CPIB officer facing fraud charges: If allegations are true, Government must deal with it firmly

http://www.straitstimes.com/breaking-ne ... vernment-m

If allegations against the anti-graft officer who was charged in court earlier on Wednesday for misappropriating public funds are true, the Government will have to deal with it decisively and firmly, said Law Minister K. Shanmugam.

"Inevitably with human nature, you will have people who succumb to temptation, who do things they aren't supposed to do - whether in the Civil Service, banks, law firms or in institutions despite having the best controls," said Mr Shanmugam, who was speaking to reporters on the sidelines of this year's Singapore Law Week, held at the Supreme Court. "What we need to do is always be vigilant, be on top of it, and make sure these are the exceptions and they don't become the norm."

Edwin Yeo Seow Hiong, the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau's (CPIB) head of field research and technical support, was charged in court earlier with a total of 21 charges, including fraud and other related offences.

Prosecutors told the court that the first eight charges Yeo faces amount to a staggering $1.7 million worth of public funds.

If he could do this without an accomplice, something is wrong with the controls.

It's sad that these things come in a torrent. Like they say, it doesn't rain - it pours.
It's a bad period for the men charged with keeping us safe.

True, but troubling all the same. We were supposed to be better, now we are 'ordinary'.
