Two video clips of the act were played in court.

On Tuesday, Deputy Public Prosecutor Norman Yew sought a S$5,000 fine as punishment. DPP Yew told the court that Noor Azhar’s actions had caused unnecessary alarm to residents, adding that there was an element of premeditation.

During his mitigation plea, Noor Azhar said that he was deeply remorseful for his actions, which was “carried out without thinking”.

Under the Dangerous Fireworks Act, it is an offence to possess, sell, transport, deliver, distribute, import or discharge any dangerous fireworks in Singapore.

For his offence, Noor Azhar could have been jailed for up to two years, fined between S$2,000 and S$10,000, or both.
