Former civil defence chief Peter Lim Sin Pang on Saturday morning completed his six-month jail term on home detention.

Mr Lim was found guilty in May of corruptly obtaining sex from a 49-year-old sales director who had worked for Nimrod Engineering, a vendor of the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF). This was in exchange for furthering the business interests of Nimrod. He also admitted to seven more corruption charges involving trysts with two other women who were working for separate vendors of the SCDF.

The 53-year-old started serving his jail sentence in June but he was placed on home detention from Sept 27, during which he had to wear an electronic monitoring tag and leave home only between noon and 3pm.

Mr Lim was reportedly driven to the Selarang Park Community Supervision Centre on Saturday to have his electronic monitoring tag removed.
