'My husband still stands by me': Cecilia Sue


Ms Cecilia Sue said on Monday that her businessman husband continues to stand by her despite widespread media coverage of her relationship with former anti-narcotics chief Ng Boon Gay.

She also told the court that her husband knew she was friends with Ng and was aware that he had called her, often at night. "He still stands by me and I believe if we can weather this storm, our love will be much stronger as well," the former IT sales manager said.

She had been asked how her husband would respond if she admitted that she had consensual sex with another man.

Ms Sue revealed that her husband had been "angry" at times because he thought the reporting of the case was "too one-sided", and how there had been "negative publicity" in recent days that she said portrayed her as a "slut".
