11 prosecution witnesses to testify in trial involving ex-SCDF chief
Eleven prosecution witnesses will testify at the trial of former Singapore Civil Defence Force chief Peter Lim in January.
The 11 include SCDF officers and one of three women at the centre of the sex-for-IT-contracts case.
The prosecution has decided to proceed on one of the 10 charges facing Lim.
Speaking to the media after a pre-trial conference today, Lim's lawyers said the charge relates to him obtaining oral sex from Ms Pang Chor Mui in May 2010 in exchange for advancing her company's business interests with the SCDF.
At that time, Ms Pang was the General Manager of Nimrod Engineering and the firm was a vendor to the SCDF.
The other nine charges have been stood down for now.
The defence have not decided on their witness list yet.
They say they are waiting further information to be provided over the next two weeks.
The case will be mentioned again on November 2.
