The High Court has put arbitration proceedings between Aljunied-Hougang Town Council (AHTC) and its former managing agent FM Solutions and Services (FMSS) on hold today.
AHTC is represented by Shook Lin & Bok, while FMSS is represented by Netto & Magin.
FMSS had initially sent AHTC a letter of demand asking for fees to be paid to it for contracts lasting between July 2011 and July 2012, as well as July 2012 to July 2015.
When this failed, both parties entered talks in October 2015. When these mediations failed, the parties entered in arbitration proceedings.
With the suspension of arbitration proceedings between AHTC and FMSS, the case brought against AHTC's Workers Party town councillors by its self-appointed independent panel will proceed.
