SMS messages from Cecilia Sue saved ex-CNB chief

SINGAPORE - It was Ms Cecilia Sue's text messages to Mr Ng Boon Gay that confirmed the intimate nature of their relationship.

It also contradicted her court testimony that they did not have a sexual relationship, in contrast to what she told the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau in an earlier statement.

On July 2, 2011, when Mr Ng was alleged to have forced Ms Sue to perform oral sex on him for the first time, she sent him this message: "I could have spent three hours with you. You had fun?"

On Dec 5, 2011, three days after Mr Ng was accused of forcing Ms Sue to perform oral sex on him at Mount Faber, she sent him an SMS which read: "MU". This meant "miss you".

On Dec 6, 2011, Ms Sue sent another SMS to Mr Ng: "U ignore me..."

Later that day, she followed up with this message: "With her? Where's family day?"

On Dec 15, 2011, six days after Mr Ng allegedly forced Ms Sue to perform oral sex on him at a Singapore General Hospital carpark, she sent him a message asking "Did u DIY?". The term DIY was understood to be referring to masturbation.

The judge said: "It would be surprising to see such conduct from someone who had been the subject of forced oral sex.

"Evidence of exchange of numerous other messages and the regular late-night phone conversations between them would suggest an existing relationship leading to the irresistible inference that the accused could not have forced himself on Ms Sue."
