Singapore: Former SMRT employee charged with taking more than S$54,000 in bribes from suppliers

A former assistant buyer from transport operator SMRT was charged on Friday (Aug 20) with multiple corruption and forgery offences, allegedly committed between 2015 and last year.

Soh Choon Heng, 43, was handed nine charges of taking more than S$54,000 in bribes from three directors of supply firms, as well as four other forgery charges.

Two directors — Yong Ming Jun, 38, from Euro Bremse; and Wong King Mooi, 46, from electrical works firm CEE Technologies — were also charged alongside Soh. They face five and three corruption charges respectively.

Soh is accused of obtaining at least S$24,450 in gratification from Yong between 2016 and last year, as a reward for providing Yong with information of quotations that competitor vendors submitted to SMRT.

This was to advance the business interests of Euro Bremse, which deal in automobile spare parts.
