The police allegedly visited the home of a netizen, purportedly over a “harmless” comment he had made online about wanting to throw an egg at Law and Home Affairs Minister K Shanmugam.

Facebook user Edmund Zhong had made the remark about wanting to throw an egg at the minister in the comments section of a post on Channel NewsAsia’s Facebook page.

In a post on Facebook group ‘Complaint Singapore’, Edmund wrote: “Apparently 3 days ago, 2 officers from Ang Mo Kio Division HQ went to my home regarding my egg throwing comments towards K Shanmugam.

“Felt a mix of emotions as I didn’t expect a harmless but straightforward comment can gain so much reaction. But as we all know, majority of Singaporeans are the biggest complain kias and the police simply had a job to do, even if they think it’s a waste of time. Just like this comedy case…”

Edmund appears to have deleted his post from the ‘Complaint Singapore’ Facebook page but a screenshot of his post is still circulating on social media.

The Independent has written to the Singapore Police Force (SPF) for their comment on this matter and will update this story once we receive a response.
