A company director and a principal consultant have been charged for allegedly cheating the People’s Association (PA) and the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) of more than $77,000.
The duo – Jeffrey Ho Kiat, 54, a former principal consultant at IMDA, and Ng Sok Luan, 42, previously a director of Goldentree Innovations and Creative Futures Agency – were hauled to court on Tuesday (Jan 26) and each slapped with 12 counts of cheating.
In a media release, the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB) said that in 2018, both allegedly conspired to cheat PA by dishonestly concealing Ho’s interest in Goldentree.
They dishonestly induced PA into making payments, totalling almost $35,000, to Goldentree and two other companies via jobs awarded to these companies.
That same year, they also allegedly conspired to cheat IMDA by dishonestly concealing that Ho had an interest in Creative Futures.
