Darryl David on Foreign Interference (Countermeasures) Bill

Singapore has always tried to be diplomatically sensitive when disclosing information on foreign influence. However, if there was enough evidence of a foreign government or organisation being behind activities deemed harmful to Singapore, this should perhaps be made known to Singaporeans so that the nation can take a united stand, said MP Darryl David. That could include not supporting such a country’s economy through tourism or buying its goods. In Parliament on Monday (Oct 4), Mr David also sought clarification on how the Foreign Interference (Countermeasures) Bill might impact non-governmental organisations, especially local chapters of global NGOs.
