Posted by temasektimes on July 5, 2012
Disgraced ex-commissioner of Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) Peter Lim Sin Pang will be claiming trial to 10 counts of obtaining sexual gratification from three women between May 2010 and November 2011 in exchange for favouring their companies during IT-related tenders held by the SCDF.
One of the women, former NCS director of business development Ester Goh Tok Mui. reportedly had sex with him seven times in his Tanjong Rhu apartment which he lives with his wife.
Other than his own apartment, Peter Lim is said to have engaged in sexual trysts with Goh in public places such as at various car parks and three times in a Clementi flat. Goh has since left NCS.
Peter Lim also engaged in oral sex with Pang Chor Mui, a general manager at Nimrod Engineering, at a carpark near the Singapore Indoor Stadium; and sex and oral sex with Lee Wei Hoon, a director at Singapore Radiation Centre a carpark at Big Splash in East Coast Park and in a hotel in Paris.
Lim’s lawyers had earlier taken issue with the charges, describing them as ‘very general in nature’ and ‘lacking clarity’. They also want to know how Lim’s alleged offences had advanced the business interests of the women involved in the case.
A pre-trial conference will be held on August 24.
