Ng Boon Gay with his wife Ng Yen Yen
28 September 2012. Cecilia Sue Siew Nang took the stand as a prosecution witness Thursday morning continuing her testimony in the trial of former Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) chief Ng Boon Gay. Ms Sue was cross examined by the defence lawyer, Senior Counsel Tan Chee Meng as to why she said she had sexual intercourse with Ng in her first statement to the Corrupt Practices Investiagtion Bureau (CPIB) in December last year. The pair agreed to meet at Great World City one day in 2009, and when they reached a serviced apartment he rented for his mother, “Boon Gay started to hug and kiss me” and that he quickly striped himself of clothes, she claimed. “He shifted my panties to insert his private part in me. He was very fast… he did not ejaculate inside me. When he was lying down, I gave him a blowjob,” Tan quoted from her statement. The statement read out continued, “I blew him on his private part for awhile. During this occasion, he ejaculated in my mouth. I recall because I spit out his ejaculation out in the bathroom toilet.” Sue went on to state that she had felt guilty after she returned home, but had told no one about the incident. “I didn’t tell anyone… I was in a daze… I feel more liking for Boon Gay,” Tan read out from the statement. When questioned, Sue said, “I admit the initial statement with CPIB wasn’t truthful enough because that was the first time I was brought in by CPIB. I was confused… I had no sleep.” She said that she had not wanted to implicate anyone then. “It’s only after some thought that I thought I had to be truthful. And what I said today is the truth.” Earlier when Tan questioned Sue, “Are you denying sex because you’re concerned any admission on your part may affect your marriage, and may even affect custody of your daughter since divorce proceedings have started?” Sue reacted in agitation, and clarified that things with her husband are fine, if not, “stronger than ever”. She also added that her husband and her daughter are still living together. Her husband was notably absent on both days she gave evidence in the court. Compared to her relatively quick replies to questions from the prosecution over the past two days, Sue repeatedly sought clarification of technical terms, and several times did not directly answer questions from Ng’s defence counsel. At several points in the cross-examination, Sue said to defence lawyer Tan, “I don’t understand you’re trying to ask.” In her testimony on Wednesday, Sue painted the picture of a man who became increasingly desperate to obtain sexual gratification in the form of oral sex, despite being repeatedly rejected by Sue. Earlier, Mr. Tan Chee Meng read out intimate messages from phone whatsapp SMS between his client, Ng, and Sue that again shed a different light on their relationship The first message read out was: “Do you DIY?”. Another message sent by Ms Sue on July 2 was: “I could have three hours with you. We had fun”. Later the same day she sent another message: “She’s home?”. The phone records revealed that on 5 December 2011 at 9:40pm, three days after one of the encounters wherein the then CNB chief allegedly attempted to force her to perform oral sex on him, Sue sent him the message “MU” (miss you). When Ng failed to reply she sent a message “you ignore me how how how”. Three minutes later, Sue sent another message, “With her? Where’s family day?” Yet, five days after the alleged encounter that she was “disgusted” over, Sue sent a text message to Ng again. “Sad, sad. Can we turn back the clock?” He replied, “Back to Great World City time.” At Tan’s probing, Sue said that her message meant that she had hoped to continue staying friends with no physical intimacy, but that “never happened”. The defence’s case is that Ms Sue had been having an affair with Ng since 2009, two years before Ng had allegedly forced her into giving him oral sex. The Prosecution’s case is that Ms Sue was pressured into performing fellatio because she was concerned about the contracts, and that she would jeopardise the commercial relationship she had built with the CNB. Ng’s wife of 18-years, Ng Yen Yen, said after the session that she is going to “persist” in supporting her husband. She added that her faith remains “unwavering”.
