A senior Foreign Affairs official is being investigated by the police over allegations of filing improper claims for expenses incurred during visits overseas.

Chief of protocol at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA), Mr Lim Cheng Hoe was suspended from his duties on Tuesday after the ministry referred the case to the Commercial Affairs Department.

The Straits Times understands he has not been arrested. Mr Michael Tan Keng Siong is now acting chief of protocol at the ministry.

The MFA said in a statement on Thursday that it had received information that Mr Lim, who has served in the ministry for 38 years, had made improper claims for reimbursements, for expenses incurred by him, during some of his overseas visits.

The series of scandals though ugly and disgraceful, I am actually glad that that there are shake ups and scrutinies poking the tops as well.

I am all for better accountability, which is a form of progress as a society in its own right.

Perhaps the earlier SLA corruption case forced all agencies to more thoroughly audit themselves?

Not surprising that some Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) officials may actually hold secondary appointments with our our external espionage agencies such as the Security and Intelligence Division (SID) conducting covert operations outside of Singapore as mentioned by Dr. Tim Huxley.

If their identity is blown, there must be some sort of protocol for cover-up in place?

A lot cleaner than most.
Someone in MY govt dept allegedly bought a stack of rubber bands for RM1000. No one was ever hauled up for questioning.
