MHA suspends IT contracts handled by ex-SCDF Chief Peter Lim involved in sex scandal

Posted by temasektimes on June 8, 2012

The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has suspended on all outstanding IT tenders handled by ex-SCDF Chief Peter Lim Sin Pang who was embroiled in a sex scandal.

Peter Lim was charged in court on Wednesday with 10 counts of corruption for allegedly obtaining sexual gratification from three women between May 2010 and November 2011 – Lee Wei Hoon, a director of Singapore Radiation Centre, Pang Chor Mui, a general manager at Nimrod Engineering and Esther Goh Tok Mui from NCS Pte Ltd.

He was accused of having oral sex at various carparks in Singapore as well as vaginal sex in his condominiums as well as a hotel in Paris, France.

In a statement issued to the press, MHA said:

“We took immediate action to suspend all outstanding tenders involving ex-SCDF Chief Peter Lim and the persons implicated in the case once we learnt he was under Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB) investigation.”

It added that the companies implicated in the case provided IT products and services to SCDF, and the persons involved are “no longer servicing SCDF’s accounts.”

Peter Lim was a PSC scholar and a top civil servant before his spectacular fall from grace. He was not particularly well-liked by his subordinates during his tenure as SCDF Chief as he reportedly cut the allowances for NSFs serving in the civil defence.

    I wonder whether in Spore there is a claw-back clause in that if contracts were corruptly awarded, then such contracts be cancelled and that any costs incurred by clawed back from the corrupt parties. Perhaps the governement should look into all contracts involving the accused.

    And any company involved with corruption are barred from further tendering irrespective on how well know or capable they are. The companies are responsible for the actions of their staff in the execution of their duties.

    This is an interesting case. There have been major corruption cases involved up to a Minister who later committed suicide. Greed and lust are often the cause of much grief.

    How did all these PSC elite and top civil servants move up the `stringent’ promotion ladder and selection process? The system must be rotten to allow rotten apples to climb right up to the top so smoothly without any checks and balances to detect any hidden fetishes, vices or mental dysthymic disorders?

  3. No wonder your population is zero growth. Your soerm went to the wrong orifices

  4. Life’s like that. Just when u think u’re riding high and untouchable as a big brass, payback time is close by and u suddenly find urself in the dumps. An example that our PAPie big wigs may want to be mindful of as the next GE is less than 4 years from now.

    Anyone can verified if he is being paid at a reduced rate by SCDF? From wan bao, it seems that he is still on govt pay roll.

    I have true but sad story. A fellow colleague climbed and climbed up the career ladder. He thought he was smart, even did some harm to others (the stories came out later). Then one day a major accident happened at work under his command. He fell from grace, got terribly stressed, later got fired…. all that he aimed for was gone. And it was a very big MNC that he was working with.

    Yes, the higher you climb, the bigger the fall.

    despite his loyalty, nobody helping him now, move far far away from him act as though don’t know him. actually also not smart la, if he go nightclub with some companies head then threesome 10-some, all paid for by the heads, not that easy to trace as compared to actual sex with the one who handle the tender.

    i am not saying it is right to get favors of any kind when awarding tenders as no matter how long, sooner or later it will come back to haunt him. don’t abuse your authority in any ways, no matter how minor. be accountable to yourself, have faith, stay good.

  10. payback is a b***h ain’t it?!… haha
