Peter Lim's corruption trial to start in February
Former Singapore Civil Defence Force chief Peter Lim's corruption trial will start in February.
The trial was originally scheduled to start in the middle of this month but will now start in February as the lead prosecutor Tan Kiat Pheng has to undergo surgery following an injury.
The case will be heard in court on 18 February.
The trial is expected to end in March.
Lim faces 10 counts of corruption in a sex-for-contracts case similar to the case involving former anti-drug agency chief Ng Boon Gay.
Key witness Nimrod Engineering's Ms Pang Chor Mui is expected to take the stand.
The nine remaining charges, which involve sex with two other women, have been stood down for now. They will be dealt with separately.
