signatures instead.
The petition was then submitted at around 4pm on 27 February.
