Security breaches, which led to a Malaysian woman slipping past Woodlands Checkpoint and driving into a ministry's compound later, will be discussed in Parliament when it sits on Monday.

MPs have filed five questions on the case, which hit the headlines in recent weeks.

Mr Hri Kumar Nair (Bishan-Toa Payoh GRC) and Nominated MP Eugene Tan are seeking updates on investigations into how Malaysian Nurul Ruhana Ishak, 27, had managed to drive through the checkpoint without clearance on January 18 and evade the police for three days.

She was eventually nabbed at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs compound which she had tresspassed. No passport or identification was found on her during her arrest.
