Further checks revealed the man had no original identity documents or travel documents in his possession. He was apprehended for suspected immigration offences.

ICA takes a serious view on attempts to enter or depart Singapore illegally. Under the Immigration Act 1959, the penalties for illegal entry are fine of up to $1,000, or a jail term of up to six months, or both.
