SINGAPORE - A 41-year-old man has been arrested for the second consecutive day after holding a protest at Raffles Place.

The man - understood to be Singapore citizen Yan Jun - was arrested a second time on Tuesday afternoon (July 4) for an offence under the Public Order Act.

The Straits Times understands he was out on bail after his arrest at the same place on Monday (July 3) afternoon.

Photos circulating on social media on July 4 show him standing outside the Raffles Place MRT station and holding up a sign reading "PM Lee: resign over Terrax (sic) conspiracy!".

Police investigations are ongoing.

In November last year (2016), nine Singapore Armed Forces Terrex Infantry Carrier Vehicles were seized by Hong Kong Customs officials for more than two months.

The vehicles were returned to Singapore in January this year (2017).
