Gaming is considered essential to many but flouting laws in the name of gaming seems too extreme even for us.

Dave Darren Savuryrajoo was given five charges for breaching COVID-19 regulations in April and June 2020.
During the circuit breaker on 10 April last year which also imposed essential activity restrictions, he had met someone outside of his residence to drink beer and had failed to wear his mask properly at a multi-storey carpark after Phase 1 kicked on 14 June. It was at the same carpark that he had again flouted rules just to meet someone else just to play Mobile Legends.
Court records indicate that Dave intends to plead guilty on 30 June.
Breaching COVID-19 regulations, Dave could face a jail term of up to six months and/or a fine of up to S$10,000 if convicted.
