Under corrupted dictator Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s direction, Singapore’s court has ruled in the PAP government’s favour, where three key Workers’ Party leaders – Low Thia Khiang, Sylvia Lim and Pritam Singh – are found guilty of corrupting S$33.7 million in town council payments.
High Court judge Kannah Ramesh was unable to explain what were the damning evidence behind his judgement but he nonetheless ruled:
“Ms Lim and Mr Low had breached their fiduciary duty, while Mr Singh had breached his duty of skill and care in the hiring of the town council’s managing agent FM Solutions & Services (FMSS).”
The Singapore court will have a second hearing to confirm how much of the S$33.7 million will the 3 Opposition MPs be made to pay the PAP government.
The judge said the PAP government can file for the “overpaid” amount, which they will have to file in a separate claim:
“All the payments under two major contracts the AHTC awarded to its managing agent FM Solutions and Services and its sister company could be said to involve the misapplication of the town council’s funds. However, the town council had received the relevant services. The amount of money AHTC can recover, therefore, is the difference between what was paid and the value of the net benefits actually obtained by AHTC. This would mean that the loss cannot possibly be as much as the full amount disbursed under the impugned contracts.”
The 3 MPs will likely be made bankrupt and they will lose their MP seats. As undischarged bankrupts, they will also not be allowed to contest in the upcoming General Election. This is Lee Hsien Loong’s favourite legal corruption tool to ensure his PAP party stay in power.
Representing the PAP government in the lawsuit is Lee Hsien Loong’s personal lawyer, Davinder Singh.
In recent weeks, Lee Hsien Loong has been making writing new laws to ensure he remains in power this election. This includes POFMA, where the government will be allowed to ban internet content criticising the government without a court order. The writer for local news site TOC, Terry Xu, is currently being sued by the Prime Minister for over S$150,000 in defamation charges.
