SINGAPORE: Han Feizi (韩菲紫), the 29-year-old Chinese national woman who reportedly verbally abused nurses and police officers at a hospital, pleaded guilty in court on Wednesday (25 Oct).

Appearing via video-link, she confessed to five charges, which included using criminal force and causing alarm to a security officer at her condominium, employing abusive language towards a hospital employee, creating public nuisance, and providing false information in her work permit application.

Three additional charges were taken into account during sentencing.

She was sentenced to five weeks and five days’ imprisonment, along with a fine of S$600 (US$438).

The defendant was previously charged with six counts:

  • One count of being a public nuisance, which carries a fine of up to S$2,000.
  • Two counts of using abusive language against a public service worker or public servant, punishable with a jail term of up to 12 months or a fine of up to S$5,000, or both.
  • Two counts of assaulting or using criminal force on a security officer, with a potential jail term of up to two years or a fine of up to S$7,500, or both.
  • Intentionally causing harassment, which can result in a jail term of up to 12 months or a fine of up to S$5,000, or both.

She faced additional two charges on Tuesday for providing false information in her work permit application, claiming to be a secretary while working as a freelance hostess at various locations in the country.

During sentencing, the judge condemned her behavior as “loutish,” “belligerent,” and aggressive, emphasizing that there was no justification for her actions.

Drunk incident at the Sail

According to the prosecution, on October 3, 2023, around 10 p.m., a security supervisor at The Sail at Marina Bay, Marina Boulevard, alerted the police about a “drunk resident” needing aid.

Han was discovered squatting in a common area, attributing her condition to alcohol consumption.

While being assisted back to her unit, Han became aggressive while waiting for the lift, pushing the security supervisor and verbally abusing him once inside. She shouted a vulgarity at him at least five times.

Altercation at Singapore General Hospital

Another incident occurred at Singapore General Hospital around 2:35 a.m. on October 10, 2023, where Han alleged a private hire vehicle ran over her foot.

While in a wheelchair, she began to shout, claiming that the driver had deserted her.

In an act of defiance, she threw a mask on the floor and resorted to using vulgar language. Han acknowledged that she had consumed alcohol prior to the incident.

Han’s arrest occurred on October 11, 2023, and on the same day, the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) received information from the police regarding potential violations of the Employment of Foreign Manpower Act.

Further probe unveils work permit application after rejection of student pass

According to court documents presented by the prosecutors from the Attorney-General’s Chambers and the Ministry of Manpower, Han submitted her application to work as a clerk for KDL Elements in August this year, subsequent to her rejected student pass application.

Despite declaring her intention to hold a clerk position, she had never actually undertaken such a role.

The MOM prosecutor emphasized that Han’s primary objective in entering Singapore was “to have fun.”

Furthermore, she completed the work permit application “without making an effort to understand its English content.”

She arrived in Singapore in July 2023 under in-principle approval, and her work permit was issued in August. However, she has not engaged in any work at KDL Elements to date.

In court, Han requested clemency, expressing her deep remorse and offering her sincerest apologies to the court through a Mandarin interpreter.

She explained her distress following the accident and her lack of familiarity with Singaporean law.

“This is my first time travelling overseas and I didn’t expect that I would be caught in this situation.”

Furthermore, she emphasized the emotional burden of her family’s health struggles.

Han acknowledged her mistakes and regretted her actions, acknowledging the need for greater understanding and tolerance in a multicultural society.

“I should not have shouted in public, I should not have used those words,” said Han, adding in English: “I’m sorry.”

Viral video shows altercation between the Chinese woman and police officer over hospital incident

In the early hours of October 10th, the defendant claimed she sustained a foot injury in a car accident.

She engaged in a confrontation with a nurse at Singapore General Hospital, reportedly using abusive language and refusing to cooperate with the investigation.

The woman in question uploaded videos of her interactions with the investigating officers on the widely used short video platform TikTok, sparking widespread discussions and reactions.

In the video recordings, the woman claimed that she had been waiting for three hours at the hospital due to her involvement in a car accident. She further alleged that a nurse informed her she couldn’t receive medical treatment at the hospital because she wasn’t a Singaporean citizen.

When the police officers sought to record her statement regarding the use of inappropriate language towards one of the hospital’s nurses, the woman refused to provide a clear response.

Instead, she insisted that the police officer should question the nurse and persisted in her request to be taken to the police station while demanding that the female Investigation Officer (IO) reveal her identity.

At one juncture, she even attempted to seize the officer’s identification card while continuing to document the incident, which led to a stern warning from the officer.

In a follow-up post on Tuesday evening, the woman disclosed that she is a long-term pass holder, and mentioned that she had undergone an X-ray examination and was provided with some medication.

The woman claimed that the driver who hit me fled the scene, unwilling to face the issue or take responsibility.

She emphasized her insistence on having the officers identify themselves because she wanted to prevent the driver from providing “unfavourable evidence” that might diminish the impact of the car accident on the driver.

Authorities intervened in early morning disturbance at SGH involving the woman

On 12 Oct, the Singapore Police Force (SPF) responded to media inquiries by issuing a statement.

The statement outlined that they had received a report at approximately 2:35 am on Tuesday, involving a 29-year-old Chinese national woman seeking medical attention for an injured foot.

It was reported that she was causing a disturbance and inconvenience to the public due to its loud nature. Additionally, she was accused of verbally abusing a nurse before the arrival of the police.

Around 3:15 a.m., two investigating officers (IO) arrived at the scene and initiated a conversation with the woman.

The police stated that the two IO identified themselves as hailing from the Central Police Division and were accompanied by uniformed police officers.

During the course of their conversation, the woman declined to provide a statement, and at one point, she used strong language in Mandarin directed at one of the IO.

“While recording, she attempted to take one of the investigation officers’ security pass. The investigation officer firmly told her not to touch her pass,” the statement added.

Given that the woman was awaiting medical treatment, the officers decided to allow her to complete her treatment first, with plans to follow up later.

Work Permit violation

The police noted that this wasn’t the first time they had dealt with a case involving the woman.

Earlier on Oct 3, they received a call for help from the security team of a condominium located along Marina Boulevard.

“The woman was allegedly intoxicated, and the security team assisted in escorting her up to her unit. ”

“The woman then allegedly pushed one of the security officers on his shoulder and pulled his tie. She also purportedly used insulting and abusive words towards the security officer,” the police said.

Despite her compliance upon the police’s arrival, they initiated an investigation into the alleged offences committed against the security officer.

During the investigation, the police found reason to suspect that the woman may have violated the conditions of her work permit and referred this matter to the Ministry of Manpower.

It is 5 weeks and 5days jail.

Once again MOM have been caught pants down.Those idiots don’t seem to care unless they loose their jobs. The man in charge of MOM can you please wake up and do the needful before it’s too late😡😡😡😡 Whatever’s happening at MOM are just unacceptable!!!

The issue is not so much as a short jail term and a pathetic fine, THE ISSUE IS THE LOOP HOLE IN MOM WORK PERMIT SYSTEM THAT CONTINUALLY HAD BEEN FOR DECADES ALLOW SUCH KINDS TO EXPLOIT THE SYSTEM WITH MOM OFFICIALS SLEEPING ON THEIR JOBS.

The Kayu Son’s blatant open-legs policy sure adds more “vibrancy” to SG. Yes, the pappies will again say tru-local Singaporeans are useless, cannot develop such unique “talents” to make SG remains competitive. Hence, again, they argue the urgent need to import such talents for the good and progress of SG.

why involving xi jinping?

How is she remorseful when she lied directly at the judge by saying this was her first trip abroad when it was pointed out that she had traveled to Singapore 4 times previously. And yet she was given such a light sentence!

Why is she being jailed? Aren’t taxpayers being punished enough? Book her a one-way ticket back to a Mainland Chinese city of her choice. Xi Jinping will welcome her with open arms….or something else.

Edit: Perhaps her lenient sentence suggests that she has “dirt” on certain people. An obvious honey pot / trap sent to “ensnare” those with certain “itches.” That would explain her conceit as well.

There is no justification in the approval of her work permit as they are many Singaporeans who can do secretarial work. Unless MOM approved it for her special skills. Money Launderers, gamblers and high spenders would need her services. She seems to have a drinking problem so she should have been sent to a psychiatrist ward not to jail. Our regulators at all levels are being made a laughing stock by the third world. This skill is beyond Singaporeans. CCS must be the worst Minister in charge of the civil service in our history.

Headlines should read ‘ High Class Chicken Put Back In Cage’
Now see guailan or not after come out. FT Garbage!

“Work application permit read as for secretary…” good grief. Is this how the Govt service under PAP Administration’s instructions work, no need to check and verify info given?

PAP as a Political party pay the Work Permits Dept salaries OR funded by tax payers money? Or PAP Administration felt they ARE NOT needed to account for citizens money spent?

They authorities conduct so many probe , just to come out with whatever charges they can come up with, did they probe her cunt to see HOW MANY CUSTOMERS she had, while claiming to be working as a ‘clerk’?
Or the authorites cannot tell, given that some of her HIGH CLASS CLIENTELE ,LITERALLY CAME FROM THOSE IN THE RANKS OF THE ELITE AND PAP CRONIES THEMSELVES!!
What a small world indeed!!😆😆😆😆🤣🤣🤣🤣😆😆😆
