Prosecution files 3 more applications to impeach Ng Boon Gay's credibility
The prosecution in the corruption trial of former narcotics chief Ng Boon Gay, today made another three applications to impeach Ng's credibility.
One, over evidence submitted that Ng did not know Hitachi supplied CNB's data storage system.
Two, that Ng did not know the main contractor had appointed Hitachi as a sub-contractor.
And three - over statements about Ng's sexual relationship with Cecilia Sue between August 2010 and July 2011.
46-year-old Ng, is accused of forcing 36-year-old Cecilia Sue to perform oral sex, 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.
Lead prosecutor Tan Ken Hwee accused Ng of lying to the Corrupt Practices and Investigation Bureau.
He insisted Ng in fact, knew that Hitachi was sub-contracted for a CNB IT project.
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 phase one of the project.
So, it was only natural that Ng would have been involved in phase two of the project.
In court today, 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.
Yesterday, prosecution made seven applications to impeach Ng's credibility.
The Defence, led by Senior Counsel Tan Chee Meng then re-examined Ng on a few key issues.
One - the prosecution's proposition that Ms Sue performed oral sex on Ng as he was an important client.
To this, Ng said she "would never do such a thing for such a purpose".
Ng also refuted the suggestion that he embellished his relationship with Ms Sue.
On whether they had "routine" sex or "on and off" sex, Ng told the court he met Ms Sue routinely for meals and sometimes had sexual intimacy thereafter.
He also insisted there was no conflict of interest when he approved the IT projects.
Reading a CPIB statement, defence counsel Tan asked Ng who was the one who raised the issue of a sub-contract to Hitachi.
Ng replied it was the investigating officer.
Both parties are done questioning Ng and the defence has called Ms Sharon Yan of Oracle to the stand.
