Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat said that Singapore could review a decision not to prosecute key figures at Keppel Offshore & Marine Ltd. over a major bribery case involving payments to Brazil’s state-run energy company if there’s new evidence that warrants doing so.

The city-state on Monday defended a decision not to press charges against six former senior managers of Keppel O&M for their alleged involvement in a bribery scandal that cost the company $422 million in total fines. Indranee Rajah, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office, told the city-state’s parliament on Monday there was not enough sufficient evidence to establish any criminal charge beyond a reasonable doubt against a specific individual.
