A 38-year-old woman suspected for her involvement in multiple cheating cases, has been arrested by the Police.

Several victims from travel agencies reported to the Police in November, saying that they were cheated by a woman who had purchased large numbers of Universal Studios, Zoo, Adventure Cove and Sea Aquarium tickets.

Police stated in its press release that the suspect had convinced the victims to release the tickets to her by informing that she had scheduled bank transfers for the payments of tickets to them.

However, the victims did not receive the payments and could not locate the suspect thereafter.

Responding to the reports, police officers from Bedok Division conducted extensive ground enquiries and arrested the suspect on 1 December. The location of her arrest was not disclosed.

The suspect will be brought to Court on 3 December 2016, with the charge of cheating under Section 420 of the Penal Code, Chapter 224.

If found guilty, the suspect could be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend up to 10 years, and she also could be fined.

Human rights lawyer M Ravi urges Singaporeans to speak out against Tangaraju Suppiah’s execution

Human rights lawyer M Ravi has called on Singaporeans to speak out against the impending execution of Tangaraju Suppiah, a Singaporean convicted and sentenced to death in 2018 for abetting by conspiracy to traffic 1,017.9g of cannabis. In a Facebook live video, Ravi highlighted several troubling aspects of Tangaraju’s case, including his lack of access to an interpreter and legal counsel during his trial. Ravi also pointed out that Tangaraju did not have access to counsel when his statements were taken, and he suggested that Tangaraju’s case was indicative of broader issues within Singapore’s legal system. Ravi called on Singaporean society to speak out against the execution and argued that it was incumbent on all citizens to stand together to end the practice of the death penalty. He further stressed that the execution would not bring any closure and would be meaningless as the death penalty does not deter drug trafficking. Ravi called on Singaporeans to write to their MPs or the ministers, even the Prime Minister, to stop the execution. Tangaraju’s execution is scheduled to take place on 26 April.
