A MAN who caused alarm to an SMRT customer service officer by saying that he was a terrorist, was fined $1,000 on Thursday.
Kevin Teo Kok Leong alias Muhammad Riduan Teo, 33, was fined $1,000 for saying that he was a terrorist at Dhoby Ghaut MRT Interchange.
Kevin Teo Kok Leong alias Muhammad Riduan Teo, 33, a mechanic, admitted to using threatening words at Mr Suasni Samuri, 43, at Dhoby Ghaut MRT Interchange on Nov 26, 2010.
A Community Court heard that Mr Suasni was on duty when he saw Teo entering the train platform without tapping his ez-Link card.
Mr Suasni gave chase and managed to stop Teo, who refused to hand over his ez-Link card to be checked.
While Mr Suasni was trying to solicit information from Teo, Teo said: 'You know who I am, I am a terrorist, you know.'
Teo repeated the words when asked what he had said earlier. He could have been fined up to $5,000 for the offence.
