British man, Singaporean wife, found guilty after he breaches warning of stay-home to visit her at the hotel.

A British national and his Singaporean wife pleaded guilty to unlawfully spending time together in the Ritz-Carlton Millenia hotel during his stay-home notice. Nigel Skea, 52, was allowed, under COVID-19 regulations, to stay in his hotel room for 14 days. Three times he violated the rules and on his third departure he met his then fiancee, Agatha Maghesh Eyamalai, in another room in the same hotel.

He left his room without a mask on three occasions on Sept 21 of last year. He wandered twice down the corridor outside his room on the 14th floor, for about 10 minutes each time, according to court records. He met Eyamalai, 39, on the third time. She did not serve a stay-home note, but had reserved a separate room on the same hotel’s 27th floor.
