The Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB) has recently completed their investigations into the purchase of 26 foldable Brompton bicycles by the National Parks Board (NParks) last year.

The case is now before the public prosecutor "for assessment and determination of whether there is any offence disclosed", said Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean.

He was responding to Non-Constituency MP Lina Chiam, who had asked for the status of the CPIB investigations.

CPIB first investigated the case after an internal audit found "possible indications of corruption of procurement", he said. It submitted its findings to the Attorney-General's Chambers, which then directed it to make further investigations.
