Five Singaporeans are due to be charged on June 30, 2020 for breaching their Stay Home Notices (SHN) under the Infectious Diseases Act or the Infectious Diseases (Covid-19 – Stay Orders) Regulations 2020.
The five Singaporeans had been briefed about their SHNs upon returning to Singapore.
Went to work as security officer despite SHN
Rozman bin Abdul Rahman, 39, had arrived in Singapore from Indonesia on Mar. 20, 2020 and was served with an SHN for the period from Mar. 20 to Apr. 3.
However, he allegedly continued to work as a security officer throughout his SHN period except on Mar. 31.
Went to supermarket despite coughing & SHN

On Apr. 3 2020, even though she was coughing, she allegedly left her residence in Boon Lay and went to a supermarket located at Boon Lay Central.
Went to mother's place & shopping centre
Mohammad Alif, 26, and Ernie Batrisyia Binte Hamdi, 21, arrived in Singapore from Malaysia on Apr. 1, 2020, and were each served with an SHN for the period from Apr. 1 to Apr. 15.
Instead of returning to their declared place of residence in Jalan Bukit Merah immediately, they allegedly went to the residence of Ernie’s mother for dinner before returning home.
On Apr. 6, Ernie allegedly left her residence to visit a Post Office at Bukit Merah Central.
On the same day, she allegedly left her residence again with Alif to Anchorpoint Shopping Centre.
Went for a job interview without informing prospective employer of SHN
Adenan Bin Amat, 60, arrived in Singapore from Indonesia on Apr. 3, 2020 and was served with an SHN for the period from Apr. 3 to Apr. 17.

During the 14-day SHN period, Adenan did not stay at his declared place of residence.
Sometime on or before Apr. 10, he allegedly went for a job interview without informing his prospective employer that he was under an SHN.
They will be charged in court on Jun. 30, 2020. If convicted, each of them may be fined up to S$10,000, or up to six months' imprisonment, or both.
