Han Feizi, a Chinese woman who was residing in Singapore, has been deported and banned from re-entering the city-state after videos of her confrontations with the police went viral.
The confrontation: Han, 29, was involved in altercations with hospital staff and the police at Singapore General Hospital after a Grab driver purportedly ran over her foot. The incident took place after Han went to the hospital to seek treatment for her foot injury.
In her videos posted on Chinese social media platform Douyin, she claimed that she had waited for three hours at the emergency department without receiving medical attention, saying that she was refused treatment because she was not a Singaporean citizen. 
However, the hospital refuted her claims, noting that Han had become “abusive” and aggressive to hospital staff members when she was told to wear a face mask. She was also said to have verbally abused a nurse before reportedly arguing with the police upon their arrival. She recorded and posted a video featuring a female police officer, who she had allegedly verbally abused and harassed. 
Han’s charges and sentencing: On Oct. 13, Han was handed six charges, including public nuisance, assaulting a security officer, using abusive language against public service workers or servants and harassment.
Upon investigation, she received two additional charges under Singapore’s Employment of Foreign Manpower Act on Oct. 24. Han allegedly falsified her application for a work permit to work as a clerk for a company called KDL Elements. However, she never worked at the designated company and freelanced as a hostess at various locations instead.
On the next day, Han, who pleaded guilty, was sentenced to five weeks and five days, along with a fine of 600 Singaporean dollars ($442).
Han’s deportation: The Immigration and Checkpoints Authority deported the 29-year-old to China on Wednesday, according to Channel News Asia. Singapore’s Ministry of Manpower also revoked her work pass and banned her from re-entering the nation.
