In a bid to secure business contracts involving projects with government agencies, a company director paid over $30,000 in bribes.
Ngiam Chee Chong, 45, was jailed for 12 weeks on Thursday (Oct 29), having pleaded guilty to seven corruption-related charges earlier.
Another 13 similar charges were taken into consideration by District Judge Brenda Tan during sentencing.
Court documents state that Ngiam was the sole director of Emersion IT Services, which is in the business of setting up and implementing network services.
Between 2016 and 2018, he paid a total of $37,400 in bribes to Teo Joo Tye, 52, who was then working as a senior technical services manager for IT firm NCS.
