A woman was sentenced to 16 months’ jail for her role in a business arrangement that saw an associate receive nearly $500,000 in bribes.
Malaysian Chuah Hooi Fong, 59, had earlier pleaded guilty to four counts of giving bribes to Leong Chee Shian, 50, a former IT director of logistics company Schenker (Asia Pacific).
This was done to advance the business interests of two firms – of which Chuah was both director and shareholder – with Schenker.
In 2008, Chuah agreed to handle the management and implementation of a project for Schenker through Asia Management Link (AML), a company where she is sole director and shareholder.
In 2010, Chuah proposed for Schenker to adopt a second project, which sought to better manage the company’s printing requirements. She later handled the management and implementation of this project through a second company, AML Managed Services, where she is a director and shareholder.
