The 45-year-old Chinese national pleaded guilty to one charge of criminal trespass.

The man was jailed for six weeks for sneaking three people into Swift’s Eras Tour concert at the National Stadium on March 4.

Li, who had held the turnstile for three women and pushed them through, pleaded guilty to one charge of criminal trespass. While on a connecting flight from Wuhan to Penang, a man asked Shangguan if she wanted to buy three Eras Tour tickets for RMB4,000 each.Shangguan agreed, and the man said he would connect her to someone in Singapore who would help her get free-seating tickets.The women flew to Singapore on March 4 and met Yang at one of the gates after passing through security checks. One of the women transferred RMB12,000 to an Alipay account when Yang told her to.

When Yang alerted Li to this, Li walked towards one of the unattended turnstiles where two concert-goers were queueing to scan their tickets. As one concert-goer entered the venue through the turnstile, Li held onto the bar to prevent it from rotating into a locked position and pushed the three women through it.After the women entered the National Stadium, Li and Yang walked away. But a concert-goer who saw what Li had done shouted at the officer to alert him.When another concert-goer asked Li to stop touching her, both Li and Yang left the scene.

Before meting out the sentence, District Judge Hairul noted that Li made unlawful contact with a legitimate concert-goer after committing the offence.
