A little-known government watchdog says its probe into a possible bribery scheme has been halted

Singapura’s government has suspended the probe into the alleged bribery of government officials and is looking into the extent of a possible scheme to bribe the government, the government watchdog said Friday.

The Department of Justice and the Department of Commerce, which is investigating the case, have been asked to submit their findings by May 31, the Office of the Inspector General said in a statement.

The Office of Inspector General’s investigation is an independent, quasi-judicial body that reviews the government’s policies, processes and compliance with its obligations under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, or FCPA.

The watchdog said it will not pursue the matter further.
