Is this allowed or must he/she serve full 14 days. OK?

Well you can leave but you might not be allowed back...https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/ ... pped-of-pr
This guy had failed to comply with the SHN before trying to leave so slightly different, but I think they'll want you to stay the full 14 days with no symptoms before you try going anywhere else.
