A bizzare case of a PR submitting a forged educational transcript?

On Tuesday (14 Jan), a press release from the Immigration and Checkpoint Authority (ICA) said that a Philippine national was jailed for 7 weeks’ for immigration offences. This was after she had produced a fake diploma and transcript to support an application for PR status for herself and her daughter.

38 year-old De Luna Noriza Dancel had submitted documents purportedly from the Centro Escolar University during her PR application in 2008 & 2009. Subsequent checks with the university revealed that she did not study there as claimed, and she was subsequently arrested by the ICA on 25 Oct 2017.

ICA said in their release that they take “a very serious view of persons who provide false information or conceal material facts during their applications for any Singapore immigration facility.”

Not the first brush with the law

In any case, this does not appear to be her first brush with the law. In 2012, De Luna was charged and fined $50,000 for setting up and running 2 unlicensed employment agencies.

In July 2010 – then described as a PR in the media report -  she was issued a licence by the Ministry of Manpower to operate an employment agency, RSD Consultancy & Services. Even though she had an existing agency license, she proceeded to set up another employment agency – NWCD Consultancy & Services – without a license. This was run by her husband, who was then on a social visit pass.

In July 2011, the license of RSD Consultancy & Services’ had expired but De Luna did not renew it as she was being investigated by MOM. Despite ongoing investigations, she nonetheless proceeded to set up a second unlicensed agency, Impact Manpower, using a nominee director and applicant.

In any case, it seems that De Luna’s earlier application for PR status was successful given that the 2012 media report described her as being a “PR”. Whilst being a PR, it is equally curious that her forgery came to light only after 8 years, and the subsequent charge took more than 2 years. Was her PR not revoked after the fine?

What do you think?

    We must open our eyes & u/s that this govt is juz putting up a pretentious fake wayang show… becoz election is coming soon!!

    Why, despite after so many years, then do this govt, especialy useless MOM, point out these various companies that practice unfair hiring?

    There’re already hundreds of companies in SG, that prefer hire mediocre foreigners… over local citizens. And our MOM ( bloody big entire ministry) chose to close both eyes & do nothing… until now, becoz election is coming

    We must not be fooled by superficial pretentious wayang action by this govt !!
    We, local native citizens, are already becomin strangers in our own country, and soon, we wil become the minority , flooded & drown by influx of average foreign workers & their dependants!

    What hope do we have then? With a clueless out-of-touch 4G wayang jokers… n LHL enjoyin million$$ after he step down

    VTO we must!!

  • Crooked PAP:

    A bizzare case ?

    There are so many cases of cheating undetected by the FT-friendly Govt.

    Becos there has been overwhelming condemnation from Singaporeans on the uncontrolled opening of floodgates to allow cheap FTs from 3rd world countries, Govt is trying to find a few scapegoats to show they are actually busy scrutinizing every FT getting PR or citizenship.

    There is too much dirt in CECA, PRC and Pinoys who have already been accepted.
    That’s why the Govt is withholding the breakdown of New Citizens and PR, rather the clubbing all of them as “Residents”.

    Thanks Pritam for putting PAP on the spot. Josephine was cornered and she could not handle his questioning, as her colleagues came to support her.

    Useless MOM Minister. Mind you, she was only an HR Manager not long ago but don’t know how she became a Minister so soon, with such low IQ.

    I have a feeling that many (foreigners) are not caught or yet to be filtered out by the authorities. To the foreign trashes, SG is a goldmine, and pay and pay like this sort of cheap talent from 3rd world countries. The only talent they have is outsmart SG with false & fake documents, and hoodwink the civil servants.

  • Financially Speaking:

    How is it that the S’pore govt classify the incoming foreign cohorts as “Foreign Talent”. Yet they dare submit fake or forged academic credentials? Something is very wrong here.

    Whomever are the govt agencies processing the fake documents, they must have been sleeping! The documents were submitted on 2008/09 for PR application but the forgery only came to light when she was subsequently arrested by the ICA on 25 Oct 2017.

    The most damning statement, “Whilst being a PR, it is equally curious that her forgery came to light only after 8 years, and the subsequent charge took more than 2 years (to process).”

    The culprit, De Luna Noriza Dancel was also a convicted law-breaker in S’pore being charged & convicted of running 2 unlicensed employment agencies. In addition, she allowed her husband to work for her company in S’pore while on a Social Visitor pass.

    Fantastic border security & equally diligent labour enforcement we have in S’pore!

  • opposition dude:

    The way I see it there are just too many aliens to be caught. Sure, you publish in the newspaper a case or two but those who are under investigation currently are not published.

    It also shows that whoever is investigating cases is working real slow to the tune of years and years. Whether it’s because they are inefficient or whatever other reasons only they will know.

    When you just give out PR like there is no tomorrow you naturally invite people of dubious nature to apply. And when you are maintaining the numbers at 500k yearly instead of reducing them you aren’t even bothered to resolve the issue.

    Totally agree with @GetOut. Nothing but election wayang. There is a great market for fake degrees and other legal documents – like marriage, BC, etc. for anyone to be anyone else.

    After GE back to normal – this lady and Ramesh from JP Morgan will be invited to bring their village people to $G to work in various FT positions.

    All FTs getting bolder cause someone encouraged them this land belongs to everyone. Lelong lelong, cheap sales, cheap sales.

    And their words like “take a serious view” has become a joke amongst the FTs.

    Flood gate open legs so many years now then after this case is surfaced then take a serious view. Before no take it seriously after locals kept warning them for so many years.

  • Jman:

    Many of the existing rules and regulations are written on the assumption and basis that people are honest and do the right thing. And with that assumption comes lax enforcement and occasional checks.

    We are having all kinds of problems because this sort of assumption doesn’t hold in an environment that is excessively competitive and with high pressures on living costs. And this amounts to poor judgment on the part of the Government.

    On the other hand, people do not like enforcement. But we will have to live with this, because this is the way many of the foreigners and locals here behave. This includes corporations (especially the cowboy tech companies).

    This (the checking of fake qualifications) is the responsibility of both the government and the companies. Both have failed miserably in that aspect, and will be held accountable for their actions. Oh, and we Singaporeans are cowards? Well. We will be more than happy to disappoint you.

    Now then we know pinoys also know how to fool MOM besides the CECA indians and Bangalas. So far, MOM has not caught any fake degrees Malaysians or PRCs teaching in our schools. We won’t be surprised if there’s one to be exposed by public. Our gov is extremely strict to local Singaporeans, but very liberal to fake degrees FTs.

    aiyoh. why say like that ? tiring process to do the expose (maybe your own company and fellow FT colleagues) if the white monkey idiots are openly in support of FTs and 6.9m or 10m open-leg policy and the white idiots hold the purse strings (taxpayers money ?) to engage their own team of white idiotic IB gang to shout at daft sinkies as ‘xenophobic’ and all sorts of labels – and these white monkey gang know your identity (need to be a real person for your ‘expose’ to be credible) and you do not know them (collective white idiotic anonymity) for ‘attacking’ you, if they feel like it ?

    and the white idiotic law & resources are all stacked against daft sinkies who don’t have much resources (need to make their own small ends to survive) to ‘fight’ (need time & evidence and all the follow up on the process) ? and the process can be deliberately made tedious by the white monkey idiots to ”’discourage”’ your effort ????

  • SingaporeAhSeng:

    The Singapore police must investigate from before Year 2008, when she starts applying PR.

    After she got her PR in 2012, Police should traced how the PR certificate allows her daughters and other relatives to study , and subsidized by our tax monies, and the HDB she bought must be return back.

    Police should traced back all the links, and prosecute this PR, so that other forgeries people will not do it again.

    7 weeks jail is nothing, compared to all the benefits she had already obtained.
