Former CNB chief Ng Boon Gay goes on trial on Tuesday
The trial of Ng Boon Gay, one of two men embroiled in the most high-profile corruption cases involving public servants in nearly two decades, starts today.
Ng, former head of the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB), faces four counts of obtaining sex from IT executive Cecilia Sue, in exchange for assisting her companies in their bids for contracts with his organisation.
Observers said the case is likely to turn on whether the prosecution can prove the alleged trysts led to favours being doled out.
Ms Sue, 36, was either a sales manager at Hitachi Data Systems (HDS), or a senior sales manager at Oracle Corporation Singapore which she joined towards the end of the year, during the alleged offences from June to December last year.
