SINGAPORE - The woman at the centre of former Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) commissioner Peter Benedict Lim Sin Pang's sex-for-contracts trial did not receive any commission from her company's contracts.

Ms Pang Chor Mui, the then-general manager of Nimrod Engineering, a security solutions company that had dealings with SCDF, was also not a shareholder, the court heard on Tuesday.

Nimrod's sales manager, Mr Lee Yong Chin, said this under cross-examination from Lim's lawyer, Mr Hamidul Haq, on the second day of the trial.

Mr Lee said he is one of the company's shareholders and receives a 1 per cent commission on sales.

Mr Haq then drew the court's attention to a previous contract for $13,000 that SCDF had awarded Nimrod in 2009 for walk-through metal detectors.

Mr Lee told the court that his commission for this was $130. To which Mr Haq responded: "I wanted to know who would offer their body and soul for that amount."

Lim, 52, faces one charge of corruptly obtaining oral sex from Ms Pang in exchange for showing favour and advancing Nimrod's business interests with the SCDF.
