A Lankan woman who sold her passport and then reported it as lost was jailed for six months in Singapore after pleading guilty today.

A Sri Lankan woman identified as R.S. Maddumage, 38, sold her passport to another Sri Lankan woman along Serangoon Road for $600.

Six days later on Wednesday, Dec 29, she was arrested when she went to report its loss to the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA). The court was not told how ICA got wind of the sale.

But the court heard that her passport was in demand because of its social visit pass valid till Jan 22, 2011. Maddumage pleaded guilty on Friday and was jailed six months for allowing her passport to be used by another person for travel or identification.

The woman, who bought the passport, is to be dealt with on Monday. (Straits times)

    Disgrace to Sri Lanka. On her return, the passport should be revoked.
