Han Yew Kwang, former chief operating officer and deputy president of Singapore shipbuilder ST Marine, has been sentenced to six months in jail and fined $80,000 by a local court.
Han was the second of seven former ST Marine senior executives sentenced in the graft scandal and the first to be given a jail term. He had earlier pleaded guilty to 50 out of 407 charges, including one corruption charge and 49 charges of conspiring to use false entries to mask bribes.
In 2015, Patrick Lee Swee Ching, ST Marine’s former financial controller was fined S$210,000 for helping falsify documents to cover up alleged corrupt payments.
Han is now out on bail, pending an appeal against his sentence.
