Singapore Warns Against Burmese Protests


Authorities in Singapore have warned against any further demonstrations there by Burmese nationals protesting fuel price increases in their homeland.

In a statement Sunday, police reminded residents of Singapore that it is against the law to participate in any assembly lacking a permit.

A week ago Saturday, Burmese nationals led a rally without a permit at a mass transit station in Singapore. Police say they are investigating 23 participants, including three Burmese accused initiating the protest through text messages.

Singapore has strict laws about public gatherings.

There have been a number of demonstrations in Burma in recent weeks against the fuel price hike. Burmese authorities have detained scores of people who took part in the non-violent rallies.

Burma's military government has been widely criticized for human rights violations, including the imprisonment of pro-democracy political activists.
