Heng Swee Keat on motion for Sylvia Lim and Low Thia Khiang to recuse themselves from AHTC's financial matters

(Updated: )

Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat has introduced a motion in Parliament calling for two opposition party members of Aljunied-Hougang Town Council to "recuse" themselves from all financial matters. This follows a recent civil suit ruling that found Workers' Party chairman Sylvia Lim and senior member Low Thia Khiang liable for the misuse of town council funds. DPM Heng made the call on Tuesday (Nov 5) to put forth the motion to affirm the importance of high standards of integrity and accountability in Parliament.
