WP is only liable for not discharging their duties properly for AHTC, the rest still talk of evidence, Kannan Ramesh still has not proven without a doubt, the issue of liabilities for damages suffered by AHTC and the % of liabilities still has not been substantiated, how can they close the case just like that? Contributed by Oogle.
I have a question and it is bothering me. Could somebody kindly explain and educate me. I thank you in advance.
High Court judge, Kannan Ramesh, found WP MPs, Low TK, Sylvia Lim and Pritam Singh guilty and liable for damages suffered by AHTC.
In the words of the learned judge, the defendants breached their fiduciary duties, care and skill to AHTC. “When people are put in charge of a town council, they enter into a relationship of trust and confidence. This, in turn, means that they have fiduciary duties to the town council”. Mr Kannan Ramesh went further, “So, this duty requires town councillors to serve the interest of their town council with single minded loyalty and for the proper purpose”.
Although no 2 cases are exactly the same and AMK town council’s former general manager, Victor Wong, has pleaded guilty to his corruption charges for being on the take for about 2 years, between the two cases, there are plenty of similarities.
It is easy to push the blame to Victor Wong, argue and conclude that he has been punished but Victor Wong was never an elected Member of Parliament. I repeat. Victor Wong was never an elected member of Parliament for AMK GRC.
All those 6 AMK GRC members of Parliament, namely, Lee Hsien Loong, Koh Poh Koon, Ang Hin Kee, Darryl David, Gan Thiam Poh and Intan Azura Mokhtar were totally sleeping on their jobs for about 2 years that resulted in their town council’s funds being lost through Victor Wong’s corrupt behaviours. Isn’t what happened at AMK GRC also a breach of fiduciary duties by all the 6 pap members of Parliament at the highest level at AMK GRC and a lack of care and skill too? Under their watch, like in the AHTC’s case, public funds have been lost. Shouldn’t steps also need to be instituted to recover the monies due to the residents of AMK GRC from them too? Think.
I thank you all for reading my post again.
