SINGAPORE: Former Transport Minister S Iswaran was on Thursday (Jan 18) charged with 27 offences, including corruption, obtaining a valuable thing as a public servant and obstructing justice.

He pleaded not guilty to the charges, almost all of which are linked to tycoon Ong Beng Seng.

The 61-year-old has resigned from parliament and as a member of the People’s Action Party.

In a statement after the hearing, he insisted he was innocent and said he would focus on clearing his name.
