Political criticism is not a crime here, implied a statement made by the Law Ministry of Singapore.

Great.

Then I wonder why three CEC members of the Singapore Democratic Party were found guilty of distributing pamphlets criticising the PAP government without a permit. (Article can be found here.)

Does it mean that one has to ask for permission (i.e., seek for a permit) before criticising the government in Singapore?

Once again, may I implore Mr. K Shanmugam, our law minister, to enlighten us here on this issue.

I wonder if Ah Cow (or Ah Gu, for that matter)

were to apply for a permit to criticize the

garment would such a permit be issued?
