A PUB officer duped his colleagues into approving almost $2 million in purchases that were awarded to businesses controlled by him. The Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB) revealed this in a press release yesterday (21 Jul).

The accused, Mohamed Sa’ad Bin Mohamed Ali, was attached to PUB’s Choa Chu Kang Waterworks as a Technical Officer. CPIB said that he cheated several of his colleagues into believing that he had sourced for quotations from the open market to approve quotations for various purchase orders worth $1,981,175.

CPID said: “Sa’ad had also allegedly used the benefits gained from these purchase orders to acquire a vehicle, an insurance policy, a Gold Certificate, a factory unit, and to repay his mortgage loans.”

“Using underhanded methods to deceive your employer in order to cover up your ill-gotten gains will eventually land you in hot water,” the Bureau warned.
