Charting the relationship between Ng Boon Gay and Cecilia Sue
14 February, 2013
Former CNB chief Ng Boon Gay is acquitted of all four corruption charges against him.
District Judge Siva Shanmugam accepted Ng’s evidence that he had no ulterior motive and corrupt intent in accepting oral sex from Cecilia Sue.
He said both Ng and Sue's intentions were "innocuous", and that there was no reason to believe that her offer of oral sex was intended as an act of inducement.
Judge Shanmugam also found that Sue was not credible as a witness.
He said her explanations on inconsistencies in her statements to the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau and evidence in court were inadequate and unconvincing.
"Her claims that she was tired, stressed and frightened, even if true, would not satisfactorily account for the wide divergence in her evidence," said the judge.
"I found Ms Sue's explanations for the numerous material discrepancies to be unconvincing. The discrepancies went towards the crux of the charges.
"After weighing her oral testimony with the evidence in its entirety, I found that her credit had indeed been successfully impeached.”
Ng could have been jailed up to five years and fined up to $100,000 for each of the four charges.
