SINGAPORE: The 70-year-old general practitioner, who was convicted in March of molesting a patient twice, now faces an additional charge of false declaration to the Singapore Medical Council.

On Wednesday, Winston Lee Siew Boon was charged with making a fraudulent declaration to the Singapore Medical Council when he tried to get a practicing certificate under the Medical Registration Act.

Lee allegedly failed to let SMC know that he was the subject of a police investigation in late July last year.

This comes after Lee was found guilty of molesting a 34-year-old female patient, who visited Thong Hoe Clinic at Bukit Batok Street 11 in June and October 2011.

Lee had touched the woman's breasts on two occasions.

The prosecution will make submissions on sentencing for the outrage of modesty case on 23 April while a pre-trial conference for the fresh charge has been fixed on 16 May. - CNA/xq
