MOF and MND issued a joint statement in response to AHPETC’s media release following a parliamentary debate on Monday, 17th August. AHPETC has simply misquoted DPM Tharman, and attributed to him statements he did not make. DPM Tharman did not make any statement on whether AHPETC could fulfil its obligations if the MND grant “is paid in entirety into AHPETC’s Sinking Funds”. Further, he did not refer to AHPETC’s sinking fund obligations for FY14/15, i.e. ending 31 Mar 2015.
