Police NSman who allegedly submitted false pay claims to be charged with attempted cheating

A 36-year-old national serviceman serving in the Singapore Police Force (SPF) will be charged in court for submitting fraudulent make-up pay claims to the force.

The police said in a statement on Apr 2 that the man had submitted claims for attending in-camp-training (ICT) despite not completing his ICT.

He had also falsely claimed that during the period of his ICT, he was employed by a company which he was no longer employed at.

The police detected this on Nov 9, 2017.

If found guilty of attempted cheating, the suspect may be jailed for up to 10 years and/or fined.

The police said they will not hesitate to take action against anyone who wilfully submits false claims, and will ensure that offenders face the full brunt of the law.
