Marsiling Residents’ Committees (RCs) have said that a woman who was allegedly caught following a Singapore Democratic Party (SDP) team during their walkabout at Marsiling-Yew Tee GRC is not an RC member.

Sharing a partial shot of the woman who was allegedly following him and his colleagues, SDP member Abdul Salim Harun revealed that the woman identified herself as someone from the RC who was “asked to make a report” on the SDP’s movement. Mr Abdul wrote on Facebook on 22 Oct:

“So we were followed by this lady during our house to house visit earlier on in Marsiling. When we spoke to her, she claimed that she is from the RC and was asked to make a report on our movement. So much interest”

In a statement released last night, the Facebook page ‘Marsiling: Our Community, Our Home’ said that the woman is not an RC member.

The woman could, however, be an RC volunteer – the RCs said that they do not track the movement of all volunteers and thus may not be able to ascertain the full facts of the matter:

“There are 8 RCs in Marsiling. We have checked with all our RCs and none of the members fit the description of the lady identified in the report, or had met the SDP team on the night of the visit.

“We also have many residents who volunteer in the community on an informal basis from time to time, and we do not keep track of all of them. As we may not be able to ascertain the full facts of what happened that night, it’s best not to speculate further at this point.”
