Here is the statement from the Singapore Police Force:

In response to media queries, Police confirm that investigations have been ongoing since a Police report was lodged on September 27, 2014 with regard to an incident at Hong Lim Park on the same day.

Several persons involved in the incident are currently assisting Police in investigations.

They were notified by Central Police Division, via phone or letter, of appointments to be interviewed by the investigation officers. No persons have been arrested.

Ms Han Hui Hui was one of the persons asked to assist in our investigation.

Our officers visited her registered residence on October 9, 2014 at about 9.30pm after she did not answer our telephone calls.

As she was not at the registered residence, our officers handed over to her family member a notice informing her of the scheduled interview appointment at Central Police Division.

Ms Han subsequently made a phone call to the Police on the same night at about 11pm to reschedule her appointment to 8pm on 10 October 2014. However, at about 1.45pm on October 10, 2014, Ms Han contacted Central Police Division and indicated that she would arrive shortly thereafter for the interview.

She subsequently turned up at about 2.30pm and arrangements were made to accommodate her schedule. Her interview concluded at about 9.30 pm on the same day.

During the interview, Ms Han was provided with refreshments. She took several breaks but she declined an offer to take a break for dinner.
