The Circuit Breaker hasn’t exactly done much good for non-homebodies like myself.
It’s no wonder that people have been sneaking out of their homes to satisfy their dying needs for social interaction.
But we must tell you that a woman has recently been charged for just that.
Woman Charged For Non-Essential Activities During Circuit Breaker
Today, 30-year-old, Renukha Arumugam, was charged in court after it was found that she had left her house twice to meet her boyfriend during the Circuit Breaker period.
She faced two charges for meeting individuals not from her household for a social purpose, and another two for leaving her house without a reasonable excuse, and one count for not wearing a mask properly when outside.
The court documents did not specify how the 30-year-old was caught, because let’s face it: we’re all wondering if someone had snitched on her.
Read on and you’ll understand.
Had Met Up With Boyfriend and Friend For Social Purposes
On 12 April at about 3am, she left her Jurong West flat to meet up with her boyfriend at a stone bench in front of Block 713, Clementi West Street 2.
On 17 April, she left her house again at 12.30 pm to meet her boyfriend in the same area at block 713, Clementi West Street 2.
The accused was also caught for not wearing her mask over her nose and mouth later on on that same day.
The police accounted that her fifth charge was issued after she had met up with a friend from a different household at 10.50 am on 29 April at Block 433, Jurong West Street 41.
The police said that the 30-year-old had met up with her friend to go to a supermarket.
Ms Renukha was apologetic and said that she did not intend to break the law.
“I’m unemployed, so if you are going to give me a heavy fine, I don’t think I can pay,” she said.
The accused will return to court on 10 June to plead guilty for her offences. She is bound to face a maximum jail time of six months and is subject to a fine of up to S$10,000.
Now, she’s probably the very first person who’s been charged for dating.
What a world we live in now.
