10 teens under investigation for trying to enter nightclubs with fake entry stamps

10 suspects aged between 17 and 19 are under police investigation for three cases of forgery for the purpose of cheating at public entertainment outlets.

In a media release, the police said that between August and September this year, they received three separate reports about individuals who attempted to enter public entertainment outlets using forged entry stamps, in order to avoid paying entry fees.

Preliminary investigations revealed that forged entry stamps of a public entertainment outlet were illegally made, sold and used during one of the cases.

In two other reported cases, it is believed that the genuine entry stamps were duplicated and transferred among the suspects via skin contact.

The Straits Times understands that Zouk is the outlet involved in both instances, while another nightclub, Get Juiced, was involved in the case where the stamps were transferred via skin contact. Both clubs are located in River Valley Road.

Members of the public are advised to pay the entry fee and obtain the official entry stamp only from the public entertainment outlets. Individuals who do not fulfil the minimum age requirement should not attempt to enter such outlets.

Any person found guilty of forgery for the purpose of cheating under Section 468 of the Penal Code may be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to 10 years, and shall also be liable to a fine. 

Anyone who intentionally aid in, or abet the commission of the said offence may also be liable for the same punishment.
