SINGAPORE - Singapore Technologies Engineering Ltd’s electronics arm said on Thursday it was not involved in an ongoing probe by the country’s anti-corruption watchdog, contrary to a media report.
“None of ST Electronics’ executives has been called up by the CPIB (Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau) to assist with the investigation,” Singapore Technologies Electronics Ltd said in a press statement.

The CPIB, Singapore’s anti-corruption watchdog, is currently investigating the former heads of the country’s civil defence force (SCDF) and anti-narcotics unit  for “serious personal misconduct”.
The two men have been arrested and are out on bail.
According to a report in The New Paper on Thursday, the focus in the SCDF case seems to be on contracts awarded to ST Engineering's electronics arm ST Electronics.
ST Electronics has worked with various government agencies over the years.
In October 2009, the SCDF awarded a contract worth $34 million to ST Electronics to transform the emergency call-taking and despatch system in its operations centre into a new generation command and control system, reported The New Paper.
Three months later, American company TriTech Software Systems announced it has been awarded a contract by ST Electronics to provide its VisiCAD computer-aided dispatch and VisiNet Mobile in-car mobile data solutions for integration into ST Electronics’ solution for the SCDF project.
