Workers Party’s MPs deny all allegations made by AHTC’s independent panel

Workers’ Party (WP) chief Low Thia Khiang, party and town council chairman Sylvia Lim and town council vice-chairman Pritam Singh have issued a joint statement denying all allegations made by the Aljunied-Hougang Town Council (AHTC ) independent panel (IP).

The trio claim that they have “acted in good faith and in the best interests of the Town Council and our residents” and that they have “not benefitted a single cent” from their dealings with FMSS.

1. We confirm that we have received the Statement of Claim filed by the Aljunied-Hougang Town Council against us individually.

2. We have engaged M/s Tan Rajah and Cheah to defend the claim for the 1st to 5th Defendants.

3. In the suit against us, amongst other things, it is alleged that:

(a) We have acted in breach of our fiduciary duties and duties of care and skill owed to AHTC.

(b) We set up a faulty system which allowed the appointment of FMSS and made it possible for FMSS and/or their officers to benefit themselves.

(c) We entered into contracts with architects in breach of duties owed to AHTC.

4. Our reply to all these allegations is NO.

5. We are taking legal advice and will contest the lawsuit and lay out our case vigorously in court.

6. We wish to make the following points:

(a) Low Thia Khiang and Sylvia Lim have been asked to give an account of profits made from the appointment of FMSS or pay damages not less than $1.25 million. We have not benefitted a single cent.

(b) Sylvia Lim and Pritam Singh have been asked to pay damages of $2.8 million for the wrongful appointment of architects.

(c) The WP MPs have acted in good faith and in the best interests of the Town Council and our residents.

(d) In the course of these proceedings, we will be furnishing more information so that all concerned will be clearer on the issues and why we made the decisions and acted as we did.

Low Thia Khiang
Sylvia Lim
Pritam Singh

The 3 Members of Parliament for Aljunied GRC were served with a statement of claim by the appointed IP on Tuesday (25 July), claiming among other things, a total of S$4,790,095.49 comprising S$622,593.78 in liquidated claims and S$4,167,501.71 in un-liquidated claims.

The IP also claims that payment amounting to $33,717,535 made to the former managing agent FM Solutions and Services (FMSS) and service provider FM Solutions and Integrated Services (FMSI) were invalid as the town councillors had acted in breach of their fiduciary duties.

Other defendants that have been named in the statement of claim include former WP Youth Wing executive committee member, Chua Zhi Hon; deputy organising secretary of the WP and WP candidate in Nee Soon GRC in the 2015 General Election, Kenneth Foo; owner of AHTC’s former managing agent firm FMSS, How Weng Fan; and FMSS.

The IP was appointed in February 2017 after audit firm KPMG released a report last year that AHTC had put millions of dollars from public funds at risk of improper use due to governance lapses from 2011-2015. KPMG had flagged payments to the town council’s then-managing agent FMSS as ‘improper’ since the owners of FMSS held key management and financial control positions in the town council at the same time.

The KPMG report asserted that this meant that FMSS effectively approved and made payments to itself using public funds.

The IP is chaired by Senior Counsel Philip Jeyaretnam, members include Senior Counsel N. Sreenivasan and KPMG managing partner Ong Pang Thye.  Interestingly, Philip Jeyaretnam is the younger son of late opposition politician J.B. Jeyaratnam who led the Workers’ Party from 1971 to 2001.

Meanwhile, HDB said it has been given the statement of claim filed by the panel. HDB said the claim document outlines “serious allegations of misconduct” including Low and Lim allegedly misleading AHTC and failing to justify a waiver of tender and the appointment of FMSS.

HDB added that it is seeking legal advise from the Attorney General’s Chambers on the matter.

    I am very glad that WP has taken legal action to defend themselves in the court of law.
    Not like a cry baby who only know how to drama but dont have the guts to defend his allegations in the court of law.

    “AHTC takes legal action against Workers’ Party town councillors over past payments” Macham like ownself sue ownself! when in actual fact the fiacking legal action is initiated by the HDB! DAFTS SinKaporean would come to the wrong conclusion about WP believing that they have committed very serious crimes Ike CBT of huge amount of Residents funds! Btw how come No Sound no shadow on that fiacking Manager of AMK GRC who committed more serious crime by CBT of more $millions of residents’ Funds. Double standard by HDB!

    WP wouldn’t have faced finance accounting problem in their TC had the blady PAPigs didn’t took away Completely the finance computer-billing system when they lost the GRC to WP in 2011 GE! WP had to start from zero base. They were also pressurized by HDB to submit their annual financial report on time. If WP’s councillors have committed CBT, why no Investigation by CPIB or CAD?

    We True Blue Singaporean want to know are HDB in the process of ALSO investigating the financial account of AMK GRC Town Council. Why and What is taking the case so fiacking LOONG? Or have they swept the matter under the carpet?

    The PAP must apply this standard to all town council, and to every department of the government.

    Sued because of selecting contractors who charged higher fees?
    Now, which of the ruling party’s town councils and agencies do not or has never select contractors who charged higher fees? Remember A.I.M. and its’ software?
    And kindly remember that many of the ruling party’s town councils charged residents higher fees despite the claim and suit over WP selecting contractor which charged higher fees (having contractors which charged lower fees but end up charging residents higher fees?
    Which P.A.P. contractors would serve an opposition ward?
    Why is it that when a P.A.P. town council lose money speculating in Lehman bonds, no legal action taken? Is it double standards because WP is not one of their cronies? What kind if government is this?
    What is $4.8.millions (peanuts) as compared to P.A. annual budget of $1 billion, much of which goes to serve the political interests of P.A.P?

    I would have hoped that WP was not entangled in such manner.
    such encumbrances should be totally avoided in the first instance with care.

    if WP can win this lawsuit,it can then hold its head high in the sky and be assured of even greater victories in future GEs.

    all said,WP should ‘AIM’ to be cleaner than the ‘WHITER THAN WHITE’ themselves.

    all we know is that there are not a few BUSINESSES RUN BY PAP GRASSLOOTERS AWARDED BIG PUBLIC PROJECTS WITH SHODDY PERFORMANCES like THE MARINA BARRAGE issue that cause once-in-50 years ‘PONDING’ that submerged ORCHARD ROAD SHOPPING MALLS?

    @ Ah Fah,

    MY BIGGEST WORRY is why the law of fiduciary responsibilities DOES NOT APPLY to management and handling of our CPF money. We should be paid the full amount of the return – minus a small management fee of perhaps 0.1% to maximum negotiated rate of 1% fees on total assets under management – and the balance must be paid to rightful owners (CPF members).

    The payout should NOT be a ghostly bureaucratic decision of 2.5% flat. Any CPF money retained after 55 years of age is THEFT OF PRIVATE PROPERTY following both statutory and common law applications.

    How come the law DOES NOT APPLY to missing (maybe in hundreds of) BILLIONS in CPF savings of peasants?

  • PAP Is Digging Its Own Graves?:

    Justice must be seen to be fair by all for all. Since PAP has started the ball rolling, future governments that would take over to rule the country must ensure that PAP meet its own precedence set in July 2017.

    An independent panel must be set up to investigate on each and every one of the following:

    1. Residents’ Committee,
    2. Citizens’ Consultative Committee,
    3. Community Center/Club Management Committee,
    4. Branch and Dept of the People’s Association,
    5. Other Town Councils and Management Committees,
    6. Community Development Councils,
    7. Mayor’s Office and Financial Management Branch,
    8. HDB’s Branches,
    9. HDB’s Subsidiaries,
    10, HDB’s Auxiliary Organizations such as the EMS,
    11. PAP’s Community Foundation Branches,
    12. PAP’s Childcare Centers,
    13. NTUC Childcare Centers,
    14. NTUC Branches,
    15. NTUC Business Organisations,
    16. All Statutory Boards,
    17. All Ministries and their sub-organizations,
    18. All Universities and Tertiary Institutions,
    19. All Hospitals and Polyclinics,

    AND MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL:


    20. THE Prime Minister’s Office,
    21. Temasek Holdings,
    22. Government Investment Corporation of Singapore,
    23. Government-Linked Companies,
    24. CPF Board,
    25. Parliament,
    26. Monetary Authority of Singapore,
    27. The Treasury,
    28. Inland Revenue,
    29. All contracts awarded to PAP supporters,
    30. Last but not least, The Elections Department.

  • PAP even wrong is right:

    Singaporeans remembrr PAP $2 company AI deal with PAPTCs on its supposedly obsolete software. It was the only company which tendered. Strangely the obsolete software can be used on rental from AIM with at a rental rate which AIM would recover the amt it paid PAPTCs within a relately short time. Would PAPTCs tell all constituents in PAP watds whether they arevstill renting the “obsolete software ” from AIM? If not when did they stopped and who they have engaged to develop the new software? AIM was at that juncture was fully managed by PAP member and retired MP? The question of awardinhg to one and not recalling for tender and a conflict od interest with direct benefits to PAP were raided by Singaporeans? AGC did nothing and everything is ok. Is this what Indranee meanted by with PAP good man no conflict of interests even if there is diect profit as in PAPAIM and PAPTCs. In other words for WP case, Low, Sylvia and Pritam are mot good men to Indtanee? Who certify they are not good Men? Is the certification before or after the PAP relentless hantams?
    Amos was relentlessly persecuted even against the UN Chater PAP govt cosigned but PAP member commiting more seriously racial sediction was spared until the netizens repeatedly cried foul and only a year later was called up and punished nanoly compared with what Amos got. Amos was punched outside the Court same thing happened with a ounishment even less than the 76 yo who wrote on the bus shelter in support of his CPF hero?
    It seemed PAP everything is ok even appting personal lawyrer of PM and PAP members to public institution. Does it mean PAP os simply LAWs of the land and Constitution and the written Singapore Laws are just bullshits to PAPband only meant for all non PAP members? 7Would Indranee elaborate please?
    Would the independent Committee on WP case please release the dntire account to the public and the amt spent compared with PAPTCs? Further would the Committee in comparison revealed in comparison all the successful tenderers to PAPTCs and their yes or no conflict of interests to PAP and PAPTCs management teamd as a comparison of PAP a.nd WP mgemt of TC to give all Singaporeans that independence is real independence and conflict of interest vs hood or bad men with perhaps acriteria of hood and bad and who set and certify good and bad men in public service particularly in public independent institutions and service?
    On ghis count sould PAP let Singaporeans know members appted to govt committees incl Boards of Directors and Ministerial Committeds invl COI to help Singaporeans understand the impact of good men on Conflict of Interest.
    Would AGC look into PAPAIM PAPTCs deal & allegations of LHY and LWL wrt to personal character of LHL? Let Sporeans know once and for all what the hell is…

    Alternative websites are still immature to present in depth analysis to educate the public. All those shoutings and curses would only turn the public off.

    ……有关部门说阿裕尼后港市镇理事会的帐目不清不楚,限定时辰要工人党自己委派一个独立调查团調查清楚,以正视听。现在,这由工人党自己委派的独立調查团竟然代表阿裕尼后港市镇理事会,起诉工人党,追讨三千多万元不当花费掉的公款。

    这对工人党来说,真的是亲者痛,仇者快。

    据报道,起诉理由之一是工人党密书长刘程强大爷的一通电邮。

    这电邮啊,可厉害了。他大意是说,他们(工人党)做了个决定,明知这有可能会造成利益冲突,但他们不管三七二十一,照干不误。

    慕洋犬写到这里,冷汗直冒!

    为什么?

    好彩工人党现在掌管的只是一个聚选区的市镇理事会,不是整个国家。

    试想想,如果是整个国家,用的是这样的态度,明知会喪权辱国,还硬硬来,不管三七二十一,就
    是干了。

    啊啦骂,不敢再想像下去!

    Excellent Governance:
    The PAP has set an excellent standard of governance.
    The idea is there.
    Now comes the implementation.
    The PAP must apply this standard to all town council, and to every department of the government.
    PAP must now set up independent panels everywhere to investigate and recover OUR money that is not properly spent.

    刚看了工人党三巨头接受记者訪问的视蘋。

    相信工人党现在从上到下,从前到后,必定是乱七八糟。人人咀里什么鸟语都有,但绝对不会有人在那边大大声的喊“huat ah”。

    视频一览而过,只留下这些印象:

    秘书长刘大爷心中有事,“问心无亏,出发点是好的”好像变成了他的口头禅,下面就没有了。他也说“如果我倒了,会有很多人来接替我”。去意好像已决。

    林瑞阿莲推功无敌,一推四五六七八九,什么都要到法院才说,好像只有法官才有资格听她的。不过说多了也透露她最终想法,那就是官司会输,已準备酬款还债,不然就是破产走路。

    碧丹星,他话不多,冷眼旁听。只简单的表述他从政不是要自肥。刘大爷和阿莲大姑姑可要当心咯,此人高头大马的站在你们身边,比刘大爷足足高了一个头,他可以是你们的“別担心”,也可以是你们的必“必担心”,更可以是你们的“劈蛋猩”,把你们都当成是蛋,是蛋皆可劈,不劈不成蛋。

    How should I sum up the whole Singapore politics?

    Ah, I got it !

    IF SINGAPOREANS WANTED DEMOCRACY , NO ONE COULD DENY THEM.

    SG DEMOCRACY IS WEAK BECAUSE THE PEOPLE HAVE NEVER ASKED FOR IT BADLY ENOUGH.

    THE ISSUE AND ROOT CAUSE IS THE PEOPLE.

    The people have been NEGLIGENT IN THEIR ROLE AND RESPONSIBILITIES.
    Either that or they simply DO NOT WANT DEMOCRACY bad enough.

    When aim was sold for a song why was not directors ask to pay what the loss was since the software was worth more; wonder what this country coming to;

    The People if disagree with the way the WP have been attacked could easily have protested or signed a petition or millions could have posted on social media and flood their disapproval on the internet Forcing the PAP to change.

    But they NEVER EVER DID THAT.

    THEY COULD IF THEY WANT TO.

    On the record the G and ministers had not lost a case in all their law suits against oppo party members so the AH TC case is no exception.It is expected to be a long legal tussle LTK, SL and Pt are in for a hard time and mostly probably they will end up in the same fate as JBJ, bankrupted , lost their seats in parliament and debar from contesting in future GEs. Exactly as LTK said, ” sue until their pants drop” this is a sad case for opposition parties?! Many compare the WP case with the 880K rubbish bin, the serious lapses reported yearly by the AGO where many millionsof public money were lost, the Lee siblings’ allegations of abuse of power, Leh man brothers investment losses by PAP TCs , Lapses in the PA audits Hepatitis deaths , YOG budget over run by hundreds of millions. …….. All are honest mistakes no criminal intent, ignorance on the part of officers in charge , preventive procedures in place blah blah blah case close move!
    Do LTK and his gang seriously harbour any hope of getting out of this case unscathed?

    Doctor NO:
    WP is finished! Forgone conclusion. Sue until pants and panties and underwears all drop.

    Anyone who doubt this is a Sunken.

    Even the response from Low suggests they know its a good possibility that they will lose their seats.

    On the bright side, this is CALLED CHANGE.

    PAP and WP share a commonality – unchangeable for 50 years.

    WP has never achieved up to expectations even though Boh Fish, Prawn also can.

    Nevertheless, we have always been lamenting that within WP, no one can bring down or replace or take over Low due to his standing and status and stature.

    But we also know , he has reached his max. Unable to better.

    We know WP did not succeed in the last GE because Low is partly to be blamed. This is despite the all-time mountain of issues. Yet, PAP got record high.

    So, lets not be biased towards WP and think with an honest mind. Low needs to be replaced.

    This is a Great Opportunity for Low to be replaced by the future leader of WP.

    CSM and Low are perceived to have friction.

    So, will this lead to 2 faction split within WP? Will the Papaya be clapping the split?

    Or will WP members be like a typical Sunken and say “BohBian lah, hehehehe, what to do ? lets move on “?

    Opposition ward has no lift problems plaguing PAP constituencies.People have been seriously injured,even killed by faulty lifts in PAP wards,despite their’proper’use of Town Council funds.There was rat infestation in PAP wards too.In these two particular cases,can the constituents sue the PAP town councils for not doing their jobs at maintenance?Did the opposition wards have these problems?What is more important is what happens to the lives of the constituents on the ground in their everyday living.Have they been charged more than those in PAP wards to build,maintain and improve the constituencies’amenities,for example?
    To extrapolate,can the people sue the government for the frequent MRT problems,since we pay taxes?
