The Singapore Police Force have confirmed that they are investigating a threatening letter sent to Deputy Prime Minister Shanmugaratnam. The Police said that they are unable to comment further as investigations are ongoing.

The letter, written in English and signed-off by a person who called himself ‘Eng Khoon Koh’, had two hell notes attached to it. Mr Koh Eng Khoon is the chairman of the Association for the Recycling of Second Hand Goods. Mr Koh has started various grounds-up efforts on behalf of flea market stall holders in Sungei Road. The eight decades old flea market is slated to be demolished in June to make way for new development.

Today newspaper which said that it received a copy of the handwritten letter said that it was addressed to “PM and the other MPs” and expressed anger at the Government’s decision to redevelop the Sungei Road flea market area.

(TOC) reported that Mr Koh was visited by the Police at midnight on 27 April to investigate the death threat on the Ministers, and that Mr Koh denied that he was the one who sent the death threats.
