My spouse has hired a private investigator to tail me. Can I sue?


No, you cannot. There is no “law of privacy” in Singapore. The most you can do is get an injunction (a court order preventing a person from doing something). But to get this done, you’ll need to show that the PI is causing harm to you, your lifestyle and/or your profession, or harassing you. If he is keeping a safe distance and not bothering you directly, there isn’t much you can do, as this is part of the services he provides.

Yes, You are right! If not SIRD will not grant a licence to them.

of course you can't its a free country

Great Response! If you make yourself and your actions available to be viewed and heard bythe public, generally the private investigator has a right to obtain that information.

Keep an eye whether is offended your legal boundary or breaching your privacy so that you can take against it.
