MHA suspends IT contracts handled by ex-SCDF Chief Peter Lim involved in sex scandal
Posted by temasektimes on June 8, 2012
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.
