Peter Lim Sin Pang

Ng Boon Gay

Singapore: The Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB), Singapore’s anti-corruption agency, said in a statement on Wednesday (25 January 2012) that it arrested the then CNB director, Ng Boon Gay, on 19 December last year. The then SCDF commissioner, Peter Lim Sin Pang, was placed under arrest on 4 January this year. Both men are now on bail.

Both are said to be co-operating with CPIB in the investigations. CPIB functioning under the purview of Prime Minister’s Office adopts a zero tolerance approach to corruption.

Meanwhile the SCDF and CNB, both Home Team agencies, assured the public that they will carry out their duties to ensure Singapore’s safety and security despite the developments at their workplaces.
