SINGAPORE: The corruption trial of former chief of the Singapore Civil Defence Force, Peter Lim, has been extended by four days.

Lim’s lawyers said four additional trial dates have been set as the initial schedule of eight days over February and March were not sufficient.

The trial will resume on 15 March.

Lim, 52, is accused of obtaining oral sex from Ms Pang Chor Mui of Nimrod Engineering in exchange for advancing her company’s business interests.

Ms Pang was a general manager when she allegedly had oral sex with Lim in May 2010 at a carpark in Stadium Walk.

Ms Pang is expected to take the stand as a witness for the prosecution during the trial from 18 March.

Nine other charges of corruption against Lim were stood down in 2012 and will be dealt with separately.

The charges involve sex with two other women — senior executives Esther Goh of IT firm NCS and Ms Lee Wei Hoon of Singapore Radiation Centre.
