Woman arrested for trying to bribe 3 police officers along Stamford Road

SINGAPORE - A 29-year-old woman has been arrested for trying to bribe three police officers.

She had been stopped for a check along Stamford Road at about 3pm on Tuesday (April 11), by three officers conducting anti-vice operations.

The Straits Times understands that the woman was believed to have been involved in prostitution activities.

She offered the three - Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Chan Wai Hoong, Station Inspector (SI) Ng Bak Guan and Corporal Ruby Yau from Central Division - a sum of money to let her go.

She did so despite being warned that bribery is a serious offence.

The officers rejected her bribe and arrested her for attempting to bribe a police officer.

The case has been referred to the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau for investigation.

Police are also investigating the woman for her suspected involvement in vice activities, under the provisions of the Women's Charter.

Said SI Ng Bak Guan: "Every police officer bears upon their shoulders the trust from the public to uphold the highest standards of integrity and to be fair and impartial. This must never be shaken."
