Former school principal Lee Lip Hong, the first of dozens of men charged to plead guilty to paying for sex with an underage girl, has found a job.

He is now assisting Mr Pang Lim, founder and managing director of established foodcourt operator Koufu.

Mr Pang, 56, whose business has outlets in venues such as Kallang Leisure Park, Sentosa and West Mall, said yesterday that he was "a friend of a friend" but declined to give further details of Mr Lee's job scope.

Both Mr Pang and Mr Lee are said to be well-regarded members of the local Chinese clan community. On Monday, Mr Lee would say only that he was "thanks to God's grace, managing fine, learning in my new job". He and his boss declined to reveal when he started working at Koufu but it is believed to have been within the past few weeks.
