Ang, Sunny (1939– 1967) One of Singapore’s most famous criminals, convicted on 18 May 1965 for the murder of bar waitress Jenny Cheok Cheng Kid, whose body was never found. The prosecution alleged that on 27 August 1963, Sunny Ang, a Singapore Grand Prix driver, had hired a sampan (small boat) to bring him and Cheok to Sisters Islands south of Singapore, ostensibly to collect corals; but the real motive was murder— she was heavily insured. Ang was bankrupt whereas Cheok had been insured for a total of $450,000 with several insurance companies. Some of Cheok’s policies were renewed on the morning of her death, although Ang’s were not. The beneficiaries were Ang’s mother and Cheok’s estate. The case was the first murder trial in local legal history in which a person was convicted solely on circumstantial evidence.

The new centre, known as the Construction Industry Training Institute (CITI), was opened on 18 May 1994. CITI was re-structured and renamed as BCA Academy of the Built Environment in 2007 to gear itself for an expanded scope of professional education.
