SMRT Chief Operating Officer Alvin Kek was allegedly with a China woman when he was caught for drink-driving at Woodlands Checkpoint at 5am on Saturday (21 Apr).
State media agency Shin Min News Daily reported that Kek was with a female passenger in her 30s, who is a China native working in Singapore.
Both of them allegedly didn’t have their passports with them, because Kek had not intention of driving to Malaysia but somehow found himself at the checkpoint.
Kek, a 14-year army veteran and a colonel before he jumped ship to SMRT, is believed to be married with kids.
Kek is believed to have been driving home when he ended up at Woodlands Checkpoint.
Prior to the arrest, Kek’s latest public “appearance” was at a SMRT safety event, where he spoke about accountability and ensuring safety through teamwork.
