CPIB officer's fraud case to be heard next month

SINGAPORE - The Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB) officer who was charged last month for misappropriating at least $1.7 million from the anti-graft agency was back in court on Tuesday, but this time with a defence counsel in tow.

Mr Tan Hee Joek, the lawyer representing CPIB assistant director Edwin Yeo Seow Hiong, asked the court for a four-week adjournment so that representations can be made to the Attorney-General's Chambers. The case against Yeo, 39, who faces a total of 21 charges, will be heard in a month.
