Ng Boon Gay, the former anti-drug agency chief acquitted of corruption charges last year, has been retired from public service with effect from Wednesday.
The Public Service Commission (PSC) made the decision “in the public interest”, a Home Affairs Ministry spokesman told The Straits Times.
It followed the end of civil service disciplinary proceedings, which could also have resulted in dismissal or demotion.
Ng, 47, had faced four counts of obtaining sexual gratification from Cecilia Sue, 36, in exchange for furthering the business interests of her then employers.
District Judge Siva Shanmugam found that Ng had “no ulterior motive” in the trysts, which were part of an intimate relationship.
The PSC scholarship recipient enjoyed an illustrious career, joining the police force in 1991. He rose through the ranks, becoming head of the Criminal Investigation Department in 2008.
He left the force to helm the Central Narcotics Bureau in February 2011. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
