Ex-SCDF chief trial: Day 3 begins with cross-examination of director of logistics


The sex-for-contracts trial continued on the third day after former Singapore Civil Defence Force chief (SCDF) Peter Lim Sin Pang arrived at the Subordinate Courts at around 9.10am on Wednesday.

SCDF director of logistics Chin Lai Fong is set to return to the witness stand to be cross examined.

On Tuesday, the prosecution questioned her to establish why the SCDF needed to purchase new walk-through radiation detectors back in 2011.

Over the past two days, two managers from Nimrod Engineering, a security systems company at the centre of the corruption case, were also cross examined to establish details of its tender process and the timeline of events leading up to the submission of the tender. Officers from the Singapore Civil Defence Force are likely to take the stand on Wednesday
