SINGAPORE: Former Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) chief Ng Boon Gay was back on the witness stand for a second day at his sex—for—contracts trial on Tuesday.

This follows District Judge Siva Shanmugam’s decision on Monday that there is a case for Ng to answer.

Ng, 46, is accused of forcing 36—year—old Cecilia Sue, a former IT sales executive, into giving him oral sex, and in exchange, he allegedly helped further her employers’ business interests.

Testifying in his first appearance on the witness stand at the trial on Monday, Ng told the court about his intimate sexual relationship with Ms Sue.

He said the affair continued for about three years and there was never a break—up as suggested by the prosecution.

Ng also told the court that they continued to meet up even after Ms Sue gave birth to her daughter in 2010.

On Monday morning, the prosecution laid out the reasons on why there is a case for Ng to answer, contrary to what defence had claimed in an attempt to get the case dismissed.
