APEC delegates applaud Singapore’s security

4 Dec

Security at this year’s APEC meetings went smoothly, compared to the International Monetary Fund and World Bank meetings in 2006.

No arrests were made, and delegates whom MediaCorp spoke to gave the thumbs-up to the security at the meeting sites such as Suntec Singapore, Shangri-la Hotel and Istana.

“Some were even quite helpful in providing directions,” said Russia’s Elena Glusholana.

Still, the police issued move-on orders last Saturday against three Falun Gong members clad in yellow Falun Gong T-shirts for “behaving suspiciously and loitering without valid reasons”.

The incidents took place near the Istana where the APEC leaders retreat was being held, and next to the dedicated APEC traffic lane near to Orchard MRT Station, a police spokesman told MediaCorp.

“When asked by the police on why they were there, they were evasive and unable to provide satisfactory reasons,” he added.

“The police issued them with move-on orders which they complied with and no arrests were made.”
