This is one rising problem in Singapore, don't know why there are increasing cases of people baring themselves naked in public ...

A few months ago a man stripped everything on the MRT..

Wonder is this a small
Problem compared to other problems other countries are facing ? Like Sewol ferry disaster and mass shooting in Southern California or natural disaster ..

With so few response , maybe this is so small an issue that no one is interested ..

Is there any country in the world that allows people to go around naked if they so wished to ?!

In my opinion, there will always be isolated events like this in any country. It seems that mental illness is at the heart of it when it's in a place where it's strictly prohibited. I think it shouldn't be a big deal.

What's the punishment for being naked in Singapore? How much is the fine? Or does one get caned?

Does not make the news in other countries because either they're too common or there are other more important news. In San Francisco, it's a regular occurrence in certain areas. In the Nordic and German-speaking countries, people actually sunbathe in the nude in public (such as parks or beaches that are far from being secluded), sometimes even walking into nearby areas naked.

I would also like to know if there is any legal punishment or fine against people who just take their clothes off in public in Singapore? Do they undergo psychological tests? what if proven if they really hv some psychological issues but not necessarily with worse mental problems, what happens then?
