Karl Liew, son of Changi Airport Group's former chairman Liew Mun Leong, admitted to lying to a district judge in the case involving their former maid Parti Liyani, whom they accused of stealing.
The 45-year-old on Thursday pleaded guilty to one charge of giving false information to a public servant. He will be sentenced on April 14.
Ms Parti, now 49, was employed as a maid in his household. She was convicted of stealing more than $30,000 worth of items from the Liews and was sentenced in 2019 to two years and two months in jail.
On July 17, 2018, Liew falsely testified that the cream polo T-shirt and the red blouse belonged to him.
The charge was amended on March 20, 2019, as the judge found that the two garments did not belong to Liew.
Ms Parti was acquitted after the High Court overturned her conviction on appeal in 2020.
