An employee of the Singapore Police Force yesterday became the latest to be charged over a motor insurance scam involving a staged accident.

Technical support officer Ruhaima Sinin, 35, was charged with two counts of cheating for allegedly conspiring with her husband Mohamad Eznillah Mohamed Razali, 34, in the scam.

Ruhaima was accused of cheating NTUC Income Insurance Co-operative by making claims amounting to $21,887.

According to court documents, Mohamad Eznillah had made an accident statement claiming that he and his wife were involved in a three-vehicle collision along Sungei Kadut Drive at about 4.15pm on Oct 9, 2010. Ruhaima later instructed law firm Catherine Lim & Co to file a claim for property damage to a car registered under her name.
