Deputy Prime Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam was sent a threatening letter attached with two pieces of hell note money under the name of the Sungei Road thieves market President.
Mainstream media reported that the letter was sent to DPM Tharman from someone who signed off as Eng Khoon Koh and attached two pieces of hell note money to it.
As a result of police investigations, the one room flat of Mr Koh Eng Khoon, President of the Association for Recycling Second Hand Goods was raided at midnight while his wife was sleeping.
Mr Koh when interviewed denied any involvement and the police searched him home and confiscated his phone. Mr Koh does not even know how to write in English.
In February this year, Mr Koh started a petition to allocate an alternative site for Sungei Road vendors so the local heritage can be preserved. The Government has already decided the market would not be allowed to continue even at a new premises. Mr Koh has made a police report about the matter and hopes his name can be cleared.
