In the video the man can be heard screaming to the police, “I want you to release me! Take me to court!”

The man who identified himself as Yan Jun wrote to us earlier to say that he would be protesting today at 12pm at the central square outside Raffles Place MRT. He made his case for the protest in a Youtube video titled: “Why should PM Lee Hsien Loong resign over abuse of power?”

He said: “I have no intention of applying for a protest permit because the police are corrupt so they do not act in accordance with the law. I protested outside the US embassy and the British High Commission on Oct 20 and Nov 23 of 2016, respectably, but police took no action against me.”

He said that he had already informed the police of his protest.
