Edwin Tong on Notification for Relief during COVID-19 pandemic(Updated: )
About five weeks after a new COVID-19 law took effect, 3,943 notifications for contractual relief have been served using the online system. Senior Minister of State for Law Edwin Tong gave this update on the Notification for Relief (NFR) served as of May 29 in Parliament on Thursday (Jun 4), in reply to an MP’s question. He said an NFR could also be served in hard copy. His ministry is unable to track the number served in hard copy. He also urged contracting parties to be fair and reasonable to each other so that they can reach a solution that is mutually acceptable.
