Police Investigate CHIJMES Chapel Party

Police Investigate CHIJMES Escape "Chapel Party" Incident on 04 April 2012: Police are investigating if the organizer who planned to hold the Escape Chapel Party had put up insensitive advertisements that could have offended the Catholic faith. The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA)

The event, called the Escape Chapel Party, was to be held at Chijmes on Saturday, during the Easter weekend. It was organised by Creative Insurgence, the Singapore arm of a British events company, which had leased the venue from Watabe.

This follows a police report made against the organiser of the event that was planned for Saturday, April 7, at Chijmes.

The Ministry of Home Affairs said in a statement on Wednesday that it noted that the organiser had cancelled the event.
It said if the event had been carried out as publicised, the organiser could have breached one of the conditions of his licence.

He could be sanctioned and could lose his licence.

The ministry said while organisers can be creative with their events, there's no excuse for breaking the law, or for insulting or denigrating any racial group or religion in Singapore.

It stressed that it does not condone any behaviour that denigrates any religion in Singapore.

It said mutual respect, tolerance and restraint are critical to maintaining communal peace and harmony in a multi-ethnic and multi-religious society.
