SG Man Tries To Sneak Into M’sia By Hiding Inside Myvi Car Boot, Gets Caught & Jailed

Nice try, bro.
Whenever one wants to cross the border into another country, he/she must possess valid documents to prove that they are not trying to enter illegally or for nefarious purposes.

A Singaporean man had his luck run out after he was caught hiding inside the boot of a Myvi in an attempt to quietly sneak his way into Malaysia, resulting in jail time and subsequent deportation.

Speaking to reporters at a press conference today, Johor Customs Department director Aminul Izmeer Mohd Sohaimi said the incident took place at around 3.30pm on Dec 13 last year at  the Bangunan Sultan Iskandar Customs, Immigration and Quarantine (CIQ) complex.

Just as the Myvi was about to pass through the CIQ complex, officers stopped it from proceeding further as they noticed something was amiss.

The car was stopped for inspection after it looked a bit heavier at the back. When we opened the car boot, we found a man inside.

“The man had no travel documents with him during his arrest,” he said as quoted by The Star.

Two Malaysian women were also arrested by officers during the inspection.

Paid RM10K to be ‘smuggled’ into M’sia

Aminul Izmeer said investigations found that the Singaporean man, who is in his 50s, had paid the two women SGD3,000 (RM10,555) to be brought into Malaysia illegally.

China Press reported that the Singaporean was unable to secure a passport back in his country as he had evaded military service.

The two Malaysian women were charged under Article 26J of the Anti-Trafficking in Persons and Smuggling of Migrants (Atipsom) Act 2007, while the Singaporean man was charged under the Immigration Act 1959/63 and jailed for three months.

However, he only served a reduced jail sentence and was later deported back to Singapore in February.

Recently, a Singaporean man was detained for overstaying in Malaysia for a whopping 13 years:
