A SENIOR employee of the People's Association was fined $5,000 yesterday for giving false information to the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB) about a constituency volunteer.

Jo Soh Bee Ching, 40, who was the director of the Changi-Simei constituency, told an anti-graft investigator the volunteer had signed statements in her presence disclosing a conflict of interest when he joined a company that had dealings with the club.

But, in fact, the statements were made only when CPIB came inquiring about a complaint against him, more than two years later.

Mr Chia Chee Sin, who was the youth executive committee chairman at Changi-Simei Community Club, worked for a company called J Force Events.
