‘Riot accused must report to ICA’

THE project manager accused of taking part in the Little India riot on Dec 8 will still have to report to the Immigration and Check­points Authority daily, the court heard.

Arun Kaliamurthy, 28, who was in Singapore as a tourist on a social visit pass when the riot occurred, had last week asked the court through his lawyer M. Ravi to change ICA’s “unilateral decision” to impose a daily reporting criteria to a weekly one, in line with court-ordered bail conditions.

But Deputy Public Prosecutor John Lu told the court that as Controller of Immigration, “ICA has the power to impose whatever conditions they want when they issue an ‘S’ Pass”. — The Straits Times/ Asia News Net-work
