SINGAPORE – The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) on Friday (20 November) said it has revoked the work passes of four people who breached their Stay-Home Notice (SHN) requirements in the past three months.

“They had left their places of residence without valid reasons and without seeking MOM’s permission during the period of SHN,” the ministry said.

Three of the culprits are work permit holders while one is an S-Pass holder.

MOM said two of the culprits were detected leaving their SHN residences via their MOM-issued smartwatches.

Meanwhile, MOM was alerted to the other two SHN breaches via a member of the public and an employer. These two culprits were serving their SHNs at dedicated facilities and were not required to wear the smartwatch.

The ministry said it has revoked 44 work passes for breach of SHN requirements since 1 May.
