Maybe the phone lines got static leh, you know, like the telephone got some virus, so when the police said "your party may shut down traffic" it was heard as "your party will be shut down"?
I know how annoying that can be, because everytime I drive into the CTE tunnel at Havelock, my M1 handphone signal will almost always cut.
According to Mr. Clement Lee, executive director of Ministry of Sound’s parent company LifeBrandz, Mr Kelvin Yeo, Compliance Management Officer from Tanglin Police called on Friday evening after office hours demanding that the club cancel the event, failing which enforcement officers would come to the club on Sunday to shut the party down. The reason given by the police to Mr. Lee over the telephone was that the party would "promote gay activities."
A police spokesperson, however, denied that they had intervened in any way.
What they did after receiving "information from the public" about the party on March 24 was to contact the Ministry of Sound's management to "obtain more details" to plan for possible "traffic or law and order situations that might arise".
Said the spokesperson: "At no time did we advise the management of the Ministry of Sound to cancel the event."
