A MAN lodged a false report to cover up for the loss of his work permit, the police said.
The 37-year-old claimed that four unknown men armed with a knife robbed him at about 8pm last Wednesday at Jalan Besar Stadium. They purportedly took off with his work permit and S$300 (RM780).
Police said he made up the story to cover up for the loss of his work permit – he lost it after a drinking session at Serangoon Road.
Investigations are ongoing.
Anyone convicted of knowingly giving a public servant false information, or abetting it, can face up to a year in jail, a maximum fine of S$5,000 (RM13,000), or both. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
