New witness takes stand in Ng Boon Gay’s case

AFTER four days of intense cross-examination by the prosecution, former anti-narcotics chief Ng Boon Gay left the witness stand to make way for another witness.

Yesterday morning, the prosecution continued casting doubt on his credibility, using the statements he gave to the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau to contradict his court testimony.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Tan Ken Hwee focused on the same areas as he did on Thursday, on whether Ng and Cecilia Sue’s affair lasted beyond August 2010, and whether he knew that her then-employer Hitachi Data Systems had been a sub-contractor of the Central Narcotics Bureau.

Ng, 46, maintained that the intimate relationship lasted from 2009 to 2011, and that the oral sex he received from Sue had nothing to do with business.

Next on the stand will be Sharon Yen from Oracle Corporation Singapore, who interviewed Sue on her relationship with Ng for the IT giant’s internal investigations into the case. — The Straits Times/Asia News Network
