Jul 12, 2019

Singapore’s Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has arrested a group of Myanmar nationals working there for using Singapore to mobilise support for armed violence against their government, The Straits Times reported.

Their actions in support of the Arakan Army (AA), an armed group that has conducted violent attacks in Myanmar, are "inimical to Singapore's security", MHA said in a statement yesterday. It added that those found involved in activities of security concern will be deported.

MHA said its investigations found the group had organised and mobilised some members of the Myanmar community there to support the army and its political wing, the United League of Arakan (ULA).
