The Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau’s (CPIB) probe into the supply of IT related products and services led to the suspension of the chiefs of the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) and the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB). The forums and media are abuzz with conflicting and confusing news about the mystery woman in the case.
According to the New Paper, a female IT executive developed a close working relationship with both former CNB director Ng Boon Gay, 45, and former SCDF commissioner Peter Lim Sin Pang, 51.
She is said to be working in a firm that supplies IT related products and services to several government offices including Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) and SCDF.
She is said to have started work at an American multinational software company about six months ago. Prior to this she was a sales director at a Japanese multinational company. The probe is related to the period during which she was with this Japanese firm.
Former CNB director Ng is believed to have been close with the woman since early 2009. Mr. Lim and Mr. Ng were both unaware of each other’s dealings with the woman. A report in the Lianhe Wanbao, says that the female IT executive is an attractive divorcee in her 40s, but the Straits Times puts her age at 36, with no mention of her being divorced. It is thought that no money changed hands.
