:yikes: :yikes: ... corruption

SINGAPORE: Peter Khoo Chong Meng, former senior vice president of the English and Malay News Division at Singapore Press Holdings (SPH), was on Tuesday charged in court with 10 counts of corruption and criminal breach of trust.

If he pleads guilty, the prosecution will proceed with two charges of corruption and one charges of criminal breach of trust.

49—year—old Khoo allegedly obtained gratifications amounting to S$83,500 from Liaw Kim Chew in exchange for furthering Liaw’s business.

Khoo, who has been with SPH for 22 years, headed the committee which organised events to raise funds for The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund.

Khoo is believed to have received between S$5,000 and S$30,000 from Liaw on eight occasions from July 2006 to August 2010.

In return, Khoo allegedly awarded Liaw with business deals from SPH’s Editorial Project Unit, which Khoo was in charge of.

On one occasion, Khoo awarded Liaw with the business deal of supplying 100,000 coin banks to the Editorial Project Unit.

In addition, Khoo also allegedly took shopping vouchers, which were for branding and promotion activities of the Straits Times.

Khoo allegedly misappropriated two Capita vouchers, valued at S$11,547 and S$11,548, on two occasions between 29 May 2007 and 1 July 2010.

Khoo was dismissed from SPH in September 2010.

Khoo, who arrived in court with his lawyers, appeared grim as his charges were read out.

Khoo, who is represented by Mr Alfonso Ang, declined to speak to the media.

He is out on an extended bail of S$115,000.

He will be back in court on 10 July.
