A woman is facing a court charge after being accused of mixing her menstrual blood and urine into food meant for the residents of a Sengkang flat in Singapore.
43-year-old Canares Rowena Ola, who is from the Philippines, faces one charge of mischief that carries jail term up to one year and a fine, reported The Strait Times.
She was expected to plead guilty of the charge on Wednesday (2 December) but decided to dispute the charge while in district court.
Deputy Public Prosecutor Keith Jieren Thirumaran told District Judge Marvin Bay that Ola had earlier admitted to the offence in several statements to authorities. However, details regarding Ola’s job and how she’s linked to the alleged victims are not stated in court documents.
There’s also no mention of her motives for allegedly committing the offence in December 2018. The court heard the contaminated food was consumed and there has been no DNA testing that has been done.
Ola is represented by defence lawyer Kalaithasan Karuppaya and her pre-trial conference will be held next year on 25 January.
