According to the Police, a 30-year-old was arrested yesterday after he was caught using a forged doctor’s note to prove that he is eligible for dine-in.
The incident happened along Orchard Road on 1 September 2021.
The man visited a restaurant and tried to convince the staff with a fake doctor’s note. The staff who received the man noticed something wrong with the man’s document and rejected him from entry.
Although the man left quietly, the staff decided to report the incident to the Police. The Police took action right away and they were able to establish the identity of the man and placed him under arrest.
He will be charged today (September 15) in court for forgery.
Whoever commits forgery shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to 4 years, or with a fine, or with both.
The man might be the first person in Singapore for forging a COVID-19 related document.
