A former relationship manager was jailed for six years on Monday for cheating the daughter of late banker-philanthropist Khoo Teck Puat of $2 million.

Bernard Lim Seng Soon, 39, was working in Deutsche Bank in 2010 and 2011 when he cheated Madam Khoo Bee See, 79, of $2 million in September 2010.

He had pleaded guilty to cheating her as well as five offences under the Corruption, Drug Trafficking and Other Serious Crimes (Confiscation of Benefits) Act by transferring, converting and using the benefits of his criminal conduct.

Lim, who faced 18 charges, has made full restitution of the amount.
