No permit application has been received for a planned Philippine Independence Day celebration on June 8, said the police on Tuesday.

In a statement, the police said event organisers have not shared any plans related to the event with the authorities either as of 10am on Tuesday.

The Pilipino Independence Day Council Singapore (PIDCS) is in charge of organising the celebration, which it plans to hold at the Ngee Ann City Civic Plaza.

Organisers withdrew a Facebook post about the celebration last week after it received hundreds of comments protesting against the event, but have said they plan to go ahead with the festivities if they get approval from the authorities.
