A former sales executive with the Singapore Straits Wine Company (SWC) was fined $12,000 on Wednesday (Jan 20) for his role in a graft case involving around $6,000.
Micael Musoni, who pleaded guilty to three corruption charges linked to some $3,000, had suggested that the bribes to a client be masked as fees for “sommelier training”.
Five other similar charges involving the remaining amount were taken into consideration during sentencing.
The 31-year-old Italian man will have to spend 24 days behind bars if he is unable to pay his fine.
Musoni is the second former SWC employee to be dealt with in court for graft.
Malaysian Ee Chay Wea, 39, an ex-assistant sales manager, was fined $3,000 in December last year after pleading guilty to a corruption charge.
