SINGAPORE (Reuters) - A Singaporean company official has been charged in court for allegedly supplying luxury goods to North Korea in violation of U.N. sanctions, Singapore's Straits Times newspaper reported on Friday.

Ng Kheng Wah was charged on Thursday for shipping goods such as musical instruments, wine and perfume to North Korea in violation of Singapore's United Nations Act, the Straits Times said.

Singapore's Attorney General's office could not immediately confirm the charges.
