The latest Internal Security Act (ISA) arrests for involvement in armed overseas conflict show that factors other than the extremist ideology of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria could drive Singaporeans to head to conflict zones to fight, said a security expert yesterday.
This means Singapore’s counterradicalisation efforts may need to be tweaked to account for these other factors, said Associate Professor Kumar Ramakrishna of the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies.
The Ministry of Home Affairs said yesterday four individuals have been dealt with under the ISA.
