Graphic and intimate text messages from Cecilia Sue to Ng Boon Gay revealed in court
Suggestive text messages from the woman at the centre of the case against former Central Narcotics Bureau chief Ng Boon Gay were revealed in court today.
The messages from Ms Cecilia Sue Siew Nang came to light when she was grilled by Ng's defence lawyer, Senior Counsel Tan Chee Meng.
Senior Counsel Tan presented phone records in court which showed that Ms Sue sent Ng many intimate and suggestive text messages.
Ms Sue, who had accused Ng of forcing her to perform oral sex on him, had maintained during the trial that she and Ng were just friends and they were not intimate.
So the Senior Counsel asked if Ms Sue sent "naughty jokes" asking suggestive questions not just to Ng but to all her friends.
To which, Ms Sue said she sends jokes to friends.
Taking Ms Sue to another phone record, Senior Counsel Tan told the court she had sent Ng a message at 1am on a day in July 2011 - "I could have spent three hours with you, we could have fun.".
Ms Sue explained that she meant she could have had three hours of dinner with Ng and that she was asking if HE was having fun.
The defence shot back, asking Ms Sue, given that she had already had unpleasant encounters with Ng by then and that she testified yesterday that she was disgusted with the accused, why would she send such messages?
Ms Sue then replied that Ng had apologised for his previous actions by then so she texted him.
The defence also grilled Ms Sue on why she sent a separate text message to Ng at 1am asking if his wife was home.
Ms Sue told the court that sometimes when she types messages, she does it too quickly and sends it to the wrong person.
The court heard that on the 6th of December, Ms Sue again messaged Ng, asking him if he was with his wife.
SC Tan:" Again, why are you so concerned about his wife?"
To this, Ms Sue said she sends similar messages to others as well and not just Ng.
She hardened her voice and went on to say she does not need to have an intimate relationship with Ng when he has "so many women" with him.
Ms Sue also said that the text messages were not suggestive and only so if the person reading it assumed she was having an affair with Ng.
The hearing also threw up some other points - that Ms Sue had sexual intercourse with Ng in June 2009.
The incident allegedly happened at a service apartment Ng had gotten for his mother at Great World City.
But inconsistencies were evident in Ms Sue's various testimonies and the defence took issue with it.
The defence pointed out that she had told the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau or CPIB that she had sex with Ng.
But on the stand today, the defence said, she painted a totally different picture.
Ms Sue said Ng had hugged her and while he went to undress himself, she escaped from the apartment.
It was at this point that Ms Sue admitted she had been untruthful in the initial statement given to the CPIB.
She said back then, it was the first time she was hauled in by CPIB and was confused and tired.
She said she didn't want to implicate anyone.
Explaining that she was plagued by nightmares and guilt of not telling the truth, Ms Sue finally decided to come clean about Ng's acts.
Visibly upset, the witness also told a packed courtroom that she had thought her later statements which were newer, would supercede the old ones.
By this point, the mother-of-one broke down and defence counsel asked for the trial to be adjourned.
Hearing continues tomorrow.
