Ex-CNB chief on trial

Cecilia Sue: I was forced to perform oral sex

IT sales manager also explains why she did not make police report

Ms Cecilia Sue, the IT sales manager at the centre of former Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) chief Ng Boon Gay's corruption trial, described in graphic detail on Wednesday how he forced her to perform oral sex on him four times in 2011.

She teared at times as she told a district court that he wanted sex in parked cars and would force her head to his groin.

She said her encounters with the then director of the CNB happened at carparks at the Hort Park, Sentosa's Beaufort Hotel, the Singapore General Hospital, and Mount Faber, and usually after they had met for dinner or drinks. She said the sex acts lasted from "split seconds" to minutes.

The 36-year-old married mother of one said she did not like being forced to perform the act, but did not make a police report as she did not want to be disgraced, or hurt her family. Nor did she want to jeopardise her IT contracts with Ministry of Home Affairs agencies. The CNB comes under the ministry too.

Background story


No. Why would he have the thought? We were not in any relationship, neither am I that sort who go (sic) for such things. I'm particular about hygiene and cleanliness so I don't think he would. I don't give that kind of impression.

- Ms Cecilia Sue on whether Ng Boon Gay had expected oral sex from her when they met


Firstly on reading this, it looks to me like it was a personal relationship. We did not deliberate and try to read too much into this, but were just very factual to (sic) this situation.

- Oracle managing director Leslie Ong on what he thought about Ms Sue's relationship with Ng, after reading an e-mail sent by Oracle's human resources director who had interviewed Ms Sue about it


I do not think that the prosecution can spring a witness on us without telling us the time and the day...criminal litigation is not ambush litigation and I do object to the sudden change of witnesses...so, Sir, may I request that no such surprises be sprung on us now and forever more?

- Defence lawyer Tan Chee Meng objecting to the prosecution calling Ms Sue as the second witness. She was fourth on the list of five prosecution witnesses publicised at the start of the trial.
