SINGAPORE - 'Star witness' in sex-for-contracts case has throngs of men waiting outside court building hoping to catch a glimpse of her.
Each time she steps out of the car or out of the Subordinate Court building, you'd definitely hear the word "pretty".
Inevitably, there'd be someone among the hordes of male gawkers asking another: "So how ah? Is she pretty?"
The men, who were generally in their mid-40s or 50s, admitted that they turned up at Havelock Road for one reason: Ms Cecilia Sue Siew Nang.
Ms Sue, 36, was the prosecution's "star witness" in the corruption trial of former Central Narcotics Bureau chief Ng Boon Gay.
The first part of the trial ended on Tuesday and it will resume on Oct 31. Ng, 46, faces four charges of corruptly obtaining oral sex from Ms Sue between June and December last year.
But it isn't just the case itself that attracted the men who turn up at court during the trial.
Mr Lau Huat Chai, 55, confessed that he was there mainly to gawk at the star witness. He was waiting outside the court at around noon on Monday.
