WP Town Council claims trial over unlicensed fair allegations

Statement from Workers’ Party chairman, Sylvia Lim:

“Aljunied-Hougang-Punggol East Town Council is facing a summons from NEA in relation to this Lunar New Year Community and Floral Fair that we held recently at the Hougang Central Park.”

“So today was the first mention and through our lawyers we told the court that we intend to claim trial to the charge, and we intend to mount a defence and seek justice from the court.”

“I would also like to clarify that the lawyers we have hired are from the same firm that I am associated with.”

“But, we will not be touching any town council’s funds to mount this defence. We will be raising funds from elsewhere.”

“Neither me nor any Workers’ Party members will have any share in any fees that are paid to the law firm.”
