Her work permit was issued in Aug 2023, but Han hasn’t worked at KDL Elements at all.

Ending her mitigation, Han described Singapore as a multicultural and multiracial society and said she should have exercised tolerance and greater understanding.

“I’m sorry,” said Han as she apologised for the actions and words.
