SINGAPORE – Former Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) chief Peter Lim Sin Pang was dismissed from service today (Aug 31), the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) confirmed. The decision was taken by the Public Service Commission following the conclusion of civil service disciplinary proceedings against Lim, a MHA spokesperson said.

Lim, 52, was found guilty on May 31 of corruptly obtaining oral sex from the ex-General Manager of Nimrod Engineering, Ms Pang Chor Mui, in exchange for business favours with the SCDF.

He also admitted to the facts in seven similar corruption charges last week involving two other women: Ms Kelly Lee Wei Hoon, the Director of Singapore Radiation Centre and Ms Esther Goh Tok Mui, the Director of Business Development of NCS.
