The sex-for-contracts trial continued on the second day following the arrival of former Singapore Civil Defence Force chief (SCDF) Peter Lim Sin Pang at the Subordinate Courts at around 9.10am on Tuesday.

First to take the stand on Tuesday morning was prosecution witness, Mr Lee Yong Chin, a sales manager from Nimrod Engineering, a security systems company at the centre of the corruption case. The cross-examination of Mr Lee had begun on Monday.

The prosecution has charged that the company received prior information from Lim regarding a tender before it was made public in April 2011.

Lim, 52, faces 10 corruption charges, one of which involves Ms Pang Chor Mui, a former general manager of Nimrod Engineering.

He is alleged to have received oral sex from Ms Pang at a carpark in May 2010 in exchange for advancing her company's business interest with SCDF.

She is expected to take the stand as a prosecution witness during the trial.
