Woman makes false report after husband divorces her

In 2017, Wei married her then-husband. After getting married, the man noticed that Wei had a gambling habit. In May of this year, the husband asked Wei for a divorce and married another woman. Since their separation, Wei has felt scorned by her ex-husband. On September 4, the woman falsified a report to the Judiciary Police (PJ) claiming her ex-marriage was a sham because her husband had charged her 100,000 patacas to get married. She added that once she got her Macau ID, she was set to pay another 200,000 patacas to her ex-husband. However, the PJ confirmed that the marriage was authentic and that the woman made a false report.
