Ng Boon Gay case: Grounds of decision out and prosecution has till June 11 to appeal

The court has released its grounds of decision on the acquittal of former anti-narcotics chief Ng Boon Gay.

The prosecution has 11 days, or up till June 11, to appeal against the verdict in the sex-for-contracts case involving Mr Ng, the Attorney-General's Chambers said on Friday. Ng was acquitted of four counts of corruption on Feb 14.

During his trial that lasted 15 days last year, the court heard from 10 witnesses including Mr Ng and former IT sales executive Cecilia Sue, whom he had a long-running extra-marital affair with.

This development comes on the same day as former Singapore Civil Defence Force chief Peter Lim being found guilty of corruption in another sex-for-contracts corruption case.
