People, Places, Religion No Comments

A 51-year-old man, Charlie Lim Chau Lee, was jailed for six months for asking another person to take the rap (blame) for his traffic offence. Charlie was caught speeding by a speed trap camera along Lornie Road at 4pm on 18 August 2008. He received a summons from the Traffic Police, informing him of a fine of S$150 and six demerit points. Charlie Lim then approached 39-year-old woman, Lim Ah Hwa, to take the blame.

Charlie gave Miss Lim S$150 for the fine and gave her an additional S$300 as a “reward”. Miss Lim case will be heard in court on 8th October 2010.

In a separate incident, Charlie Lim was also fined S$1,000 for failing to stop when the traffic lights turned red at the junction of Victoria and Arab Streets by a Red-Light Camera at around 9pm on 28 December 2008. His ex-colleague, 54-year-old Benny Sng Kwee Hock, took the rap for this offense. Mr. Sng was sentenced to six weeks’ jail as he had intentionally perverted the course of justice.
