Flight steward jailed for bribing S’pore cop he molests
A flight steward with Qatar Airways outraged the modesty of an undercover policeman in a toilet in The Verge shopping centre at Serangoon Road at 2 p.m. on March 21.
When placed under arrest, Rinosh Joseph Noble, 33, tried to bribe his way out of trouble. He offered S$100 (US$78.26) to the cop and two other officers who were on anti-crime rounds at the shopping centre.
On Tuesday, Noble, an Indian national, was jailed a month and fined S$10,000 for offering the bribe. He had received a stern police warning for molesting the officer.
His lawyer, Subhas Anandan, said that his client was an exceptionally talented individual, having graduated with a first class honors degree in engineering in India. The court also heard that Noble was a very good singer and had qualified for vocal training at the London School of Music.
