A general manager and secretary of Ang Mo Kio Town Council is under investigation by the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB) for “the way he handles contracts and dealings in the town council”. The general manager and secretary, Mr Victor Wong, works for CPG Facilities Management. He has been put on forced leave.

No further details were given about the possible rot at a town council helmed by Prime Minister . But Mr Ang Hin Kee, the town council’s chairman said the complaint “arose out of his (the General Manager’s) dealings which relates to probable behaviour needing investigation done by CPIB”. The complaint against Mr Wong was made in September, and he was removed from his duties last month.

Mr Ang who is also an MP of the constituency said. “Needless to say, the town council ourselves will render all assistance needed to ensure zero tolerance for corruption.”

Mr Ang’s comments that town council staff are constantly reminded to declare any interests concerning tenders being awarded by the council, suggests that the investigations center around contracts being handled by the general manager and undeclared potential conflicts of interests.

“If there are declarations to be made, if there are interests to declare, the people involved (must) make those declarations”. – Ang Hin Kee

The GRC was held by the People’s Action Party () at that time and Mr George Yeo was its anchor-Minister. Mr Wong was the Assistant Treasurer of the Serangoon Management Committee (CCMC).
