SINGAPORE: Former Chief of Central Narcotics Bureau NG Boon Gay has been charged with four counts of involvement in obtaining sexual favour from a woman, who was serving as a sales manager in two IT vendors.
Thus he allegedly violated the Prevention of Corruption Act through engagement in oral sex with Cecilia Sue Siew Nang on four occasions, between June and December 2011. From June to November 2011, Ms. Sue was the sales manager of Hitachi Data Systems, while in December last year; she joined Oracle Corporation Singapore as its senior sales manager. Oracle informed Channel NewsAsia that Ms. Sue is still with the company.
In exchange, NG would allegedly advance the business interests of the two IT companies in their dealings with the CNB. He said that he is not guilty to all four charges. H is represented by Senior Counsel Tan Chee Meng and Ms Melanie Ho from WongPartnership. They felt that the charges were “very general in nature” and will be writing to the Deputy Public Prosecutor for more details.
Meanwhile, Mr Tan asked for the case to be adjourned as he wanted the prosecution to clarify how NG’s alleged offences had helped the two companies in their business interests, and what these interests were. He is now out on a S$10,000 bail and will be back in court on June 26 to attend the next hearing.
While, in a statement to the media, NG’s wife disclosed that she has never doubted his professional integrity and will continue to stand by him.
