A former assistant sales manager of Singapore Straits Wine Company was fined $3,000 on Monday (Dec 7) after pleading guilty to a corruption charge.
Malaysian Ee Chay Wea, 39, admitted to giving a bribe of $822 to David Ang Wei Xiong, 34, in May 2018.
Ang, a Chinese national, was then a marketing communications manager with luxury watch retailer Sincere Watch. Court documents did not state if he is still working for the company.
Another corruption charge was taken into consideration during Ee’s sentencing by District Judge Chee Min Ping.
The court heard that Ee had met Ang while she was buying a watch for her boyfriend in September 2017.
After observing that Sincere Watch served sparkling wine and champagne to its customers, Ee felt that there could be opportunities to get sales from the company.
