Peter Lim’s lawyer raised questions on charges
Posted by temasektimes on June 14, 2012
Peter Lim was slapped with 10 charges of corruption on June 6 for allegedly obtaining sexual favours from three women in exchange for furthering their companies’ business interests.
His lawyer Mr Bala Chandran said the phrase “assisting to further the business interest” was too general and did not state specifically if tenders or contracts were involved.
Mr Chandran’s comments came after similar comments made by lawyers of former CNB chief Ng Boon Gay who was charged with four counts of corruption.
