Singapore: PR sentenced to 8 months’ jail for taking over $92,000 in bribes

A Chinese national was sentenced to eight months’ jail on Wednesday (July 22) for accepting bribes that amounted to more than $92,000.

The Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB) said in a statement that permanent resident Zhou Weiqiang, 55, received the bribes in the form of corrupt commissions from companies when he was the assistant spare parts manager for Tiong Woon Enterprise, a company that sells spare parts and equipment for cranes.

The crimes were committed between January 2011 and September 2014, when Zhou was responsible for getting quotes from companies for the purchase of spare parts for cranes.
