Police say all 53 foreign workers actively involved in the Little India riot have been repatriated

All 53 foreign workers who had knowingly joined or continued to participate in the Little India riot despite police orders to disperse have been deported. 

And another four will be similarly deported tonight. 

In total, 57 foreign workers will be deported in connection with the riot. 

Police Commissioner Ng Joo Hee says all 57 received stern police warnings and will not be allowed to enter Singapore again. 

Mr Ng told a news conference that 200 foreign workers who were also involved in the riot - but in a passive manner - will be issued with formal police advisories this Sunday. 

They will not be prosecuted nor deported, and will be allowed to continue working in Singapore. 

But they must not get involved in activities that draw adverse attention to themselves again.
