NO permit application has been received for a planned Philippine Independence Day celebration on June 8, the police said.
In a statement, the police said the event organisers have not shared any plans related to the event with the authorities either as of 10am yesterday.
The Pilipino Independence Day Council Singapore (PIDCS) is in charge of organising the celebration, which it plans to hold at the Ngee Ann City Civic Plaza.
Organisers withdrew a Facebook post about the celebration last week after it received hundreds of comments protesting against the event, but have said they plan to go ahead with the festivities if they get approval from the authorities.
Police reminded all organisers of public events that under the Public Order Act, a permit is generally required to hold any public assembly or conduct any public procession regardless of the number of participants. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
