This morning's sentencing of former Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) senior executive Peter Khoo Chong Meng, who faces corruption and criminal breach of trust charges, has been adjourned to Dec 21.

Lawyer Alfonso Ang, who is representing Khoo, said the reason for the postponement was because the prosecution had wanted to make further submissions for the case and his client would need to reply to these.

Khoo, 49, had in August, pleaded guilty to two counts of corruption and one of criminal breach of trust. Seven other charges are to be taken into consideration by the court for sentencing.

Khoo was accompanied in court today by his family and friends.
