The director of Hai Hup Huat Marine, a company that provides stevedoring and launch boat services in and around the Port of Singapore, has been jailed for 42 weeks on corruption charges.

Tan Chee Keong, described as “overall-in-charge” of the company, was sentenced on Thursday after being found guilty of giving money to boarding officers and shipping agents under the guise of "commissions", "referral fees" or "loans".
