SINGAPORE: A Malaysian woman has been detained for allegedly driving her car forcibly through both the Malaysian and Singapore checkpoints at Woodlands, presumably without any identification documents.
The 28-year-old divorcee, from Kampung Baharu, Bukit Jenun in Pendang, Kedah, is being detained at the Tanglin police station.
Malaysia High Commissioner to Singapore, Datuk Husni Zai Yaacob said their officers visited her after being notified by Singapore police.
"Her parents in Pendang have been notified," he told Bernama.
Husni Zai said the suspect had forced her way into the Singapore Customs, Immigration and Quarantine (CIQ) complex and disappeared without a trace in Singapore for three days, despite a nationwide police alert to track her down.
Upon her arrest, the Singapore police did not find any incriminating evidence or material on the woman.
He added she was currently warded at the Tan Tock Seng Hospital for observation.
"Our officers have visited Nurul to ensure her well-being and tried to communicate with her. So far, she has refused to speak to anyone.
"She is said to have suffered mental problems but we do not have details on that.
"Her family is now making preparations to visit her," he said, adding that she had also refused to speak to her parents via telephone.
According to Husni Zai, the suspect was not stopped either by Malaysian or Singapore authorities at the Woodlands checkpoint.
"She passed through the Malaysian checkpoint without any problem, while she crashed through the security barrier at the Singapore CIQ," he said, adding that the High Commission would give the suspect the necessary consular assistance to ensure her rights and well-being were protected. - Bernama
