Raeesah Khan’s alleged lying in Parliament is turning out to be more of a witch-hunt

Click to enlarge

The COP’s inquiry into Raeesah Khan’s alleged lying in parliament is turning out to be more of a witch-hunt, and its endless twists and turns have evolved into a nightmare for the PAP rather than the WP.

As Khan has already admitted to lying, and has resigned as an MP prior to the COP, is there even a need to commence with the inquiry?

What can the COP really do to Khan or WP except to strip her of her parliamentary privileges, penalize her or demand for her to step down?

But with each new revelation, more questions are being asked about their relevance and the objectivity of the COP’s inquiry, and whether the COP is being politicalized.

Simply put, the PAP has again shot itself mindlessly.

Was The Basis Of A Fair Inquiry Undermined?

The real trouble started when Edwin Tong, a lawyer, was allowed to “lead” Khan and the witnesses without any objection or restraint by Tan Chuan Jin, the COP Chairman who is also the Speaker of Parliament.

As there is no defence lawyer or a judge in attendance to counter Edwin’s attempt to “lead”, the inquiry can very easily be turned into a political attack.

To make matters worse, when Khan was allowed to be “led” into making further allegations against her party members and leaders, why didn’t the committee or its chairman make any conscientious attempt to call the WP and see if they would like to rebut these allegations before publicizing its findings by issuing a special report?

Why was a special report issued and will this be a new precedence in future COP inquiry?

In so doing, the whole inquiry became something like a political witch-hunt that needlessly strokes the tension between the pro-PAP and the pro-WP supporters.

Past “scandals” of both parties were recollected and thrown into the open, making the issue into an open mud-throwing battle between the supporters of the PAP and the WP.

The WP’s Bag Of Scandals:

Khan has notoriously earned her way into becoming one of WP’s top scandals.

Then there was Yaw Shin Leong, who was expelled from WP for having an extramarital affair with a married woman in 2012 that triggers a by-election in 2012 which WP still managed to win convincingly.

Interestingly, Yaw somehow managed to crawl himself back into the current dispute by making new allegations that he was told to stay “silent”.

And there was a public bickering between Pritam Singh and Indranee Rajah, where she alleged that “WP will have no moral authority in the future” after the AHTC scandal.

Yes, there was the AHTC trial where Pritam Singh, Sylvia Lim and Low Thia Kheng were charged with breaching their fiduciary duties to the AHTC, and where several ministers from the PAP turned it into an election issue against the WP in GE2020.

If the AHTC case was so serious, why wasn’t the PAP pursuing it as vigorously after GE2020?

Why did the PAP appoint Pritam as the LOTO after GE2020 when Indranee had openly alleged that the WP has no moral authority?

Something is just not adding up here.

Is there more than meets the eye?

The PAP’s Bag Of Scandals:

Who can forget about Michael Palmer, the PAP’s MP and former Speaker of Parliament who admitted to having a year-long affair with a constituency director of Pasir Ris West Constituency, which led to the PAP’s loss of that SMC to the WP in the by-election in 2013.

Then there was David Ong, who resigned in 2016 over his affair with a married grassroots activist at Bukit Batok.

Yes, there was another PAP’s MP, Zainudin Nordin, who was also a mayor and the former president of FAS, who was arrested for alleged misuse of public funds in 2017 and put on police bail but yet all the charges were dropped in September 2021.

Our SPF could not have arrested him for frivolous allegations, can they?

So can you imagine the amount of savings we could save should his MP’s and mayor’s pension & benefits be withdrawn for corruption, even on a lesser charge?

And there was Phey Yew Kok, a former PAP’s MP and former president and chairman of the NTUC who fled the country in 1979 but was finally charged and jailed for 5-years in 2016 for corruption after 27 years on the run.

Then there was Teh Cheang Wan, the former Minister for National Development (MND) and who headed the HDB when he was investigated in 1986 for corruption but was found dead in an apparent suicide a month later.

The findings of that COP were presented to the President only a year later and there was no special report despite the seriousness of his conduct.

Restoring Public Trust:

Teh left behind a suicide note which stated “I feel it is only right that I should pay the highest penalty for my mistake.”

In his book “The Man and His Ideas”, Lee Kuan Yew reiterated the importance of having a system where people act in accordance with certain principles: The purpose is not just to be righteous. The purpose is to create a system which will carry on because it has not been compromised. I didn’t do that just to be righteous about Teh Cheang Wan. But if I had compromised, that is the end of the system”.

LKY’s consistency in adopting zero tolerance for corruption and Teh’s final acknowledgement of the need to take accountability for his failure to act in good faith while in public office are reflective of the cornerstones that galvanizes older Singaporeans to keep faith in the old PAP of yester-years.

Parliamentarians must not forget LKY’s advice and should act in good faith if we want to preserve the integrity of our parliamentary system.

Isn’t this the key thrust of PM Lee’s message at the close the PAP Convention – winning back the trust of the people?

Hope Lee or some of his parliamentarians will heed the advice of LKY by raising the importance of re-opening some of the corruption cases involving politicians that were dropped so that the public can have greater trust in our system.

Why not start with the FAS scandal and where was the COP’s inquiry report on the former mayor to behin with?

Is The COP A Distraction?

As the COP is turning out to be a mud-throwing game between the supporters of the PAP and WP, isn’t it time to put a stop to this distraction as Singapore is still struggling with a pandemic which Lee has termed as a “crisis of a generation”?

With endless announcements of increase in basic essentials like the increase in utility charges, increase in petrol prices, increase in cost of public transport, increase in COE, upcoming increase in property tax for public housing (HDB), why aren’t parliamentarians raising these issues up in parliament or their social media platform to help address the financial stress on fellow Singaporeans?

Are our parliamentarians not aware that a large segment of our working Singaporeans are very concerned about their employment, security of jobs, struggling with under-employment, facing challenges finding a job, and that many of our entrepreneurs, enterprise owners, hawkers, taxi-drivers and gig-workers are facing severe challenges just to stay alive for just another day?

So what is our government’s response to these socio-economic challenges facing Singaporeans?

If it is so easy to increase property tax on public housing, how hard can it be in implementing wealth taxes like estate duty or inheritance taxes to help relieve the financial burden on our Working Class?
Why not start looking into increasing the GST for luxury goods & services?

Instead of wasting time and resources in bickering over the Khan-saga like some spoilt children, shouldn’t their priority be in addressing these pressing socio-economic issues?

Do parliamentarians these days still believe that Singaporeans deserve better?

    Dear JN

    Take heed, ET is the one who lamented he finds difficult to live on 500K per annum.

    I suppose he is scoring some points to probably get in to league with 2 other jokers vying to be PM.

    He is doing well by making a joker of himself at this COP.

    So he qualify to join the other 3.

    So let it be.

    this just a soap opera at play for some free entertainment during this pandemic times.

    No Singaporean Pro or Against is concerned about RK.

    This COP seems like a mirror of what Ah Loong did when he hijacked parliament to conduct a court with himself as plaintiff, prosecutor, jury, judge, insecure Prince and Dishonorable Son all rolled in one. These “special reports” shouldn’t even be put out without first getting both sides of the story – like calling WP leaders to testify before issuing such special reports. Apparently the purpose is to influence public opinion of WP before all the facts are heard and considered. And it is a disgrace that ET, as a lawyer, would scoop so low as to vehemently led those called to testify into what HE wants to think, not what are the facts.

    But as expected: A Dishonorable boss can only begets dishonorable subordinates, hor.

    There are currently many issues such as FINANCIAL ISSUES etc facing the people of Singapore and the pandemic Covid 19 and also the foolishness of the 4G Ministers that the PAP should focus on. But instead the PAP use Raeesah lie to distract people attention.

  • opposition dude:

    Alamak why need to write a long grandmother story when everything is so clear as to what is happening?

    As the author has already stated, WP survived both the town council and Yaw saga unscathed because voters had already forgotten about the town council by the time the election was held. For the by-election voters chose to ignore (that is to say, they were smarter than PAP) Yaw and instead kept faith with WP.

    So what is happening now is classic PAP in action; make the opposition look as bad as possible which will once again FAIL because they didn’t succeed in the past.

    As I have said, once the next election comes around Sengkang voters would have forgotten about Raeesah and vote WP once again just like Hougang did for Yaw.

    To be fair to both parties, a Parliamentary Ethics Committee should be set up to hear such cases, comprising equal representations from both sides and an impartial/non-partisan Chair. Based on the the conclusion of the Ethics Committee, the COP can then decide whether or not Parliamentary Privilege should be extended or removed. This means that members from both sides can be summoned before the Ethics Committee by a call from the public with 1,000 signatories. The present Inquiry has the appearance of political bias in which the Opposition MPs are being examined and put on trial by the Ruling Party.

  • Well said Joseph Nathan:

    There is a pattern in Khan’s.
    Can she be trusted to speak the truth in the hearings?
    Tong and his PAP MPs seem to be prosecuting WP MPs by their line of questioning.
    Why did they ask WP Faisal what documents Pritam and Ms Lim brought to their meetings when they could have asked Pritam and Ms Lim in the query? The Singapore mouthpiece CNA reported the COP report release extract that Faisal refused to answer the questions 4 times but did not mention the reason why Faisal refused to answer that question!
    Will political leaders tell its CEC all the reasons all the time for proposal for their policies and decisions?
    Come on, I believe even PM Lee (his father and GCT) will just tell 1-2 close confidantes the “truth” on certain issues and then his proposal is then debated and approved in the Cabinet and just like in the Parliament.
    Does our PM explain everything why he replaces certain ministers, MPs, Perm Sec, etc?
    PAP has the power to “prosecute” its members legally or otherwise, and reward accordingly but not WP.
    PAP former ministers are rewarded after retiring from politics, like Dhanabalan who was purported to have been “slapped” by LHL, though I think it is not really a physical slap as claimed by some.
    People in the Opposition can resign or criticize its former party without fear.
    They may be planted there by some party or organization, who knows? Maybe they even get financial gains or more.
    Common sense tells me – why would Pritam, Ms Lim or Faisal tell Khan to lie when the truth will come out one day? It just does not make sense!
    Yes, Pritam should have been more decisive, less “democratic”, more “ruthless” and intervened when Khan lied again in the parliament, so what if Khan denied and lied again, the truth will come out eventually. If some WP members were to resign, so be it, at least it is better than now, gets “prosecuted” and character assassinated in this episode.
    In Singapore, people want honesty and self righteousness from others (but do not stop the powers-that-be from abusing power as long as they benefit financially like subsidies, grants, etc).
    The PM has been telling its members that they must win the election in order to … in short win at all cost!

And there is the neutral judge. But this Parliamentary enquiry isn’t the sort of trial. It’s for fact-finding, and there is no neutral judge “chairman” and nothing like a balanced prosecution and defence. So Edwin Tong isn’t prosecuting, indeed should have had a bearing of soliciting and listening, and helping witnesses to make their point, etc., rather than …..

    1) PAP Ministers and Elites are earning millions dollars salaries doing farkoff. There is no pay deduction so far. Public are suffering becos of retrenchment, salary reduction.

    2) PAP allows hundreds of thousand of FT to come into Singapore to take over their jobs.

    3) Prices of everything is increasing eg electricity, water, property tax, food, transport, GST etc..

    4) LHL switches off and allows the Ministers to go on auto pilot.

    5) LHL dares not discipline or sack Ministers when they commit big mistakes. Just learn and carry on.

    6) LHL doesn’t really care about the welfare of the people.

    7) Compare to LKY. LHL is totally opposite.

    8) When there is danger of war, will Singaporeans take our rifles and fight for Singapore ? What The Fark For ? Escape to another country ASAP.

    So, it is rather amusing to see his line of questioning and his intentions even though he mentioned he has no agenda! The public knows and is used to this as it will not affect any opinions in the next GE!
    At the end of the day, what will be the result? We have seen how the energetic Georgie boy conducted the inquiry against Dr. Chee Soon Juan but in the end, where had it gone to? Where is George now?

  • if leave no stone unturned???:

    IF leave no stone unturned that the PAP gagmt always said,why KEPPEL O&M corruption scandal known worldwide and stained the country name and convicted in US court, why the case still not convictions in SINGAPORE.
    Is the many yrs of bonus of several millions given to the top people as a result of KEPPEL MADING HUGE PROFITS BECAUSE of the corruptions seized back???
    OR are they still allowed to hold on to the ill gotten gains.???
    THE case is clear cut and very obvious CORRUPTIONS PROVEN ,why no news yet after these few yrs OF INVESYTIGATION HERE???
    PEOPLE OF SINGAPORE DEMAND AN URGENT ANSWER FROM THE PAP GAGMT.

  • Stupid PAP "spin":

    It is stupid for PAP to try to “milk” this saga because it would be basing its “spin” mostly on liar Raeesah Khan. Her lies started her saga and she most likely lied again when questioned by the Committee on Privileges.

    WP did the right thing forcing Raeesah Khan to take responsibility for her lies and for giving her time to do it.

    No serious damage was done by Raeesah’s lies despite the claims of the PAP-controlled Singapore Police Force (SPF).

    BTW, has the SPF concluded its investigation on the death of the teenager last July in East Coast GRC when a basketball backboard fell on him. This is definitely NOT an accident. The teenager would be alive today if the backboard was properly designed, installed, and maintained. This is the responsibility of the East Coast Town Council headed by DPM Heng Swee Keat. When will DPM HSK accept responsibility for this tragedy apologize and resign?

  • theforgottongeneration:

    Seems like the current PAP is totally dependent on the Opposition to score points – instead of winning the Trust and Confidence of Singaporeans, they rather show how bo-liao they really are by trying to sow mistrust of the Opposition. This is the WORST kind of leadership for SG. LKY was right to say that Ah Loong’s administration is COMPLACENT (when MSK escaped). Even Ah Goh tried to nudge Loong (in Jan 2018) to settle the 4G succession issue by end 2018 but now 3 years on, the matter is still in limbo. Simply, bo-liao means bo-liao; try to hide behind ownself awarded million$ salary also cannot hide bo-liao, hor.

    Bo-liao Boss can only begets bo-liao subordinates. Hence we have junk 4G leechers (not leaders) like Edwin Tong, OYK, Sia Suay Chan, GKY, JT, etc.

  • I have a question:

    Should Vivian be subject to COP too for telling parliament and the public that the police would not use tracetogether info to prosecute people?
    When did he know? Why he didnt correct his self proclaimed ignorance and mistakes earlier? What did the Cabinet discuss regarding his so called “lies”?
    How many cabinet meetings were conducted after he “knew” about his “lies” to the parliament and public? How many people were arrested and prosecuted before and after that date? Should the cabinet release all the documents pertaining to this issues? I am sure Vivian has sought clarification with the relevant authorities and/or ministers. Should Vivian and all the relevant authorities release documents pertaining to this? It concerns public interests!
    Can the people arrested and prosecuted with the aid of the tracetogether info sue Vivian and others? It is a moot point, because the laws will protect these people even if fair minded people including judges think otherwise.
