SINGAPORE: There was a protest on Saturday at Hong Lim Park against the Central Provident Fund's (CPF) Minimum Sum Scheme. Speakers at the event also called for better returns on CPF monies.

The line-up of speakers at the "Return Our CPF" protest included former Presidential candidate Tan Kin Lian, as well as Reform Party chief Kenneth Jeyaretnam.

Also at the protest was blogger Roy Ngerng, who is currently involved in a defamation suit by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong after he alleged in a blogpost that Mr Lee misappropriated CPF savings.

Mr Ngerng called for more transparency in the CPF system and said Singaporeans should be able to withdraw all their CPF savings once they hit retirement age.
