Police to public: Don’t circulate ‘kidnap’ postings
Posted by temasektimes on March 31, 2012
The Singapore police has issued another statement to the public not to spread ‘unsubstantiated information’ about unverified ‘kidnapping’ of children recently which may cause ‘unnecessary alarm’.
Responding to queries from the media, the police would only say it is ‘aware’ about the postings circulated online about young children being reportedly led away by strangers in public places and that they are ‘investigating’ them.
In the latest posting on its Facebook, the police said investigations reveal there is no kidnapping or abduction so far:

Meanwhile, the latest rumor about a Malay girl being ‘kidnapped’ in Tampines Street 22 turned out to be a hoax as the police confirmed did not receive any police report on the case. It added that it will not hesitate to take action against anyone who ‘knowingly’ spread the rumors.
