Jailed: Man who lodged a false police report about having incestuous sex with his sister
For wasting police resources, a 26-year-old man has been sentenced to two weeks in jail for lodging false reports that included accusing his older sister of having sex with him when he was 16.
It was all apparently done out of revenge, according to the court report by Channel NewsAsia — the man’s sister had issues with his fiancée, who had been living in their house at the time.
The first false police report was lodged at about 4am on Mar 31, 2016, when the man and his fiancée alleged that his sister — older by two years — had threatened them with a knife the day before. The man claimed that his sister demanded that they leave the house for good, and that she said “I will kill you and I will stab you”. This was apparently due to the sister being upset that the fiancée went to the house to collect her belongings.

Four hours later, the fiancée called the police hotline and told them that an ex-girlfriend was causing problems in the man’s house. When cops did come by to investigate, the man subsequently told an officer that his sister had sex with him in her bedroom when he was 16 years old.
Police investigations revealed that the fiancée did not visit the house on Mar 30, and that the sister hadn’t made any threats at all, according to CNA. However, she came under serious investigation for incest and was even called in for interviews on four occasions.
It was only six months later that the man came clean and admitted that he lodged phony reports. He also confessed that he did so because his older sister objected to his relationship with the fiancée, and the two came up with a plan to implicate her. Court documents also stated that the fiancée had previously been asked by the man’s parents to stop living in their house.
A psychological report by the Institute of Mental Health revealed that the man had a mild intellectual disability, and was prone to be easily influenced by others.
As for his fiancée, the case against her is still pending, CNA reported.
He could have been jailed for a year and/or fined up to S$5,000 for giving false information to a police officer.
