Businessman jailed 14 weeks for molesting property exec he tried to bribe
A businessman was jailed 14 weeks on Friday (July 3) for molesting and attempting to bribe a property management executive.
Nguyen The Tuan, 41, a Singapore permanent resident from Vietnam, had pleaded guilty to corruptly offering $1,000 to her and another charge of molesting her.
Court papers said Nguyen and his wife had breached the terms of their two rented service apartments in 2014 and had to hand over the units back to the local property developer.
The female property management executive assessed the damages in one of the apartments to be worth $5,000.
Nguyen offered her $1,000 as he wanted her to reduce the damages to $1,000.
She rejected his offer.
The next day, he molested her by touching her right arm, leaning in to kiss her and sniffing her neck.
