The prosecution in the trial of former Central Narcotics Bureau chief, Ng Boon Gay, today told the court that four witnesses will be called to testify.
The four are: Koh Hong Eng from Oracle Corporation, Deputy Director of the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau ( CPIB ) Teng Khee Fatt, CPIB officers Wilson Khoo and Bay Chun How.
Ng, 46, is accused of obtaining oral sex from 36-year-old Ms Cecilia Sue in 2011 on four occasions, in exchange for helping to further the business interests of two IT firms she worked for.
This morning, Mr Koh, a senior director at Oracle Corporation, was the first to testify.
He told the court how Ms Sue was actively pursuing CNB and the Home Affairs ministry as clients.
Mr Koh said it was normal to do so in the IT industry.
He also said Ms Sue was doing her job by actively pursuing Ng, who was a potential client.
A 54-page extract of Mr Koh and Ms Sue's correspondence was submitted in court.
Referring to the extracts, Mr Koh told the court it was common for him and Ms Sue to message each other till three in the morning.
He explained that it was due to the nature of the job and that he would be communicating with other sales representatives too, not just Ms Sue.
CPIB Deputy Director Teng Khee Fatt is to testify after lunch.
Earlier, the court was told that the aim was for prosecution to wrap up its case by today.
The trial continues.
