SINGAPORE: A man was charged on Tuesday (Apr 7) under recently enacted regulations for breaching his stay-home notice, in the first charging of its kind.
According to the charge sheet, Palanivelu Ramasamy, 48, was given a stay-home notice on Mar 21 this year by an Immigration and Checkpoints Authority officer.
However, Palanivelu allegedly left his Block 105 Towner Road flat on Mar 30 without reasonable excuse. He is accused of using public transport to travel to and from Goldhill Plaza to deliver newspapers.
He is set to plead guilty later this month.
For breaching a stay-home order under the Infectious Diseases (COVID-19 - Stay Orders) Regulations 2020, he could be jailed for up to six months, fined a maximum S$10,000, or both.
On Tuesday afternoon, a man accused of breaching his stay-home notice for bak kut teh soup is set to be charged.
