The charges against Malaysian teacher Nurul Rohana Ishak, who was caught after she slipped past immigration officers at Woodlands Checkpoint, were withdrawn by the prosecution on Friday on account of her mental illness.
The 27-year-old was instead issued with a conditional warning not to commit similar offences again in the future. The court heard on Friday that she has accepted the warning.
She was initially facing three charges: Criminal trespass, failing to present her passport for examination, and failing to stop her vehicle. A psychiatric assessment on Feb 21, however, had found her to be suffering from schizophrenia and unfit to make a plea.
