Former Fratelli Cosulich employee faces corruption charges in Singapore

Singapore’s Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB) has announced that a former Fratelli Cosulich Bunkers employee has been charged in court with alleged corruption to accepting bribes from his company’s contractors.

Wan Wei Hong, former technical manager for bunker supplier Fratelli Cosulich, committed the offences sometime between 2017 and 2019.

The 45-year-old Wan faces five charges of corruptly obtaining gratification amounting to a total of SGD65,350 ($47,800) from three companies. Three persons from the three companies involved are Aung Kyaw Oo of Techways Technical Services & Supply, Ang Kian Siong of Aquatronics International, and Ng Sen Beng of Osis Service Singapore.

All three companies were contractors of Fratelli Cosulich Bunkers at that time.

The shady transactions were inducement for Wan to help advance the business interests of their companies with Fratelli Cosulich Bunkers.

CPIB added that Ng faces three counts of corruptly giving Wan gratification amounting to SGD59,750 as an inducement for Wan.

“Singapore adopts a strict zero tolerance approach towards corruption. Any person who is convicted of a corruption offence can be fined up to SGD100,000 or sentenced to imprisonment of up to five years or to both,” CPIB stated.
