A 32-year-old auxiliary policewoman was sentenced to 4 weeks imprisonment after pleading guilty on 30 November to providing false information to the police.
She had falsely accused her colleague of raping her in 2020, before being found out after authorities investigated her phone, according to The Straits Times.
The woman was exchanging explicit messages in an intimate Whatsapp chat with her colleague in August 2020, planning to sleep with him.
She later lodged a police report the following month (September) against him, claiming that she was raped by the 36-year-old man.
She said in a statement to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) that the man had messaged her and invited her to his home.
She claimed that the man persistently called and messaged her even though she declined his request, and she said that she eventually agreed but she later reported that the man assaulted her after she went to his home.
Her phone was then searched and her offences then came to light when her messages were found by the authorities.
The woman then made another statement in December maintaining that she was raped, but the authorities then referred to the intimate messages between the two, and she then eventually admitted that she was not raped.
