ICA officer jailed for forging medical certificates
An Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) officer was sentenced to four months' jail on Friday for forging medical certificates.
Mohammad Saqib Mohd Ghalib, 34, a staff sergeant, had admitted to five charges of fraudulently making the MCs issued by Kao & Tan Family Medical Centre & Surgery by cancelling the period of his MCs and altering the dates without lawful authority.
He committed the offences at Telok Blangah Post Office between December 2010 and March last year.
A district court heard that Sadiq, attached to the Woodlands checkpoint for the last seven years, would tell the doctors at the clinic that they would need to stamp and sign on the MC three times so that his office would believe that it was genuine.
