Businessman in online vice case allowed to travel overseas

Businessman Edward Whistler Goh Ngian Meng sought permission from the court on Wednesday to leave Singapore for a business trip.

The 49-year-old was granted permission to travel from May 20 until his disclosure conference on June 11.

Goh, who is the founder of a business consultancy, faces two charges of having sex with an underage girl.

Goh told the court he intends to claim trial to both charges.

Forty-eight men have been charged for having sex with the same girl. Last month, former school principal Lee Lip Hong, 39, was jailed nine weeks for paid sex with the girl twice.
