Singapore’s national auditor – the Auditor-General’s Office (AGO) – flagged that the National Arts Council (NAC), a government agency, had paid a consultancy fee of S$410,000 for the construction of a bin centre which cost S$470,000.

The consultancy fee was said to be “exceptionally high” and there was “inadequate assessment on the reasonableness” of it – the consultancy fee is 87.2% of the cost of construction.

According to The Independent Singapore, it dug out that the key consultants should be W Architects, Arup Singapore, T.Y. Lin International, and Rider Levett Bucknall LLP, Singapore (https://theindependent.sg.sg/hiring-over-qualified-professionals-led-to-nac-paying-410k-consultancy-fee-for-470k-bin).

The Managing Director of W Architects is Mok Wei Wei. He is also on the boards of the Ministry of National Development, the Singapore Land Authority and the Urban Redevelopment Authority.

Mok Wei Wei’s father is Mok Lee Kwang, a journalist who wrote the article, “The Prime Minister I Know”, for the Chinese daily Nanyang Siang Pau, and whom the latter said had taught Lee Kuan Yew Chinese.

Mok Lee Kwang wrote: “Mr Lee is only 36 years old and his future is like that of the rising sun. I wish he will continue to serve the people and be loved by all forever!”

Lee Kuan Yew is the first prime minister of Singapore. His son is currently the third prime minister of Singapore.
