Singapore’s police arrested Malaysians, will they arrest Filipinos?

Singapore’s PM used strong language against what he said appeared to be the work of a "few trolls".
He wrote that he was appalled to read of those who had harassed the organisers of the Philippine independence day event.
"They are a disgrace to Singapore," he wrote.

Yet, Police would like to clarify that as at 10am on April 22, 2014, no permit application has been received for the 116th Philippine Independence Celebration on June 8, 2014 at Ngee Ann City. Neither have the event organisers shared any plans related to the event with the authorities.
Police wishes to remind all organisers of public events, local or foreign, 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 purpose of which is:
1. Demonstrate support for or opposition to the views or actions of any person, group of persons or any government;
2. Publicise a cause or campaign; or
3. Mark or commemorate any event.”

However, on Saturday, May 11, 2013, Singapore’s Police arrested 21 Malaysians…

Double standard?

After Acting Manpower Minister had strong words for those orchestrating a campaign against a planned event to celebrate Philippine independence day here.

He became Manpower Minister, relinquishing his appointments in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and as Mayor of Central Singapore District.
