Former ST Marine official sentenced to 16 weeks jail

A court in Singapore has sentenced Tan Mong Seng, former president of commercial affairs of Singapore shipbuilder ST Marine, to jail for 16 weeks for 101 charges of making false entries in the company’s petty cash vouchers.

The illicit payments in the charges amounted to S$419,994 ($299,589).

Tan, along with Mok Kim Whang and former ST Marine senior president and former ST Marine chief operating officier Han Yew Kwang, were charged with corruption in 2014 and 2015 for making false claims as reimbursement of entertainment expenses.

The three men are among seven former ST Marine senior officials who have been charged over corruption. Tan is the sixth person to have been sentenced.

A pre-trial conference has been scheduled on April 27 for Tan’s remaining 345 charges, which were stood down during his trial.
