**Mods - I’m not sure what’s the current rule around posting articles from the ST. If this breaches any policy, will leave it to you to delete this post.

I think we've relaxed a bit now. As you are aware we had a problem a number of years ago. The way I'm looking at it is as long is it doesn't become a non-stop posting of heaps of articles. We should be okay.

It will probably be rejected when it comes up for renewal.

So how did they catch her? If nothing was really done by the ICA lady.

For me reading that article looks like she was even more stupid then just trying to bribe ica officer.

She wanted PR faster as she was pregnant, but from the article it took over a year, which is definitely longer than it takes to deliver a baby from the point you've found out you are pregnant.

The daughter and mother seem like just conned her money but did nothing as she was going to be accepted anyway. She gets upset and report them from cheating her money, but at the same time confesses that she bribed them.

Which would mean not just silly but stupid too. Best send her back to Malaysia, which I'm sure will happen at some point anyway.

Wouldn’t be surprised if her PR is revoked the moment she’s released from the prison, repatriated and barred from coming in again.
