In a similar case that occurred on September 16, 2022, a 42-year-old man named Mohammad Razali Rahmat was sentenced to six months’ imprisonment for stealing money from a donation box at a mosque in Singapore. Initially seeking financial aid, Razali was given S$50 by the mosque staff. However, instead of volunteering at the mosque as advised, he returned on two occasions and stole cash from the donation box. The mosque’s administration manager discovered the thefts through CCTV footage, leading to Razali’s arrest.
