The Singapore Gun Club and the Singapore Rifle Association are in trouble with the Singapore Police Force. In a statement issued today, the police said that they have seized a “number of arms” from both the registered societies due to “serious irregularities”.
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”.
Sport Singapore (SportSG) has also asked “Singapore Shooting Association to implement measures to correct the situation before opening up for public use” but that “National shooters will not be affected by the closure”.
