Singapore's Public Order Bill Threatens Human Rights

Teo Soh Lung from Singapore, writing for The Online Citizen, warns against the dangers of the proposed Public Order (Additional Temporary Measures) Bill 2014:

Civil rights proponents should be wary of the unfettered rights of police officers to subject them to security searches and banning orders. Those who intend to organise protests, whether it be just one person or more, may find themselves arrested or issued with banning notices! By the time they file an appeal, the police would have thwarted their intent!

The bill was drafted after a riot erupted in the ‘Little India’ part of Singapore last December 2013. It was the first riot in 40 years.
