Singapore High Court Sets Out Revised Sentencing Framework for Private Sector Corruption Offences Under Sections 6(a) and (b) of Prevention of Corruption Act

17 Nov 2022 CaseWatch

The General Division of the Singapore High Court (High Court) has, in Goh Ngak Eng v Public Prosecutor [2022] SGHC 254, set out a revised sentencing framework for private sector corruption offences under sections 6(a) and (b) of the Prevention of Corruption Act modelled after the two-stage, five-step framework in Logachev Vladislav v Public Prosecutor [2018] 4 SLR 609.

This update takes a look at the High Court’s decision, which also serves as a salutary reminder of the importance of ensuring that all business dealings remain graft-free as well as the consequences of failing to do so.
