Cecilia Sue Siew Nang
6 October 2012. Deputy Public Prosecutor (DPP) Tan Ken Hwee said that he would call 3 Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB) officers who recorded Cecilia Sue Siew Nang’s statements to testify in court. Tan said this after a pre-trial conference held yesterday. This came about because there were serious inconsistencies in Sue’s statements to the CPIB and what she said in the court during the trial. Ng Boon Gay, former Central Narcotics Bureau chief, is facing four counts of corruption charges of allegedly obtaining oral sex from Ms Sue, in exchange for showing favour in furthering the business interests of the companies she had worked for. Defence Counsel Tan Chee Meng sought to impeach her evidence on grounds of inconsistencies it contained. This also prompted the prosecution to question her as a hostile witness. In her statement to the CPIB, Sue had told that she and Ng were in a sexual relationship. She denied this on the stand. She maintained her oral evidence given in court was the truth, and said that previous statements were not. DPP Tan is calling the witnesses from CPIB to establish that Sue gave the statements voluntarily and not under duress. This leaves room for Sue to be charged for perjury.
