Ng Boon Gay
12 June 2012. After weeks of suspense and speculation former Central Narcotics Bureau chief Ng Boon Gay has been charged with four counts of corruptly obtaining sexual favours from a woman, in return for IT contracts.
Ng arrived in a taxi at the Subordinate Courts with his wife and lawyers. His bail is set for $10,000 and his next court date is on June 26. In a statement to the media, Ng’s wife said that she has never doubted his professional integrity and will continue to stand by him.
Ng is represented by Senior Counsel Tan Chee Meng and Ms Melanie Ho from WongPartnership.
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 pleaded not guilty to all four charges.
The 44 year old Mr Ng is accused of having oral sex with Ms Cecilia Sue Siew Nang, who was an employee of Oracle and Hitachi Data Systems June and December last year. The Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB) said in a statement that the trysts were apparently in exchange for helping to ‘further the business interests of the relevant IT vendor, in respect of that vendor’s dealings with CNB’. She joined Oracle Corporation Singapore in December last year as its senior sales manager. Oracle told Channel NewsAsia that Ms Sue is still with the company.
