Singapore's Foreign Affairs Ministry (MFA) has asked the Malaysian High Commission for details of the investigation on how two Singaporean women were treated while in a Johor detention centre.

A statement from MFA on Friday said that it expected to be informed of the outcome of the investigations from the Malaysian authorities. However, no results were received.

 

Yesterday however, Malaysian newspaper The Star reported that findings of Malaysia's probe into the matter were announced during their parliament session this week.

A Home Ministry statement said that the officers involved in the incident carried out their responsibilities in an orderly manner.

The MFA statement said: "Following media reports in Malaysia that the Malaysian authorities have provided a reply to a Parliamentary question on the same case, MFA has asked the Malaysian High Commission in Singapore to provide more information."

One of the victims involved in the incident, who only wanted to be known as Ms Chang, told The Straits Times that she has not visited Malaysia since the incident.

She was not aware that the Malaysian authorities had completed their investigation, but added that she has decided not to seek legal action over the incident.
