'Married' to Indian national at Tanglin Halt flat

According to a copy of the civil marriage certificate that Mr Mohamad Norizuan Shazali paid $50 to obtain, he is married to a woman who holds an Indian passport.

The names and identity card numbers of two Singaporean witnesses are also on the certificate.

The solemnisation was made at an address in Tanglin Halt. When The New Paper went to that address, it turned out to be a vacant HDB flat.

VACANT

A neighbour who gave his name as Mr Salleh, 40, a logistics supervisor, said the flat had been vacant for at least two years.

He said an Indian couple in their 60s used to own the flat, but the husband told him they were moving out as they could not afford the monthly payments.

Mr Salleh recalled seeing two men in their 20s to 30s living in the unit for a short period with the couple before they moved out.
