Singapore Technologies Engineering (ST Engineering) announced that Chang Cheow Teck, the former President of ST Marine from March 2008 to April 2010, pleaded guilty to one charge under the Companies Act on January 5.
Chang was charged in December under the Companies Act for ignoring information that pointed to criminal activities at ST Marine. He was one of seven former senior employees of ST Marine charged for corruption at the firm.
Due to Chang acknowledging the criminal activities and indicated his willingness to plead guilty, the court sentenced him to a short detention order of 14 days.
The Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB) started investigations on certain transactions involving former and current employees of ST Marine in 2011. ST Marine said it has been extending its fullest cooperation to the investigation.
