Workers’ Party leaders Low Thia Kiang, Sylvia Lim and Pritam Singh have been hit be their second lawsuit involving Aljunied-Hougang Town Council’s finances.
This comes after Pasir Ris-Punggol Town Council announced today that it has started High Court proceedings against them for alleged improper payments.
Pasir-Ris Punggol Town Council’s legal action comes after AHTC’s independent panel took out its own lawsuit against the trio on 21 Jul this year.
The defendants of the AHTC lawsuit are: Mr Low, Ms Lim, Mr Singh, Mr Chua Zhi Hon, Mr Kenneth Foo Seck Guan, Ms How Weng Fan, the administrators of the late Mr Danny Loh and FM Solutions and Services.
Pasir Ris-Punggol Town Council has tarted proceedings against the same defendants.
The Town Council said that it has commenced legal proceedings to carry out its duty to its residents to recover what is due.
This stems from Punggol-East SMC having been included in the overall management of Pasir Ris Punggol GRC.
The SMC had previously been managed under AHPETC – now AHTC after the Workers’ Party lost Punggol-East to the PAP in GE2015.
Commenting on the lawsuit by AHTC’s independent panel, WP leaders have denied any impropriety and said they have not benefitted “a single cent”.
