The irregularities were discovered after the police conducted an arms audit at the armories of the two organisations on Tuesday, and investigations are still ongoing.
Sport Singapore (formerly Singapore Sports Council), a statutory board of the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth, Sport Singapore, confirmed this with a statement saying that “in light of the recent findings of the serious licensing irregularities at the National Shooting Centre, SportSG has closed the facility”.
