Chan Chun Sing on 'inaccurate information' from 2 JTC officers about Kranji woodland clearance

10:44 Min

Two officers from JTC Corporation provided "inaccurate information" to their superiors about parcels of land in Kranji that were cleared by mistake. This resulted in inaccuracies being made in a Parliamentary statement in February last year. Education Minister Chan Chun Sing, who was Trade and Industry Minister at the time of the incident, gave this update in Parliament on Thursday (Mar 10). He also corrected parts of a previous statement he had made in the House, saying that it was based on information provided by the officers. The case has been referred to the Attorney-General's Chambers to consider if any charges should be brought. In his update on Thursday, Mr Chan said that police investigations into the matter had just concluded. Their conclusions were presented to the relevant ministers earlier this week. The investigations found that the project manager and his deputy director gave "inaccurate information" to their superiors last year. The Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau was also asked to investigate and concluded that there was no corruption, said Mr Chan. Besides possible court proceedings, the officers also face disciplinary action, he added.
