A former executive director of operations at UBS Investment Bank, accused of having paid sex with an underage prostitute, indicated through his lawyer on Tuesday that he will claim trial.

Swiss national Juerg Buergin, 40, faces two charges in the online vice ring case involving a Singaporean girl who was not yet 18 when the offences were committed. His lawyer Selva K. Naidu said: 'In these circumstances, I would say he's doing ok.'

Buergin had a discovery conference on Tuesday, and will have another on Aug 7.

So far, nine men have either pleaded guilty or indicated they will not claim trial. Altogether, 48 men have been charged with having sex with the girl.

Three more plead guilty to sex with underage girl
Environment activist Shaw's lawyer says offence was 'an honest, reasonable mistake'



SINGAPORE - Prominent environment activist Howard Shaw's offence of having paid sex with an underage girl was a result of "an honest and reasonable mistake", his lawyers argued yesterday.

Based on the girl's "physical attributes", Senior Counsel Harpreet Singh said there are "solid grounds" for Shaw, or for anyone in his shoes, to have believed she was not a minor.

She was also "a few months short of 18" years of age at the time of the offence, added Mr Singh.

The Senior Counsel, who sought a non-custodial sentence for 41-year-old Shaw, said: "At all times, (Shaw) believed he was engaging in perfectly lawful activity under Singapore law, only to discover long after the fact that he had, in fact, been deceived by (the girl) and the agency as to her age."

The scion of the prominent Shaw family was among three men who pleaded guilty to having paid sex with the underage girl yesterday.

This brings to four the total number of men who had been convicted for having paid sex with the underage girl, following the arrest of 48 men charged in the high-profile vice case.

In deciding Shaw's sentence, Mr Singh argued yesterday it would be "essential to fairly and objectively revisit the correctness of the court's approach and decision" for former school Principal Lee Lip Hong, who was sentenced to nine weeks jail for having paid sex with the same underage girl.

Mr Singh argued that Parliament has not imposed a mandatory jail sentence nor even specified a minimum fine for the offence.

Under the Penal Code, anyone convicted of paid sex with a minor under 18 may be jailed up to seven years, or fined, or both.

"If Parliament intended that any offence under this section, whatever its nature or consequence might be, must be punished with jail, it would have provided for a minimum mandatory jail term, just as it has done with respect to many other offences," said Mr Singh.

The current legislative framework also imposes no obligation to check the minor's identity document, he argued. Even if his client had verbally asked the girl for her age, she could have lied that she was at least 18, Mr Singh added.

Chiang Meng Chuan, 32, who also pleaded guilty to the offence yesterday, had asked the girl for her age. The girl purportedly told Chiang she was 18 to 19 years old, the court heard. Indonesian Wilson Oei, 25, was the other man who pleaded guilty yesterday.

In Shaw's case, he came across the website touting escort services while surfing the Internet. According to court documents, he proceeded to contact the pimp, Tang Boon Thiew, and he had sex with the girl in October 2010. There was no contact with the girl after the encounter.

Mr Singh maintained his client's offence was at the lowest end of the culpability spectrum, as Shaw "did not deliberately or consciously target a minor".

"This case does not involve the type of predatory conduct or pattern of conscious and deliberate activity aimed at the sexual exploitation of minors," he said.

Shaw, who was accompanied by his 26-year-old wife, Jessie, and his sister yesterday, will be back in court again on July 30.

In April, he was the first of 48 men - charged with paying for sex with the same underage prostitute in a high-profile online vice ring probe - to plead guilty.

Mr Lee, 39, procured the services of the prostitute twice, in September and December 2010.

He was given a nine-week jail sentence, but was released after six weeks for good behaviour.

Alleged pimp faces 60 new charges



Tang Boon Thiew, the alleged pimp who was accused of heading an online vice ring, now faces 60 new charges.

Of these, 56 are for abetting commercial sex with a girl who was a minor, according to The Straits Times.

The rest are for offences under the Women's Charter for which Tang allegedly brought in two women - a 27-year-old Singaporean and a 25-year-old Malaysian - for prostitution here and living off their earnings, the newspaper added.

If convicted of living off earnings of a prostitute, Tang could be jailed up to five years and fined up to $10,000.

He has racked up 95 charges in all since November last year.

Forty-eight of his alleged clients were charged last month for having sex with the underage prostitute who was 17 at that time.

Tang allegedly took a cut of the $450 to $850 fees that the girl charged for her services.

One of his clients, former school principal Lee Lip Hong, recently pleaded guilty for having sex with the girl and was sentenced to nine weeks’ jail.

In that hearing, it was revealed that Tang arranged for Lee's sessions with the girl, using text messages to fix details of the price and meeting place, The Straits Times newspaper reported.

Other than this girl, 15 others are said to be represented by Tang.

The other men involved in the case will be going to court for a pre-trial conference next month.

There are also another 14 men who are being investigated for paying the minor for sex, the paper said.

The 49-year old is the founder of business consultancy Edward Whistler International Group.

On Wednesday, the date of offence on his second charge was amended to Oct 24, 2010 instead of Oct 24 last year. Goh told the court he still plans to claim trial to both charges of having paid sex with a girl under the age of 18.

Charges amended against man in underage-sex case

my paper

Tuesday, May 08, 2012



A 31-year-old manager who allegedly paid for sex with an underage girl on two occasions was in court yesterday, for a second time.

Chiang Meng Chuan - who was among 48 men hauled to court last month - had been charged with having commercial sex with the minor at Hotel 81 Bencoolen on Sept 23 and 29, 2010.

The prosecution yesterday tendered two amended charges which named the girl. She cannot be named here due to a gag order.

Chiang, who is represented by lawyer Alan Shankar, is due to appear in court again on June 11 - along with the other men who have been charged.

So far, only one of the accused has been convicted of having sex with the girl, whom they are said to have paid between $450 and $850 per session.

Former Pei Chun Public School principal Lee Lip Hong, 39, was sentenced to nine weeks' jail last month after pleading guilty to having paid sex with the minor at a budget hotel in September 2010.

A second charge of having sex with her in December that year was taken into consideration.

The men charged so far are believed to have sought the services of the Singaporean teenager through an online vice ring.

Their sessions, allegedly between September 2010 and February last year, took place in hotels ranging from budget hotels to premium establishments.

If convicted, the men could face imprisonment of up to seven years, a fine or both.

Underage sex scandal: Man back in court



Another suspect in the underage sex scandal case is back in court.

31-year-old manager Chiang Meng Chuan appeared in court today for his second appearance, reported The Straits Times.

He allegedly paid between $500 to $600 to have sex with an underage girl at Hotel 81 Bencoolen on two separate occasions in September 2010.

He was one of more than forty men who were charged last month for having commercial sex with a minor. The girl cannot be identified due to a gag order.

Chiang's case has been adjourned until June 11. He is being defended by Mr Alan Shankar.

He faces a jail term of up to seven years, a fine, or both if convicted.

Only one man has been convicted in the case so far. Former Pei Chun Public School principal Lee Lip Hong is now serving nine weeks in jail for the offence.

Underage prostitute deemed as victim in eyes of law



48 men were charged for having paid sex with an underage prostitute. The identity of the girl has not been revealed in the media. It is also unclear whether she will face charges in court.

S Radakrishnan, joint managing director, Bernard & Rada Law Corp, in an interview with RazorTV, said he thinks that the girl would not be charged as prostitution in Singapore is not an offence per se.

But under the Children and Young Persons Act, the director of social welfare has certain powers and can order the girl to be moved to a "place of safety", Mr Radakrishnan said. A place of safety is a home that is run by the Ministry of Community Development, Youth and Sports (MCYS).

"The girl's parents can also arrange for her to be moved to a place of safety," the senior lawyer added.

"In that sense, it would be a punishment for her as she would be sent there for training and perhaps rehabilitation."

But these powers are not easily enforced and the director has to invoke these powers.

The court has imposed a gag order on the girl's identity. It is an offence to republish any photo that may lead to the identification of the underage prostitute. For disobeying a gag order by the court, the offender can be jailed for up to a year and fined a maximum of $5,000.

According to a Straits Times report, Senior District Judge See Kee Oon in sentencing former school principal Lee Lip Hong, 39, said that the law regards the underage prostitute as the victim because she is underage and therefore deemed as incapable of having the capacity for mature judgement and discernment of an adult.

The judged said in his grounds of decision: "What the victim had done may be considered immoral by certain standards. However, this must be weighed against the morality of those whose demand for such services makes this a lucrative trade."

Lee was sentenced to a minimum nine-week jail term.

Section 376B of the Penal Code states that it is illegal to have paid sex with anyone under the age of 18. Anyone who does so may be jailed for up to seven years, fined up to $10,000, or both.

Principal jailed nine weeks for underage paid sex case



SINGAPORE: Former principal of Pei Chun Public School Lee Lip Hong has been sentenced to nine weeks' jail for having paid sex with a minor.

He pleaded guilty on Friday morning.

The court heard that Lee first came to know of the girl's services from an Internet vice website.

He then procured her services through the website, which stated the girl's age as 18 years old.

Lee's lawyer Melanie Ho told the court that her client was misled about the girl's real age.

She said that when he met the girl's pimp, Tang Boon Thiew, he was told that the girl was 19 years old.

Ms Ho said Lee had no reason to suspect that she was younger than her stated age on the website.

She said when Lee met the girl, she told him she was 19 years old.

Ms Ho said Lee did not suspect anything was wrong and had no reason to doubt her stated age, based on her physical appearance, demeanour and maturity.

Lee broke down during the court session as his lawyer pleaded for leniency

Ms Ho said her client was very remorseful and understood that he had made a very serious mistake.

Lee later requested to plead personally, telling the judge that even though he changed his mind and decided to engage a counsel, he never changed his decision to plead guilty.

He said he was fully ashamed of his actions, which have caused pain and harm to his family, especially his wife.

Lee said he had disappointed many who entrusted him to be their role model.

He also acknowledged that it was his personal lack of control of his own moral standards and his weak resistance to distractions that led to his mistake.

Lee's lawyer had pleaded to the court to impose a fine.

14 men still under probe for paid sex with underage girl
Not all may be charged; latest batch includes Singaporeans and foreigners


Another 14 men are still being investigated for allegedly paying for sex with an underage girl in a case that has already landed 48 men in court.

The latest batch is believed to include both Singaporeans and foreigners, some of whom may no longer be in the country.

From initial reports of around 80 men being involved in the case, investigators have narrowed down the list to 62 men who may have had links with the underage girl, sources told The Straits Times.

The sources added that the final number charged may be smaller than 62.

The girl at the centre of the scandal is said to have had sex with the men about two years ago while she was aged below 18.

As a result, 48 of her clients were arrested and charged last week under Section 376B of the Penal Code, which prohibits paid sex with a minor under 18 years old.

Some among the newest batch being investigated may face similar charges, and it is believed they will be the last batch of men produced in court in connection with this case.

Sources said they do not include high-profile personalities, unlike the 48 who had among them a school principal, a teacher, a green activist, military officers, an in-house lawyer for the National Environment Agency, and a police superintendent who was the ex-head of strategic planning at Police Training Command.

A source said the last batch includes more 'ordinary' people and businessmen.

The man who had allegedly pimped the girl on his social escort website, Tang Boon Thiew, is himself expected to face more charges. These include offences under both the Penal Code and the Women's Charter.

In November, the 39-year-old was already slapped with 34 counts under the Women's Charter, for living off the earnings of a prostitute - an offence that carries a jail term of up to five years, and a fine of up to $10,000.

He was also charged with one count of paid sex with a minor under 18 years old, believed to be the same girl.

Tang went into the social escort business after learning from another pimp how lucrative the business was.

He was then already the owner of a successful digital marketing firm. The firm had counted among its clients social escort agencies that it helped by placing advertisements online linked to Google's search engine results.

Tang has not been seen in public since his name and pictures surfaced recently and is believed to be holed up at his home in the western part of Singapore.

Among the 48 men charged, former River Valley High School teacher Chua Ren Cheng, 31, will be back in court today for the next mention of his case.

He and former Pei Chun Public School principal Lee Lip Hong, 39, have told the court they intend to plead guilty.

Most of the remaining 46 are claiming trial. They will return to court in June for a discovery conference, during which their lawyers will meet the prosecution to exchange information regarding the case.

Meanwhile, speculation continues to be rife online about the identity of the girl, despite a court-imposed gag order.

On Tuesday, the Singapore Committee for UN Women came out in support of the gag order.

In a statement, it also said the charging of the 48 men showed the Government's commitment to protecting vulnerable young people from exploitation.

'Adult men who take the initiative to engage in the morally questionable act of purchasing sexual services should be responsible for respecting the law and ensure they are not subjecting young girls to commercial sexual exploitation,' said Ms Pia Bruce, executive director of the committee that had campaigned for Section 376B to be in the Penal Code.

While prostitution is not illegal here, having sex with a prostitute under 18 is a crime under the law, which was introduced in 2008 to prevent the exploitation of underage girls for prostitution.

If found guilty, the 48 men charged so far can be jailed for up to seven years, fined or given both.

Former grassroots leader and teacher Chua Ren Cheng charged for having SEX with underage prostitute

Besides the former principal of Pei Chun Public School Lee Lip Hong, a former teacher and Head of Department in Jurong Junior College Chua Ren Cheng was charged in court on Wednesday for having commercial sex with the same underage prostitute!



Said to be a popular teacher among students and a fast rising star in the education sector, Chua tendered his resignation abruptly in January this year, much to the surprise of fellow colleagues. He studied his ‘A’ levels at Hwa Chong Junior College before pursuing a Masters in Radiation Physics with Medical Applications at University College, London.

Chua was also a grassroots leader and the former Chairman of Taman Jurong Youth Executive Committee (YEC). His profile on the website of the People’s Association has since been removed:

According to media reports, Chua reportedly hanged out frequently with Lee and another unnamed teacher and the three of them used to patronize prostitutes together. It is not known if Chua is a PAP member as well.

Lee Lip Hong was among the first batch of 44 men charged on Monday for having sex with a minor. He has pleaded guilty and told the media that he is willing to be punished for his mistake.

Other men include 9 civil servants, a senior banker, a company director, a senior vice-president of a private company, lawyers, a senior police officer, as well as the former principal of Pei Chun Public School Lee Lip Hong. Their ages range from between 21 to 48 years old.

Former principal charged for commercial sex with minor

SINGAPORE - Lee Lip Hong, the former principal of Pei Chun Public School has been charged in court for having paid sex with an underage girl, The Straits Times reported.

He is among the 44 men to be charged in court today under Section 376B(1) of the Penal Code, Chapter 224 for prostitution of minor under 18.

The 39-year-old is reportedly the only one who admitted to the two charges of having paid $500 on each of the two occasions for sex with the under-aged girl.

He had sex with her at Hotel 81 Bencoolen on Sept 26 and Dec 14, 2010.

Previous reports have stated that he has a son from a marriage of over 10 years.

Reports first broke in February on the bust of an online vice syndicate which employed under-aged girls, which saw 80 men reportedly being implicated.

The suspects included high ranking men from both public and private organisations, and comprised of both bachelors and married men.

Among those charged include a police superintendent Tan Wee Kiat, 35, and ex-National Environment Agency in-house Counsel Chia Kok Peng, 38.

The men are said to range in age from their 20s to 50s, and are believed to have paid for sex with a Singaporean girl two years ago.

List of 44 Men Charged for Having SEX with Underage Student

List of 44 Men Charged for Having SEX with Underage Student: Besides Lee Lip Hong, the ex-principal of Pei Chun Public School, 43 other men were charged in court on Monday for having sex with a minor including 9 civil servants, a senior banker, a company director, a senior vice-president of a private company, lawyers, a senior police officer, as well as a scholarship recipient.Their ages range from between 21 to 48 years old.

The men are accused of having sex with the same 16 year old student who was moonlighting as a freelance prostitute for the online vice syndicate busted by the police last year.

She was described as slim, 1.63m tall with C-cup breasts and weighs 48kg with the following ‘introduction’ on the porn website:

“(She) still has that naive girlishness, offers excellent sweet young thing, girlfriend experience….Advance booking for (her) is required, don’t leave it to least minute booking as it always almost won’t work!”

She was reportedly so popular that some men paid to have sex with her more than three times. Her identity cannot be named as she is still considered a ‘juvenile’ under Singapore laws though she already slept with many men.

According to media reports, it was the pimp Tang Boon Thiew who sold the men out by revealing their particulars to the police. He has not been charged in court yet for any offences.

Around 30 men are expected to appear in court on Monday for their alleged involvement with an online vice ring that is suspected to have employed an underage girl.

They include a naval officer, a managing director, businessmen, finance industry professionals and an Indonesian entrepreneur.

They range in age from their 20s to 50s, and comprise both married men and bachelors.

Veteran criminal lawyer Subhas Anandan, who is representing 13 men, said most of his clients had to report to the Police Headquarters in Cantonment Road on Saturday and were served charges then. All are from the private sector.

Lee Lip Hong, former principal of Pei Chun Public School, is the only one among the men charged to plead guilty to having paid sex with an underage girl. -- PHOTOS: JOSEPH NAIR FOR THE STRAITS TIMES


80 men were reportedly implicated.


These men hiding their faces from press photographers are believed to have been involved in an online vice syndicate which employed under-aged girls.


44 men were charged in court on Monday under Section 376B(1) of the Penal Code, Chapter 224 for prostitution of minor under 18.


The suspects included high ranking men from both public and private organisations, and comprised of both bachelors and married men.


The men are said to range in age from their 20s to 50s, and are believed to have paid for sex with a Singaporean girl two years ago.


A list that revealed the names of the syndicate's clients were among the items that were seized in the island-wide raid.


The public servants were implicated when Criminal Investigation Department (CID) and the Police Intelligence Department (PID) carried out raids against the vice syndicate in late December last year

Former principal charged for commercial sex with minor

SINGAPORE - Lee Lip Hong, the former principal of Pei Chun Public School has been charged in court for having paid sex with an underage girl, The Straits Times reported.

He is among the 44 men to be charged in court today under Section 376B(1) of the Penal Code, Chapter 224 for prostitution of minor under 18.

The 39-year-old is reportedly the only one who admitted to the two charges of having paid $500 on each of the two occasions for sex with the under-aged girl.

He had sex with her at Hotel 81 Bencoolen on Sept 26 and Dec 14, 2010.

Previous reports have stated that he has a son from a marriage of over 10 years.

Reports first broke in February on the bust of an online vice syndicate which employed under-aged girls, which saw 80 men reportedly being implicated.

The suspects included high ranking men from both public and private organisations, and comprised of both bachelors and married men.

Among those charged include a police superintendent Tan Wee Kiat, 35, and ex-National Environment Agency in-house Counsel Chia Kok Peng, 38.

The men are said to range in age from their 20s to 50s, and are believed to have paid for sex with a Singaporean girl two years ago.

List of 44 Men Charged for Having SEX with Underage Student

List of 44 Men Charged for Having SEX with Underage Student: Besides Lee Lip Hong, the ex-principal of Pei Chun Public School, 43 other men were charged in court on Monday for having sex with a minor including 9 civil servants, a senior banker, a company director, a senior vice-president of a private company, lawyers, a senior police officer, as well as a scholarship recipient.Their ages range from between 21 to 48 years old.

The men are accused of having sex with the same 16 year old student who was moonlighting as a freelance prostitute for the online vice syndicate busted by the police last year.

She was described as slim, 1.63m tall with C-cup breasts and weighs 48kg with the following ‘introduction’ on the porn website:

“(She) still has that naive girlishness, offers excellent sweet young thing, girlfriend experience….Advance booking for (her) is required, don’t leave it to least minute booking as it always almost won’t work!”

She was reportedly so popular that some men paid to have sex with her more than three times. Her identity cannot be named as she is still considered a ‘juvenile’ under Singapore laws though she already slept with many men.

According to media reports, it was the pimp Tang Boon Thiew who sold the men out by revealing their particulars to the police. He has not been charged in court yet for any offences.

The list of 44 men charged in court today are:

LOL hide face for what? If I were guilty of something I'd stand by my misdeeds and let the photographers have a field day.

The photog also power leh, cover face liao still go low angle shot, swarming around like piranhas smelling fresh blood. Lets see, umbrella, baseball cap + sunglasses is of no use, plastic bags or clothings more useful in covering ones' face. They should try a balaclava + sunglasses + wig.

There seems to be alot of holes in this case.
- Did the accused know she was underage?
- Did the prostitute declare her age or did she falsify her age?
- Entrapment?
