Lawsuit against Worker’s Party MP set to be heard in October

After a closed-door hearing in the High Court on Monday (13 Aug), civil lawsuits brought against WP MPs Low Thia Khiang, Sylvia Lim, and Pritam Singh will be heard in High Court from 1 Oct to 2 Nov.

Last July, a lawsuit was filed by a three-member independent panel on behalf of Aljunied-Hougang Town Council (AHTC). It accused the MPs of setting up a system which eventually led to the appointment of FM Solutions and Services (FMSS) as the town council’s managing agent.

The lawsuit was initiated by the Aljunied-Hougang Town Council for alleged improper payments between 2011 and 2015.

Later in September, the Pasir Ris-Punggol Town Council (PRPTC) launched a similar lawsuit over claims and reliefs related to Punggol East constituency. The constituency went back to PRPTC after the WP lost narrowly in GE2015.

The defendants were asked to account for the S$33.7 million paid to FMSS and its service provider, FM Solutions & Integrated Services, and to make up for any improper payments.

Apart from the 3 MPs, the lawsuit has also added 5 other defendants. They are:

- AHTC councillors Chua Zhi Hon, Kenneth Foo Seck Guan, and How Weng Fan
- FMSS and its owner Danny Loh, who has passed away while on holiday in 2016.

  • clown pap fixing WP:

    everyone with a brain knows it is fixing.

    we in Aljunied never voted WP to be town councilors. rather, we voted WP to be the check and balance against clown pap ownself check ownself incest.

    whatever smear or mud slinging clown pap does to WP, we shall still vote WP in next GE2019. because we state, without wavering, such fixing by clown pap is wrong.

    WHO OWNS THE ENTITY WHICH BOUGHT the AHTC software for $2 only after the 2011 GE trapping WP with messy accounting gaps to start from scratch? What was the costs of developing those software in good working conditions? What is the name of that buyer entity?

    I can’t remember.

  • Let's have the lawsuit ...:

    And while we are at this, can we also have an independent panel to initiate a civil lawsu against Temasek holdings of setting up a system that appoints HC as the CEO, leading to conflict of interests with LHL as PM, possible losses of several billions dollars and end up having increases in water prices, electricity prices, transportation prices, GST, property taxes, carpark charges, airport taxes, etc, that affect every Singaporean in the entire country?

    I hope it is not too much to ask for the court to be open, transparent and fair on these two cases.

  • opposition dude:

    So now we move on to the next chapter of suing people. I wonder just how long this soap opera will play out.

    This also means the next GE is definitely in 2019, this tactic has been used by PAP before. Make some noise over some opposition figure(s) and drag the matter out all the way into the next GE’s campaign period. It definitely won’t end after November 2 because the courts will have to wayang gather for the verdict and WP will also appeal the case. So there is loads of time to play this out slowly.

    The problem for PAP is, does the electorate still have a negative opinion of WP after the town council issue? The odds are that a good majority cam see through PAP’s wayang since PAP themselves have screwed up numerous times over train disruptions, failing lifts and places flooding after heavy rain.

    So this PR exercise just reinforces PAP’s incompetence and needing to use the media to try their darndest to make WP look bad.

    Try harder PAP, people don’t have that much faith in you guys as they once did.

  • Can we have another lawsuit?:

    Can the independent panel also levy a lawsuit against MPs who have less than 80% Parliament sessions attendance?

    After all, these MPs were elected by the people to represent their interests in the Parliament (not to run town councils) and they are being highly paid to do their job. If an MP got the job, receive the pay and yet disappear … only to come back after 5 years during election time, it amounts to cheating the general public big time. This is a far worse cheat than collecting money to clear rubbish in a town … at least this is still doing a daily job!

    Any highly paid executive working in any corporation will probably be fired long time ago if he does not bother to turn up for work, never mind about dragging down for 5 years to try renew yet another contract.

    What about the AG audit of all the PA accounts findings with numerous discrepencies,why they could claim that there is no corruption? 1 country but 2 sets of laws, rule by law. WP should highlight the PA AG audit findings with that of AHTC . What about Temusick, Keppel bribery issues, Erected President,why only Opposition?

  • Sour ground fermenting:

    Pap is back to its panic turn conning hopeful that Sinkies r daft till death comes upon them. The legacy the CB nepotic SH left behind is gradually exposure inaked by the imbercile generation left behind. Perhaps it is the suppressed futy of cannot defend the loved one against the brutality of parents that evokes a series of suicidal opation mati including threatening the daft Sinkies, an evil legacy left by the evil, greedy, bestial rogue sterile enough to lose the faculty of sensibility n rationality that jed him to say the unforgiveable which .ursher in the suicidal ploy mounted by the genes he left behind. The vengence gathers sufficient strength to rubbish the egoistic loud mouth n arrogant SH to be the crook oof all political crooks in modern history. The vengence is so intense that it wipes off completely the little pea brains of the present grneration nicked as nfi Biws.
    The better awareness of the daft sinkies of how they were hookwinked to think enslaving policies to the advantages of the greedyn bestial shit generation put them in great panic n beginning rolling out poisoned carrots hoping to gain another term to rape these kpkb. But these nfi SBs cannot controlled their arrogance but essentially r too self glorified n arrogant that led them to urge the daft Sinkies not to go to university and plps parroting with glorious cases how those who plays to dropout or to become gangsters becoming successful failing to be conscious how they have insulted these individuals on their struggle, resolution n pain to reach where they r today by implicating that u can be successful even u plays n being a gangster n u will become successful overnite. Do ask those cited whether on hindsight would rather study hard n try to get univ degree.

    So they are being sued for ” wantonly wasting the constituents’money”that had been paid to the council..
    If a lift in a PAP ward malfunctions,can the residents using it sue the town council for improper maintenance?Is this not also wasting the constituents’money paid to the council,since the lift is not being maintained?
    One old man in a wheelchair died,one elderly woman seriously injured,in two of such cases of malfunctioning lifts in PAP wards.Such scary incidents did not occur in opposition constituencies,did they?
    Residents of PAP wards can consider suing their town councils for lift breakdowns,dirty premises,blackouts,etc,if they occur,can they not?It is tantamount to improper management of the funds.

  • Anti national Agenda:

    Only a govt with self interest in mind would not value the contribution of political opposition. A govt lies to its teeth or it is really have nfi of governance if it told the citizenry it can self checks n balances. Such a govt is irresponsible, have no accountability n anti national. What Singapore is s today with foreigners to citizenry population reaching over 1 is mocking the security of the nation n destroying the culture painfully nurtured by responsible patroits. The fame of a harmonious multiracial society, clean environment n safe singapore has been totally destroyed by the greed n aggressive culture advocated by the political leader openly recently.
    Singapore has enough of political activities that r operating in the dark. It doesn’t need much brain to understand that if someone is up to no good, he needs to do it in the dark. The nepotic regime is so brainwashed that greeds, hunger and brutish aggression are the human virtues which they harbouredvas recently been publicly admitted. Self gratification, self glorification implicates a political platform of working for self interest n benefits, definitely traitors in all senses. No loyal citizens esp the political leaders would belittle its citizenry n openly told the world that foreigners r welcomed to boot the citizens n subsequently implying that these foreigners r hungry, greedy n aggressive scumbags that the citizens need to be more greedy n more aggressive to steal their jobs. With such mentality, all their sworn oath on their holy books are nothing but scorn n insults to the religious belief of citizenry which trist that any oath sworn upon the holy books are trustworthy.
    Talking abt any political activities with foreign interference n support r criminal n legally persecuted. Who beg the US presence in Singapore n its neighbouring area? Which political party has the most foreigners members n in the cabinet so much so that r much talked abt by foreign media? Who imported irresponsibly foreigners to Singapore to the level that security becomes a damn joke? Who spend billions to educate foreign children from primary to post graduate levels so much so that citizenry have to pay increasinly more for their education n a lack of admission places to tertiary institution becomes so acute that the political leaders n their polanpas persistently out to brainwash the young kids that degrees r not essential while their own children r given scholarship at the expence of Singporeans to prestigious universities n allow to remain working in thiose country n not pull back like criminals to fulfil the bonds? No responsibe educationalists would remain compliance to such evil agenda but Singapore has showing the extent of polanpa effects. Enough is enough. Time to see what’r going on in the dark?
