He was charged with possessing the drug while at the bus arrival hall of the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) at the Tuas Checkpoint on March 12.
It was learned that the Sarawak-born actor was in Singapore for the filming of “The Hush” drama, produced by Weiyu Films, scheduled to be screened next month. Berita Harian (Singapore) had contacted Weiyu Films managing director Lee Thean-Jeen.
