Former Singapore Press Holdings senior executive Peter Khoo Chong Meng, who faces charges of criminal breach of trust and corruption, was back in court a third time on Tuesday.

The 49-year-old's lawyer requested two weeks' adjournment to prepare mitigation.

Khoo was charged last month with misappropriating Capita vouchers worth $11,547 on each of two occasions between May 2007 and January 2008 and between August 2009 and July 2010.

He is also said to have obtained bribes of between $5,000 and $30,000 from a supplier, Mr Liaw Kim Chew, on eight occasions between 2006 and 2010 in return for awarding him business deals.
