A senior Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB) officer took the stand on Wednesday as the sex-for-contracts trial involving former top cop Ng Boon Gay resumed after a month.

Mr Teng Khee Fatt, the bureau's deputy director for investigations, faced a barrage of questions from both the prosecution and defence.

The two sides tried to bolster their case through the officer who was in charge of one of the most high-profile corruption probes here in nearly two decades.

The prosecution started with the first of its two tasks - to try and establish that the CPIB statements given by Ms Cecilia Sue, the woman at the centre of the case, were not given under duress.
