CAD interviews KTL Global CFO, asks for documents in probe into possible Penal Code offence

SINGAPORE'S Commercial Affairs Department has requested documents and information from KTL Global and interviewed its chief financial officer, Ng Kok Peng, as part of an investigation into a possible offence under the Penal Code, the offshore services company announced in a Singapore Exchange filing on Wednesday night.

The CAD did not provide further details of the investigation, and KTL's business and operations are not affected and will continue as normal, the company said.

KTL stated that it will cooperate with the CAD and will make further announcements as and when there are further significant developments concerning this matter.

The Penal Code deals with law relating to criminal offences.

In October 2017, KTL Global announced that the CAD and the Monetary Authority of Singapore had requested the assistance of its chief executive officer at the time, Tan Kheng Yeow, in an investigation concerning a possible offence under the Securities and Futures Act. Following an interview by MAS, Mr Tan surrendered his passport. He subsequently resigned as CEO and was succeeded by Tan Kheng Kuan.
