Senior Minister Of State's Wife Is Appointed Auditor-General, No Conflict Of Interest

Senior Minister Of State's Wife Is Appointed Auditor-General, No Conflict Of Interest

As Chan Chun Sing himself said, the Govt knows that Ms Goh is the wife of Heng Chee How, but that she had went through the rigourous process of integrity checks, and she has years of experience in the public service, serving the nation with integrity and sense of public service. So of course, she is above and beyond conflict of interest. When she audits her husband's Ministry, she will of course, in the name of duty, flag up any inconsistencies, and by doing so, show up her husband's lack of leadership. After all, the sense of duty for the nation is above than the sense of duty of a wife, right?

The Auditor-General has been ordered to take a look at the financial accounts of the Aljunied-Hougang-Punggol East Town Council (AHPETC) for the Financial year 2012-2013. This comes after the National Development and Finance Ministries released a joint statement emphasising that town councils have to keep proper financial records to ensure that their assets are properly under control. The Workers' Party run town council has been in the spotlight for quite some time since an independent auditor found that there were missing financial records from certain transactions such as expenses for lift upgrading and repair as well as missing receipts for advances on S&CC since 2012. The auditor also commented that the town council had not adhered to the requirements to keep good financial records.
