Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong who is in Davos, Switzerland for the annual World Economic Forum (WEF) Meeting told Singapore reporters ,”Whoever he is, whichever position he occupies, we will pursue the matter and settle it one way or another.” These were PM Lee’s first comments on the case surrounding Mr. Peter Lim Sin Pang and Mr Ng Boon Gay, the former chiefs of Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) and the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB), respectively.

A statement from Ministry of Home Affairs yesterday said that there was “no delay” in releasing the news of the probe. Interviews by the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB) started on December 19 for one of the men and January 4 for the other.
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Home Affairs, Teo Chee Hean speaking to the reporters last night said, “I am quite disappointed these two cases have arisen. Nevertheless, it demonstrates the strength of our system, which is that any such allegations will be fully and thoroughly investigated.”
The great mystery surrounding the woman involved in the case seems to have dissolved. Her friends were shocked by her ‘double life’. Those who know her said that she was friendly but believed that she was not the flirty type. She stood out from her woman colleagues because of her striking appearance.
At the time the events happened she was working as a Sales Director in a Japanese multinational company. A local IT company boss who was familiar with the way business is done at the woman’s previous firm said that the sales executives there had to meet clients often as they have to provide a lot of after-sales support. It is normal to entertain on the job and there are ample opportunities for interaction at dinner parties and other social events. The woman’s husband, the director of a few companies, has not made any comments so far.
