Ex-CNB Chief Ng Boon Gay Claiming Trial In Scandal Case Including Cecilia Sue Siew Nang: Former Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) Chief Ng Boon Gay claiming trial for all four charges of corruption in the sex-for-favours case.
Ng Boon Gay was charged for corruptly with four counts of corruptly obtaining sexual gratification from Cecilia Sue Siew Nang , a sales manager with Oracle Corporation Singapore and formerly Hitachi Data Systems. He was accused of ‘allegedly’ having oral sex with her on four occasions, between June and December 2011.
The Straits Times (ST) reported that his lawyers had previously said that is too premature for Ng to decide if he will claim trial against the corruption charges he faces as the particulars of the case were not yet made available.
According to the charge sheets, the first two alleged sexual encounters took place when Sue was in Hitachi – the first between June and July last year, and the between last October and November. The third and fourth incidents allegedly happened in December when Sue was in Oracle. The specific locations, however, were not stated.
Ng’s lawyers, Tan Chee Meng and Melanie Ho have taken issue with the charges, describing them as being too ‘general’. They were also unable to obtain further information from the Attorney-General’s Chambers on the details of the charges.
Mr Tan said that he will raise the point with the trial judge that his client will be prejudiced as the charges are “too general”, adding that the charges do not state what the alleged corrupt acts were, and do not specify what business interests were involved.
In a media statement released to the press yesterday, the lawyers reiterated that they have yet to be given the specifics of the charges brought against Ng. The case will be mentioned on 16 August.
