Ex-SCDF chief Peter Lim dismissed from civil service

 Former SCDF commissioner Peter Lim exits the Subordinate Courts after receiving his six-month jail sentence on Thursday, 13 June 2013

Ex-Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) chief Peter Lim, 52, has been dismissed from the civil service, said the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) on Saturday.

The Straits Times reported that the Public Service Commission made the decision following the conclusion of civil service disciplinary proceedings against Lim.

Earlier in May, Lim was convicted of corruptly obtaining sex from a 49-year-old woman whose engineering company had later bid for a contract from his agency.

He also pleaded guilty to a further seven charges involving two other women who were both working for companies that sold technology to SCDF.

He is now serving a six-month jail term, which commenced in June.
