Paramjeet Kaur, 41, was arrested on May 4 and appeared in court for the first time the next day.

The Singaporean woman who is accused of repeatedly failing to wear a mask in public during the coronavirus outbreak was charged with one count of being a public nuisance and three counts of violating Covid-19 rules.

Earlier this month, she made headlines when a video clip of her circulated on social media. In the video, she claimed to be a “sovereign” during a heated argument with a passerby at Shunfu Mart near Upper Thomson Road.

Kaur, who was previously represented by Lawyer Satwant Singh, is now represented by lawyer Anil Singh Sandhu.

Her bail was set at $10,000 on Tuesday and the case has been adjourned to June 2.

For failing to wear a mask over the nose and mouth, a first-time offender can be jailed for up to six months and fined up to $10,000.

Repeat offenders can be jailed for up to a year and fined up to $20,000.
