The birds do it, bees do it. The procreation instinct comes naturally. Of course, if a baby is on the way, then it's time to make the hard decision: pro-choice or pro-life, to save the old marriage or start a new one. Whatever happens, it's not criminal, definitely not something corrupt.
The Civil Service will have to examine it's own moral code of conduct, and decide if it has the disciplinary framework to mete out punishment. On question of moral authority, they have to make sure people who live in glass houses should not throw stones. We have too many recent instances of media whores who are quick to point one finger at others without realising more digits are pointing backwards at their own hypocritical self. Worse, they forget they should be politically neutral, and taint the public institutions they serve in with personal agendas.
Once upon a time, Hewlett Packard Singapore had a personnel manager who had chalked up more than 15 years of dedicated service. Then his name was mentioned in a divorce court case. The erring woman was sued by her husband, but the poor guy was sacked by the American company for tarnishing the firm's high moral standards. That had to be a gold standard of sorts. Unfortunately the price of gold has fallen much, and so has the quality of our high flying civil servants. Even the hospital staff, instead of taking a blood test, send you home with a Panadol despite the obvious signs of dengue infection, namely fever, headache, and joint pain, vomiting and body rash. Their excuse: most dengue patients recover.
