Three demonstrators who were confronted by dozens of police in Singapore last month filed a lawsuit on Friday against authorities who they claimed violated their rights to assemble and peaceful protest. The three allege that Home Affairs Minister Wong Kan Seng, who is also deputy prime minister, and Commissioner of Police Khoo Boon Hui acted unconstitutionally when police forces confronted them Aug. 11.
The three and another person had stood silently outside a public building carrying signs that called for greater transparency in Singapore's national institutions. Dozens of police, some in riot gear, surrounded them, ordering them to leave or face arrest. Police said they were acting on a complaint from a member of the public that the protesters were causing a nuisance. All four complied with the police request, informes the AP. I.L.
