SINGAPORE: A new prosecution witness has taken the stand to testify in the corruption trial of former Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) chief, Ng Boon Gay.
Deputy director of CNB, Mr Marvin Sim, is the third witness to take the stand on the sixth day of the trial.
Prosecution told the court on Tuesday that it’ll ask Mr Sim to explain the procurement process at the bureau as well as for relevant information relating to the case.
This comes after defence said it had no more questions for the key witness, Ms Cecilia Sue Siew Nang.
Ms Sue took the stand on four days of the 18—day trial.
On Monday, prosecution turned against Ms Sue by applying to cross—examine her.
The unexpected move means she’s treated as a hostile witness and that prosecution doubted parts of her evidence.
Ng, 46, is accused of obtaining oral sex from Ms Sue in 2011 on four occasions, in exchange for helping to further the business interests of two IT firms she worked for.
Prosecution’s first witness was Oracle Singapore’s managing director, Mr Leslie Ong.
