The parents of the Malaysian school teacher, who is remanded for psychiatric assessment after she was charged with criminal trespass, visited her at the Institute of Mental Health (IMH) on Saturday afternoon.

Deputy High Commissioner Kamsiah Kamaruddin told The Straits Times that her parents, who have been in Singapore since Thursday, met with Nurul Ruhana Ishak at about 2.45 pm.

Nurul, 28, had allegedly slipped past immigration officers at the Woodlands Checkpoint last week by tailgating a car. An alarm was raised two minutes later, and the arrival zone locked down for half an hour, but her Malaysian-registered car had gone by then.

On Monday, she tailgated a taxi for an hour. The cabby called the police and was directed to drive into the Police Cantonment Complex. There, Nurul managed to give the authorities the slip again.
