The employer of the woman who had an illicit tryst with former Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) chief Peter Lim Sin Pang, stood to gain a $400,000 contract if it was awarded a tender by the Home Team agency.

This was revealed in court on Tuesday, by Nimrod Engineering sales manager Lee Yong Chin, who took the stand on the second day of the sex-for-contracts corruption trial.

Mr Lee said Nimrod had quoted about $400,000 to supply the SCDF with radiation detectors and maintenance of the equipment.

On the first day of the trial, the prosecution had linked this contract to the tryst between Lim and Ms Pang Chor Mui, a general manager from Nimrod.
