The definition of improper

Only $15,710 to be recovered, not $33.7 million, according to KPMG’s definition of “improper payment” (Closing Submissions pages 28 to 34)

- This is on whether the appointments of FMSS and FMSI and the payments totalling $33.7 million to FMSS and FMSI were improper.

- KPMG Report concludes that “detectable” improper payments by AHTC to FMSS and FMSI amounts only to $1,518,286.

- On cross-examination at the trial, KPMG auditor Mr Hawkes said that even when KPMG identifies a payment as improper, they are not necessarily recommending that they ought to be recovered. This is because for some payments identified as improper, it is not possible to determine what part of them could be labelled improper and ought to be recovered (therefore “not determinable” in KPMG’s table attached).

- Thus, Mr Hawkes clarified that of the $1,518,286 identified as improper, KPMG concluded that only $624,621 ought to be recoverable.

- Further, the bulk of the sum of $624,621 comprises the project management fees of $608,911 under the contract with FMSS, which the Defence argues ought to be excluded because it is not improper. The remaining sum that ought to be recovered is merely $15,710.

- Nowhere in the KPMG Report or the PwC Report does it state that all of AHTC’s payments to FMSS/FMSI totalling $33.7 million is improper and therefore ought to be recovered.

    This post should be publicized.

    The bad impression created by those out to run down WP needs to be corrected.

    Both in the Social Media and in the current trials.

  • Dishonourable Son Exposed:

    It seems that someone, in his eagerness and viciousness to fix the Workers’ Party, has gone over-board to the extreme without examining in detail nor sort clarification with the auditing firms thoroughly, before wasting the court’s time and making a fool of himself.

    citizens knew all along clown pap is trying to FIX WP in Aljunied.

    notice how quickly citizens supported the fund seeking of Ms Sylvia Lim, et al.? clown pap balls shaking when he saw the support. moreover, FIXING of WP does not mean can be successful since the FIXING is a lie to begin with.

    there is a limit to how much clown pap can lie in 70% sheep land. up to a point the tide must turn, for the better of OPPOSITION alliance.

  • unfair headline fr mouthpiece:

    mouthpiece’s headline in the first report read…. The WP MPs PLOTTED to….

    some of the readers here might not be fans of the WP but just spare a thot….if it was another oppo party that was involved in the saga, the bias and damaging headline will still be the same or even worse.

    laugh and armchio as much as you like seeing WP is now in trouble….if for example it was SDP, PSP no mercy will also be given by mouthpiece..

    the damand for 33 million is outrageous….hidden agenda? kana bankrupt and disqualified to be MPs and cannot run for the coming GE?

    The “ART” of “twisting and playing” on One’s Mind !

    Not letting you know that Flierfly which was involved in the “BIG HOO Ha” on the landing system and the use of airspace ,…was and actually “had links to Rosemati and Narji ,would certainly go a long way in “preventing” people from having “further wild imaginations which may lead to thoughts of some “hanky panky business” happening behind the scene.

    The ” UNNECESSARY or cunning ways of highlighting” of the sum $33 million being improper is also a way of “twisting and playing” on one’s minds to “poison” the image of the Opposition !

    If you have “associates” that “does work or behaves like that”…ie, using “selective info or twisting info and playing” your mind,…better watch out !!!!……this is a “Snake”,…a very “Cunning Snake” indeed !

    My advise…stay away and avoid them !!!

    15,710 over 33,700,000 is 0.0466% – not at all material as most accounting rules anywhere in the world other than clown pap is at 5%.

    clown pap FIXING of WP utter fail, as it should be because the FIXING is on a fake news premise of 33,700,000 when it is an arguable 15,710 – arguable because in the scheme of things, a little over payment here and there is situational and cannot be faulted.

    why clown pap NOT fixing AIM instead? or the brompton bikes? cannot. otherwise slapping own face. ha ha ha. WTF this lky clown.

  • PAP billionaies jokers:

    PAP Biws ve nothing better to do yet the number of ministers is increasing with PMO having a majong team. As many Singaporeans r seeing these bloody overpaid super corky though thry have traded their to po other just to chalk up enough points to getvwhat they xant at public expence. LKY said any citizens ke sworn to serve not with him o his policy r his enemies. Citizens of Singaporeans should treat all the super arrogant egoistic self gratifying n self glorifying badtard who defy Jesus, Mohammed n Buddha for not abiding his vow on their Holy Books n worse betraying them n the nation as nztional enemies n traitors n should spare nothing to eradicting them from the island once a beautiful homeland but now raped by these bastards.

    They habe bred a harem of ballessvplps to shield them from accountability of their violation of the constitution n urging citizens to be bloody greedy bestial thieves to get back what shold theirs in their own country. Yes because they betrayed the mandate n using the mandate to allow them to do in the dark without accountbility with LHY/LWL alledged compliance of the plps of the dead lau li, the ingilial imberclie n his stangulating . They will not be able to get these balless eunuchs to shield them n their lps to shield them from accontability., singaporeans should remove the mandate n use it to examine what they they done that they have to hide n give them what they deserve incl coughinh out the Swids numbers

    .Get them out of Parliament, sealed them in till citizens concertedly exposd what have they have done in the dark. n feed them what they deserved.

  • Political Persecution:

    This case is clearly, undeniably, triple-confirmed politically motivated. It is nothing but a slimmy, cunning, atrocious political manoeuvre designed to put the Workers’ Party out of business. It is political persecution at Work. The Judiciary is being made use of and whether it works again, is yet to be seen.

    Evidence to substantiate? Use your brain, if you have a functioning one.

    Key questions to ask:

    1. Who benefit mosts in any/all aspects if Workers’ Party is found guilty and punished till pants drop?

    Answer: PAP.

    2. Who brought the charges to the Judiciary?

    Answer: Pasir Ris/Punggol GRC.

    3. Who is the Boss in-charge of Pasir Ris/Punggol GRC?

    Answer: None other than DPM Teo Chee Hean.

    4. Who is Teo Chee Hean?
    (Remember the Secret Ministerial Committee?)


    Put two and two together, and you get the ANSWER.
