Four Malaysians Arrested for Attempting to Smuggle a Woman out of Singapore Illegally

On 28 February 2019 at around 7.45 pm, Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) officers stopped a departing Malaysia-registered car for checks at the Woodlands Checkpoint. The car was driven by a 42-year-old Malaysian woman and carried another female Malaysian passenger. While performing checks, the officers found a third woman hiding in the car boot. The woman did not have any travel or identification document in her possession.

In the midst of investigating the detection, ICA officers noticed another Malaysia-registered car at the post-immigration area, with its engine still running.

Suspecting that the idling car was involved with the one hiding the fugitive and might attempt to escape, the vigilant officers swiftly activated a lockdown of the checkpoint at 8.03pm. The lockdown was lifted at 8.10pm once the male driver and the female passenger of the idling car had been secured. Preliminary investigations revealed that the drivers and passengers of both cars, who were all Malaysians, were in cahoots. They were immediately placed under arrest together with the woman found hiding in the car boot. The illegal passenger was established to be a Myanmar national.
