Sex-for-contracts trial: Senior CPIB investigator returns to witness stand


The lead investigator in charge of the sex-for-contracts case involving former top cop Ng Boon Gay returned to the witness stand on Thursday morning, with the prosecution seeking to rebut inconsistencies pointed out by the defence the day before.

A major point raised by senior counsel Tan Chee Meng then was whether key witness Cecilia Sue had told the senior officer from the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB) that she was willing to take a lie detector test.

CPIB deputy director Teng Khee Fatt's station diary had indicated that she had wanted to do so. A station diary is typically used by investigators like Mr Teng to log notes, details or developments of cases they are handling,

But Mr Teng, a CPIB veteran of 29 years, had clarified to Mr Tan that he had missed out the word "not" when recording the entry in his diary.
