London, Sep 29 (ANI): Miss World Singapore 2009 Ris Low, who was revealed to be a convict of a credit card fraud, has reportedly asked people to forgive her.
Many Singaporeans wanted her to be stripped of her title, while others requested her not to represent Singapore in the finals of the Miss World pageant to be held in South Africa in December.
China Press reported that Low pleaded to be given a second chance, and asked for forgiveness from Singaporeans.
She had declined a phone interview but later sent an SMS to the reporter to apologise to Singaporeans, reports the Star Online.
Last Friday, Low turned emotional during an interview after the fraud was exposed.
Two months before the Miss World Singapore pageant, Low was sentenced to 24 months' probation for using illegally obtained credit cards to purchase jewellery and a handphone and dining at posh restaurants, running a bill close to 8,000 dollars.
However, the daily reported that the probation is not considered a conviction. (ANI)
