However, on Monday (June 22), Mr Lim posted an update on Facebook indicating that a police report may not be filed.

Mr Lim, Mr Damanhuri and Mr Gomez re-visited the block concerned to re-distribute campaign cards. This time, however, they were “stuffed underneath the doors”.

The party had asked the resident who had brought up the matter to make a joint police report but had not heard from him since.

The SDP team re-distributed campaign cards at the block, this time putting them under doors.

Mr Lim said that “the game may have gotten dirtier but our resolve has only grown stronger”. Mr Damanhuri seconded the notion, writing on Facebook: “This is what sadly we are up against. But we walk and strive on.”
