Ng Boon Gay

For 19 months, former Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) chief Ng Boon Gay’s life was turned upside down. But all that came to an end on Valentine’s Day when he was acquitted of corruptly obtaining sexual favours from former IT sales executive Cecilia Sue in 2011 in exchange for furthering the business interests of her employers.

The judge said Ng did not have an ulterior or corrupt motive, and that the four counts of oral sex occurred in the context of his relationship with Sue.

Impeaching the testimony of Sue, the judge said her testimony fell apart because it was inconsistent and unconvincing - she denied having a sexual relationship with him, but was able to provide graphic details of their sexual encounters to the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau.

For example, three days later after the incident, Sue messaged "M u", which meant "miss you" and when the accused did not respond, Sue texted "u ignore me. How? How? How?"

And then six days after the last occasion of alleged forced fellatio, Sue sent the accused a sexually suggestive message "Did u DIY". "It would be surprising to see such conduct from someone who had been the subject of forced oral sex," the judge noted.

Ng, who was all smiles when he left the court, said he was grateful for the support of his wife and legal team, and glad that he can finally focus on moving on with his life.

“It is nice to be acquitted on Valentine’s Day.”
