Ex-SCDF chief Peter Lim on home detention
Peter Lim subjected to monitoring while serving rest of 6-month sentence outside jail
Peter Lim Sin Pang, the former civil defence chief who was convicted of corruption, will serve out the remainder of his six-month jail term at home.
The Singapore Prison Service, responding to queries, confirmed that the 53-year-old was let out of Changi Prison and placed on home detention on Sept 27.
Lim was found guilty in May of corruptly obtaining sex from a 49-year-old sales director who had worked for Nimrod Engineering, a vendor of the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF). This was in exchange for furthering the business interests of Nimrod.
He also admitted to seven more corruption charges involving trysts with two other women who were working for separate vendors of the SCDF.
