Defence lawyers accused Ms Cecilia Sue - star witness at the trial of former Central Narcotics Bureau chief Ng Boon Gay - of lying on Friday, and wanted to know whether she had lied to graft officers or was lying in court.

"Are you aware that perjury in court may open you to criminal prosecution?" asked Senior Counsel Tan Chee Meng at the start of Friday's proceedings.

Without flinching, Ms Sue replied: "That's absolutely sure, so I will not do that."

Since taking the witness stand on Wednesday, Ms Sue has told the court that she did not have a relationship with Ng and was forced to have oral sex with him on four occasions in return for him showing her employers favour in tender bids.
