SINGAPORE — A 34-year-old man was fined S$3,000 on Wednesday (Sept 30) for sending a vulgar message and two upskirt photographs of other women to a female traffic police officer.

Muhamad Idris Kairudin told the court that he had no money to pay the fine as he had just started work two weeks ago. 

He will serve two weeks in jail in lieu of the fine. 

On Wednesday, he pleaded guilty to a single charge of making insulting communication towards a public servant.

The officer, who was in charge of the traffic police’s warrant investigation team, reminded Idris through a WhatsApp text message on May 29 to pay his outstanding fines in relation to two traffic offences.

Court documents did not reveal details of the offences.

The officer said that she sent the message after her phone call to him went unanswered. Idris responded to her message at about 12.30am on May 30 with two upskirt photographs.

He also sent her a text message that read: “You crazy like p****… So what if you are traffic police… kiss my b**** you want?”

The officer lodged a police report at Sengkang Neighbourhood Police Centre on June 3.

Later that evening, Idris was arrested at Jurong West Street 65. The police seized a Samsung mobile phone from him.

State Prosecuting Officer M Ramasamy sought the fine imposed, saying Idris’ actions were “uncalled for”.

Idris said he had “nothing to say” in mitigation.

He could have been jailed up to a year, fined up to S$5,000 or both.
