PAP MP Tan Wu Meng commenting on the police investigations into the breaches of the Cooling Off / Polling Day restrictions said in his Facebook yesterday that the law should take its course. He took issue with the statement the Workers’ Party (WP) issued on the matter and said that WP Central Executive Committee Member and NCMP Mr Leon Perera has been linked to one of the  websites under investigation (The Independent Singapore [TISG]). He said that WP did not declare this in its statement.
“Given this, WP should be aware that it could be seen as having an interest in the outcome of the investigation, and that every effort should be made by WP to avoid the impression that WP is trying to interfere with the investigation,” the PAP MP said. Dr Tan’s Facebook comments were reported in The Straits Times today.
WP NCMP Leon Perera responded to Dr Tan’s allegations in his Facebook and said:
“I refer to the newspaper reports quoting People’s Action Party Member of Parliament Dr Tan Wu Meng in relation to the Workers’ Party’s statement on the investigations about alleged “Cooling-Off Day” violations. I would like to reiterate that I am not involved in the management and operations of The Independent Singapore, nor am I a member of its Board. As a minority share-holder, my role is limited to providing occasional advice on long-term business strategy, not on editorial decisions or content. This is a matter of public record, last declared here (http://mothership.sg/…/dull-introverted-and-bookish-but-th…/).

People linked with TISG, were called up on Monday (31 May), Tuesday (1 June) and Wednesday (2 June), to assist the police with their investigations into the alleged breaches of Cooling Off / Polling Day restrictions.
TISG has rendered its fullest cooperation so far in this matter in the investigation process.
