1. MHA notes that Ms Han has published an online article titled "Alone in a cell." at her blog located at the website http://huihui247.blogspot.sg/. The article contained allegations that Ms Han was mistreated in the State Courts lock-up. These allegations are baseless and false.
2. The Singapore Prisons Service (SPS) has interviewed the relevant officers and reviewed the CCTV footage and documents in relation to Ms Han's custody in the lock-up.
3. Ms Han could have raised the issues at any time while she was in custody and the SPS would have looked into it. However, she chose not to do so. Instead, she chose to publish the fabricated, false and misleading accounts on social media.
4. The Ministry of Home Affairs takes all allegations seriously and will investigate them thoroughly. However, we will also vigorously defend our officers from baseless attacks to ensure that the integrity of our law enforcement agencies is not undermined.
