Singapore — A 44-year-old man has been sentenced to jail after being caught smoking in a void deck, pushing one of the officers who confronted him, and then offering a bribe of S$12.

According to a report in Today OnlineChinese national Liu Huibin  was caught smoking in a housing block void deck in Punggol by two Certis Cisco officers on Jan 27.

The officers had approached Liu in order to give him a court notice for his offence of smoking in a location where it is banned. He tried to avoid them by walking away but they stopped him. However, because he refused to comply with their requests to provide his personal details, the officers summoned the police.

Before the police arrived, Liu attempted to escape, grabbing the wrist of one of the officers and shoving her shoulder — a move that left a bruise on the officer’s wrist. Liu even offered to bribe both officers with S$12 to let him go. The officers, however, did not take the bribe.

Ang Mo Kio police then arrived at the scene.

On July 9, Liu was charged under the Penal Code with voluntarily hurting a public officer in order to stop her from carrying out her duties. He was also charged with offering a bribe to the officers under the Prevention of Corruption Act.

On Wednesday (July 22), Liu was sentenced to a total of two months and two weeks in jail for the offences.

The two officers who did not accept Liu’s bribe were commended by both the police and the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB). /TISG
