MOM shared that Han pleaded guilty to the first charge and was sentenced to three weeks’ jail. The second charge was taken into consideration for sentencing.

The ministry also said that Han’s work pass will be revoked following her conviction.

In addition, she will be permanently barred from working in Singapore.

For making false declarations in her application, Han could’ve been fined up to S$20,000, given a jail term of up to two years, or both.

Apologises for actions during sentencing

During her sentencing earlier this week, Han said that her only reason for entering Singapore “was for fun”.

She had worked as a freelance hostess, despite indicating in her application that she had applied as a clerk.

However, she apologised for her actions, saying it was her first time in a foreign land.

She also claimed that she was unfamiliar with the laws in Singapore and said that her actions were “uncalled for”.
