Don Wee on COVID-19 (Temporary Measures) (Amendment) Bill

(Updated: )

TraceTogether data should be authorised for use in police investigations or court proceedings even if they do not fall within the seven categories of serious crimes listed in the COVID-19 (Temporary Measures) (Amendment) Bill, said MP Don Wee. In Parliament on Tuesday (Feb 2), he said law enforcement officials should be equipped with the necessary tools, including data, to investigate and capture criminals. He also emphasised that unlike private companies, the Government does not collect individuals’ data to make a profit, but to protect its citizens.
