Ex-SPH senior executive fined $100k for corruption and CBT


Former Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) senior executive Peter Khoo was fined $100,000 on Thursday for corruption and criminal breach of trust.

The fine was meted out by district judge Soh Tze Bian in default of 20 weeks of jail.

Khoo was also ordered to pay a penalty of $83,500 in default of 16 weeks imprisonment. This was the total gratification he received, and had already been surrendered after he confessed in 2010. 

In August, the 49-year-old had pleaded guilty to two counts of corruption and one of criminal breach of trust. Seven other charges were taken into consideration for sentencing.
