Malaysian in checkpoint breach may face more charges

THE 64-year-old Malaysian man who allegedly breached a security barrier at Woodlands Checkpoint is likely to face more charges under the Customs Act.

This was revealed by the prosecution yesterday when Tan Chu Seng was further remanded for another two weeks for psychiatric assessment. Tan, a delivery driver, is represented by S. Radakrishnan who took over from his previous lawyer Jeffrey Ong.

Tan had been accused of committing a rash act and vandalism when he allegedly drove his Singapore-registered car recklessly, causing injury to auxiliary police officer Safie Mahrom at about 4pm on March 8.

The Singapore permanent resident is said to have damaged the cat-claw security barrier when he drove into it.

This after he had apparently driven through the checkpoint after being stopped for a boot check. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
