A member of the public had lodged a police report about the fliers, which highlighted AHPETC’s exorbitant managing agent rates as compared to PAP town councils, and alleged that improper governance led to AHPETC overpaying its friends at FMSS by at least S$6.4 million.
Police said in a statement, “In consultation with the Attorney-General’s Chambers on the police report made on the distribution of flyers at Aljunied Group Representation Constituency, it has been determined that there is no offence disclosed.”
“The distribution of fliers in itself is not an offence in Singapore.”
PAP activists might have the legal mandate to distribute these flyers, but their actions have upset many residents in Aljunied GRC.
Some 65% of those that Redwire polled say they are offended by this attempt to discredit the Workers’ Party, which runs AHPETC, calling it “petty”.
Most say that the PAP would win more support if they spent their time and money improving the lives of residents there.
