SINGAPORE: The two Germans charged for their alleged involvement in a case of vandalism of an SMRT train at Bishan Depot have been slapped with two additional charges each on Friday (Nov 28).
Andreas Von Knorre and Elton Hinz, both aged 21, are accused of entering the depot without authorisation on two other occasions - once on Nov 6 at about 2.43am and another on Nov 7 at about 2.20am.
The two men were first charged on Nov 22 at the State Courts. They each faced two charges of entering the depot without authorisation on Nov 8 between 2.48am and 3.29am, and using spray paint to paint graffiti on the left exterior cabin of an SMRT train at the depot.
The two accused had their additional charges read out to them in German in court on Friday. They were offered bail of S$100,000, and the next mention of the case will be on Dec 17.
If found guilty of vandalism, Knorre and Hinz could be jailed for up to three years, or fined up to S$2,000. They may also face between three and eight strokes of the cane. For the offence of trespassing, they could be fined S$1,000 or face a jail term of up to two years, if found guilty.
