SINGAPORE: The prosecution in the trial of former Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) chief Ng Boon Gay continued attempting to impeach Ng’s credibility on Friday.

Lead prosecutor Tan Ken Hwee accused Ng of lying to the Corrupt Practices and Investigation Bureau (CPIB).

He insisted Ng in fact, knew that Hitachi was sub—contracted for a CNB IT project.

46—year—old Ng, is accused of obtaining oral sex from 36—year—old Cecilia Sue, in exchange for helping to further her employers’ business interests.

Ms Sue, a former IT sales executive, was employed by Hitachi Data Systems and Oracle Singapore at the time of the alleged offences.

Ng had apparently said in his statement to the CPIB that he did not know Hitachi supplied CNB’s data storage system, but DPP Tan disputed this.

He said Ng had told the court he knew that Hitachi was involved in the first phase of the project.

Hence, it was only natural that Ng would have been involved in the second phase of the project.

In court on Friday, Ng explained that he did not know the main contractor had appointed Hitachi as a sub—contractor.

DPP Tan then accused Ng of embellishing and fabricating his relationship with Ms Sue, to support his version of the affair.

Ng disagreed with DPP Tan’s allegation.

On Thursday, the prosecution had made seven applications to impeach Ng’s credibility.

The trial continues.
