夏后算账篇

MARUAH

亚细安人权机制新加坡工作组(MARUAH)支持进行公正的警方调查和程序。它要求警方严守法律和有关涉及国会选举法。它于201662日致函给海峡时报言论版。海峡时报至今尚未刊登这封信。该信全文如下:

 

海峡时报言论版编辑部,

先生们、女士们,

MARUAH对有关2016531日,张素兰小姐和鄞玉林先生被警方扣留在此表达关注。在警察局进行调查期间事件过程中所采取的态度表示遗憾。

第一点,我们必须说的是,调查工作是必要的。警方人员是执行自己的任务的。对张素兰小姐和鄞玉林先生的指控应交由法院审理判决。

第二点,我们发觉到调查工作进行时是极端的具有骚扰性质和对涉嫌者的被指控罪行不成对比的。这起涉嫌触犯法令案件并不是一起暴力犯罪。涉嫌者已经承认自己在脸书上发表帖子里。但是,在他们准备签署警方给予的口供书前,警方人员提出了拿走他们的手机和手提电脑。

第三点,我们关心警方和调查官员的是否有权拿走涉嫌者的电脑、手提电脑和手机?只是与任何不遵守在34刑事诉讼法典(第68章)(Section 34 of the Criminal Procedure Code( Chapter 68))项下将意味着逮捕嫌疑犯法律。

事实上涉嫌者张素兰自己提出让警方逮捕。但是,警方并没有逮捕或者申请尽速搜索这两名涉嫌者家里的搜查令。警方使用恐吓逮捕非暴力的犯人的情况下,进入了张素兰和鄞玉林的家里拿走了他们的设备。

第四点,我们要问的是,警方进行联合调查的指导保障在哪儿?因为我们看到的是涉嫌者被拿走的电子设备与他们的社交通讯媒体户头之间是毫无关联的。

最后一点,我们也要求澄清有关(选举局)官员在(触犯)冷静日(条例时)向维文部长和国会议员陈佩玲发出的警告/行动。

我们以上所提出的问题是同样的重要的。这是要当局明确他们的程序和是否真的需要这样的指控采取侵入私人住家的行为吗?我们所提出的问题是有助于教育公众、公民社会和政党候选人如何应用有关刑事诉讼法典的条款。

Police investigation of Teo Soh Lung and Roy Ngerng

MARUAH Singapore, in support of fair police process and procedures in carrying out their duties in upholding the law and in this case regarding the Parliamentary Elections Act, sent the appended letter to Straits Times’ Forum pages on 2 June 2016. The letter was to date not published. 

——————

The Forum Page Editor,

The Straits Times

Dear Sir/Madam,

MARUAH is writing to express our disappointment and concerns at the manner and the process in which suspects, Ms Teo Soh Lung and Mr Roy Ngerng, were treated during police investigations that were held on 31st May 2016.

Firstly, we say that investigations needed to be done and the investigation officers were carrying out their duties.  We leave it to the courts to decide on the allegations against Ms Teo and Mr Ngerng.

Secondly we find the investigation process as extremely intrusive and not proportionate to the alleged offence(s) of the suspects. The offence is not in the nature of a violent crime. The suspects had agreed to sending out the postings on Facebook. But before they could sign off on the statements given, there was a proposal by the investigation officers to seize mobile phones and computers.

Thirdly we are concerned with this power and authority used by the Police and the Investigation Officers to seize the computer, the laptop, the mobile phones of the suspects. Any non-compliance would mean arresting the suspects under Section 34 of the Criminal Procedure Code( Chapter 68). In fact one of the suspects, Ms Teo, offered herself to be arrested. But there was no arrest or an application for an order to be expedited to search the homes of the suspects. With the threat of arrests of a non-violent crime, the officers entered the homes of Ms Teo and Mr Ngerng to seize the equipment.

Fourthly we ask what are the safeguards against collateral investigations by the police into what we see as unrelated issues that result from the possession of devices and the various social/communications accounts?

Lastly we also ask for clarity on the approach taken by the officers towards Minister Vivian Balakrishnan and MP Tan Pei Ling who were given a warning for the statements/actions made on Cooling Off Day.

We ask all this as it is equally important for our authorities to be clear on their processes and if it was really necessary to take on this level of an intrusive approach for this alleged offence. We ask so that the public, civil society, political candidates can also be educated on these applications of the provisions under this Criminal Procedure Code.

Ms Braema Mathi

President
MARUAH Singapore

秉公处理
