Ex-table tennis chief acquitted of misappropriating funds to pay coach

District Judge Lim Tse Haw said that Choo Wee Kiang, 58, had not dishonestly misappropriated $8,400 of funds from the Singapore Table Tennis Association (STAA) to pay Mr Luo Jie, who moonlighted as a table tennis coach at Fuhua Secondary School between 2001 and 2003. The judge also held that Choo had not intended to cause wrongful loss to the association, nor wrongful gain to the coach, since the money was already contractually due to him.
