SINGAPORE: Forty—year—old Swiss expatriate Juerg Buergin, who was charged in April with paying an underage girl for sex, is contesting the two charges.
Juerg, who is currently unemployed, will claim trial.
The former UBS bank executive allegedly paid the girl for sex on two occasions.
Juerg is currently out on a S$15,000 bail.
The next court date has been fixed for August 7.
Juerg was one of 48 men charged with having paid sex with the girl. They allegedly procured the services from an online vice ring which had employed the girl.
So far, nine men have either pleaded guilty or indicated they will not claim trial.
