A netizen, Kuroe Kun, posted online on 25 January 2018 that her female friend was allegedly molested. In her post, Kuroe Kun also made allegations against an Investigation Officer (IO) from Clementi Police Division. These are serious allegations against the IO, and we have looked into it. We wish to clarify that the allegations are unfounded and false. The IO carried out his duty professionally when he attended to the female friend. The IO did not make any insensitive remarks, contrary to what has been alleged by Kuroe Kun. Neither did the IO turn Kuroe Kun’s female friend away. Rather, the female friend informed the IO of her own accord that she needed time to consider about lodging a police report
Following Kuroe Kun’s online post, the Police have requested Kuroe Kun’s female friend to come forward to lodge a report. However, she has not been forthcoming in her accounts to the Police and has yet to make a police report, despite our continual efforts to reach out to her.
The Police take a very serious view of all complaints or allegations made against our officers. Such complaints will be thoroughly investigated and if substantiated, the Police will not hesitate to take action against any errant officer. However, we also cannot condone malicious allegations against the Police. If the allegations are found to be false and made maliciously, appropriate action in accordance with the law will be taken.
The Police urge members of the public to post information online responsibly. We also urge the public not to speculate or spread unsubstantiated information.
