The BP Singapore bunker trial has been adjourned to 29 March 2021, a representative from the Attorney-General’s Chambers told Singapore bunker publication Manifold Times on Tuesday (8 December).
The hearing was originally fixed for mention in early November, but did not take place on 8 December after a reschedule.
To date, Judge Ong has found the Executive Director of Pacific Prime Trading, Koh Seng Lee, and former Regional Marine Manager of BP Singapore, Clarence Chang, each guilty of 20 charges under Section 6(a) of the Prevention of Corruption Act, Cap 241., otherwise known as the Prevention of Corruption Act which is the primary anti-corruption law in Singapore.
The latest development saw DPP Jiang Ke-Yue and DPP Loh Hui-min recommending a 92-month imprisonment sentence for both Koh and Chang under a new sentencing framework for corruption offences.
