SINGAPORE - Former Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) chief Peter Lim Sin Pang has been dismissed from public service, the Ministry of Home Affairs said on Saturday.

He was convicted in May of corruptly obtaining sex from a woman whose engineering company had later bid for a contract from his agency.

Lim was given a six-month jail term.
