SINGAPORE - Blogger Roy Ngerng said in a Facebook post that he has been called up by the police for questioning regarding his participation in a Sep 27 protest at Hong Lim Park.

Mr Ngerng wrote on his Facebook that he has been asked to turn up at the police station "to be investigated for illegal assembly".

Mr Ngerng, along with protest organiser Han Hui Hui, 22, had led a few hundred people in a march around the park, encroaching on the lawn of the charity carnival and frightening some special needs children who were performing on stage.

According to The Straits Times, police visited Mr Ngerng at home on Monday at about 9pm to pass him a letter summoning him to an interview at the police complex in Cantonment Road at 2.30pm today.

The post, which was posted at 9.19pm on Monday, was accompanied by a picture of the letter from the police.

The letter stated that an investigation is being conducted into "an offence of Unlawful Assembly committed at Hong Lim Park" and Mr Ngerng is being summoned as he "may be acquainted with the facts and circumstances of the case".
