    SINGAPORE: Singapore on Thursday passed prison sentences on two senior civil servants embroiled in corruption scandals that have dented the government’s reputation as one of the least corrupt worldwide. Lim Cheng Hoe, 61, the former head of protocol at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, was sentenced to 15 months in jail for inflating expenses for thousands of dollars’ worth of pineapple tarts and wine bought as gifts for dignitaries. In a separate case, Edwin Yeo Seow Hiong, 40, an assistant director at the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau, was sentenced to 10 years in jail for misappropriating US$1.4-million worth of government funds.
