A 36-year-old man has been arrested for attempting to enter the Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) casino using his friend's identification document.

The suspect who had tried to enter the casino on February 16, had done so without his friend's knowledge and had also been under an exclusion order. He was detained by RWS security officers.

If charged in court, he can be convicted of entering the casino on false pretences and face a maximum fine of $10,000 or a jail term of three years, or both.

As an excluded person, he is also liable to a maximum fine of $10,000 or a maximum of one year in jail, or both.

For failing to pay the entry levy, he may have to pay a fine not exceeding $1,000 on top of the unpaid levy.
