The Singapore Police Force has issued a statement on its Facebook page today distancing Police Commissioner Ng Joo Hee from ex-NCS Director Esther Goh who was alleged to have provided sexual services to disgraced ex-SCDF Chief Peter Lim Sin Pang.
The statement was made in response to a photograph featuring Mr Ng presenting a token of appreciation to Ms Esther Goh which has been circulating widely on the internet.
Mr Ng has expressed deep ‘regrets’ that “the photograph has been misused by irresponsible persons online as a basis for making vulgarities, inanities and all manner of mischievous innuendos.”
Ho Yenn Dar, the Assistant Director of Media Relations, SPF took pains to stress that Mr Ng is not acquainted with Ms Goh and the photograph in question was taken during a Police charity concert to benefit the Community Chest on 12 October 2011.
During the event, Mr Ng presented tokens to donors who gave more than $10,000, including Ms Goh who represented NCS.
“It will be unfortunate and most unfair should the Community Chest and the charities that it supports suffer because of the actions of a few misguided and irresponsible individuals,” the statement ended.
