Singapore: Jail for man who took bribes for showing lenient construction site inspections of Singapore Customs building

A resident technical officer accepted more than $5,000 in bribes in return for showing leniency over the inspections of the Customs Operations Command Complex (COCC) construction site.

Lee Mun Cheng was jailed for 18 weeks and fined $7,000 on Tuesday (Oct 6).

The 53-year-old Singaporean was also ordered to pay a penalty of $5,319.78 which was the total amount of bribes he took.

He had earlier pleaded guilty to three counts each of corruption and falsification of accounts, and two counts of cheating.

Nineteen other charges were considered during sentencing. He committed the offences in 2017 and 2018.

His three alleged accomplices were working for construction firm Newcon Builders at the time.
