Doctor accused of rape: GP claimed he used saliva to carry out pelvic exam

Soon after he was arrested on suspicion of raping a patient during a late-night consultation in 2015, a general practitioner told police that he had put his saliva onto his fingers before inserting them into her for an examination.

Wee Teong Boo, 67, told the High Court on Friday (May25) that saliva has "anti-bacterial properties", although he admitted there was no excuse for using spit as lubricant during a digital examination.

On the 10th day of Wee's trial, the prosecution sought to highlight discrepancies between his statements and the version he gave in court.

He is charged with molesting the woman, then a 23-year-old student, at his Bedok clinic on Nov 25, 2015, and raping her on Dec 30, 2015.

In the statements - taken on Dec 31, 2015 and Jan 1, 2016 - Wee told investigators that he had used his saliva as lubricant. In court, he testified that he had not used any lubricant.

On Friday, Wee said his statement was the correct version.

This prompted Deputy Public Prosecutor Sharmila Sripathy-Shanaz to ask: "Isn't saliva full of bacteria?" Wee replied: "It has anti-bacterial properties."

On Friday, Wee said his statement was the correct version.

This prompted Deputy Public Prosecutor Sharmila Sripathy-Shanaz to ask: "Isn't saliva full of bacteria?" Wee replied: "It has anti-bacterial properties."

Pressed for authoritative sources, the doctor said it was "general knowledge" and told the DPP she could do an internet search.

However, the DPP contended that Wee's entire account of carrying out a digital examination to rule out pelvic inflammatory disease was a lie.

The DPP put it to Wee that he had raped the woman and was worried that his DNA would be found inside her.

That was why he concocted an "elaborate story" of conducting a digital examination with ungloved fingers and saliva as a lubricant - to provide an explanation for any of his DNA that may be found, the DPP said.

"You never did any digital examination," said the DPP, pointing out that there was no mention of any examination of the woman's genital area in Wee's case notes.

Wee disagreed.

The DPP also contended that Wee's defence that he had erectile dysfunction was an "afterthought". Wee disagreed.

Wee had consulted a urologist in private practice on Jan 5, 2016, three days after he was released from the police lock-up.

"You were trying to find a way to get yourself out of a rape case," said the DPP.

In court, Wee said he was shocked to learn on Dec 31, 2015, that he was being accused of rape because he was suffering from erectile dysfunction.

However, the DPP pointed to Wee's Jan 1, 2016 statement, in which he had replied "no" when asked point blank if he had erectile dysfunction.

"So were you lying then or are you lying now?" the DPP asked.

Wee replied that the condition did not bother him.

The DPP pressed on, asking if he had "selective memory". "It can happen to anybody," Wee replied.

Details of the woman's account of how Wee allegedly molested her were also revealed in open court when the DPP wrapped up her cross-examination. The woman had testified behind closed doors.

The DPP put it to Wee that the woman visited him for gastric discomfort, and while examining her abdomen, Wee told her that there was lump in her groin area. Wee then slid his hand into her underwear and touched her genitalia, while asking "OK?".

The woman replied "OK" because there was no pain, the DPP said, adding that Wee continued touching her and asking her if it was OK.

The DPP put it to Wee that he was emboldened by what he had done to her on Nov 25 and that was why he went on to rape her on Dec 30.

Wee disagreed. The trial continues on July 10.

Here in Singapore ...it would be undignified to serve with low salary ...

In a note on his Facebook page on Friday, MP Lim said he would like to clarify the comments he made to Lianhe Zaobao and reproduced in LianheWanBao. The comments had been quickly slammed by netizens.

He had been quoted by the Chinese paper last week as saying, "If the annual salary of the Minister of Information, Communication and Arts is only $500,000, it may pose some problems when he discuss policies with media CEOs who earn millions of dollars because they need not listen to the minister's ideas and proposals. Hence, a reasonable payout will help to maintain a bit of dignity."

In his Facebook note, the MP said, "I withdraw those remarks and apologise for making them. Dignity cannot be and must not be measured purely in monetary terms."

He said he agreed that the example he gave and his comment that there may be loss of face if the minister's salary is low "is inappropriate and incorrect".

Noting that ministerial pay is a sensitive issue and one that many are concerned about, he said he would like to clarify his comments by making three fundamental points. We have re-posted them below in full:

1. We need a balanced approach to the question of Ministerial pay.

2. Personally, I think we should not use pay and perks to attract capable people to come forward to serve. I agree with PM that there is a service to country element and an element of sacrifice expected for the Ministers by the public.

3. On the other hand, we need to take into consideration their responsibilities and job scope when we remunerate Ministers.

The multi-million dollar pay of ministers was a hot-button issue in Singapore's recent General Election, which saw the ruling People's Action Party win 81 out of 87 seats but at a significantly lower share of the total votes.

Following the results, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong announced the formation of a committee to review the "basis and level of political salaries". Any pay changes would take effect from 21 May this year.

In reaction to MP Lim's earlier remarks on ministerial pay, Francis Oen posted on Facebook: "Hi Wee Kiat.. Suggest you clarify your statement. Does it mean that only $ talks?! ... And if someone earns less, does it mean he cannot have dignity?"

Winnie Lim tweeted: "So according to Dr Lim Wee Kiak's theory, our ministers will ignore Obama because he earns less than all of them."

On his Facebook page, Dr Lim earlier said that his quote was taken out of context.

"Minister's pay issue is a sensitive one. There must be a balance. After all, capable individuals who are willing to come forward to serve should not so because of pay and perks," he replied to a user's question about his quote.

He added, "On the other hand, they do have families and dependents and need to consider for retirement, etc."

Think it's common to not want to stay with in laws ba  ???
Let's say if one pays for the flat and need to listen to someone else's house rule, might as well stay alone.
Stay nearby is ok

I'm sorry but these things should be clarified with hubby before you marry him .... not clarify after you're married.

It will be sheer folly and stupidity to attempt to change a man's mind and behaviour after marriage ...
