May 18, 2020 | 🚀 Fathership
SINGAPORE - The police have tracked down "a number of the individuals" who gathered along Robertson Quay over the weekend despite the circuit breaker, said Minister for the Environment and Water Resources Masagos Zulkifli on Monday.

Said Mr Masagos: "The Circuit Breaker can only work when everybody plays their part. We will enforce against anybody found breaching safe distancing measures."

The agency will continue monitoring the area with the Singapore Police Force to ensure compliance by operators and individuals.

A URA spokesman said on Sunday that the agency has been doing regular patrols in areas such as the Central Business District, Singapore River - which includes Robertson Quay - and conservation districts.

While it found the majority of operators and individuals compliant with circuit breaker measures, nearly 30 fines and five closure orders have been issued in the past month to individuals and business operators.
