Seafood company owner faces 223 corruption charges

SINGAPORE: The sole-proprietor of a seafood company has been charged with 223 counts of corruption involving S$992,403.90. 56-year-old Tay Ee Tiong who owns Wealthy Seafood Product and Enterprise allegedly gave bribes to 19 chefs, including some from well-known hotels, between 2006 and 2009. Court papers state that they came from restaurants and hotels including the Marriott, the Grand Hyatt as well as the Shangri-la. It's believed Tay gave the chefs between S$232 and S$24,143.40 in bribes to ensure that their employers would continue buying seafood products from his firm. MediaCorp understands that the chefs haven't been charged in court. Tay is represented by lawyer, Choo Si Sen, and his pre-trial conference will be held on April 21. If convicted, Tay can be jailed up to five years and fined a maximum of S$100,000 for each corruption charge.
