Ten teenagers aged between 17 and 18 are being investigated for three separate cases of forgery after attempting to enter clubs using forged stamps.
Between August and September this year, police received reports of individuals attempting to enter public entertainment outlets without paying entry fees. Several of these teenagers also did not meet the legal age requirement to enter these outlets.
Yahoo News Singapore understands that the clubs in question are Zouk and Get Juiced, both at Clarke Quay. In one case that occurred at Zouk, it is believed that forged entry stamps were illegally made, sold and used. In two other cases, it is believed that the suspects transferred the entry stamps among each other through hand contact. Investigations are ongoing.
“Members of the public are advised to pay for 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 the such outlets,” said the police in a news release on Wednesday (11 October).
Anyone found guilty of forgery for the purpose of cheating faces up to 10 years’ jail and a fine. Anyone found guilty of intentionally aiding or abetting the same offence faces the same punishment.
