WP MPs Low Thia Khiang, Sylvia Lim and Pritam Singh are among eight defendants embroiled in two multi-million-dollar civil suits brought by the town councils in a saga that has gone on for almost six years.

The suits allege that improper payments of $33.7 million were made by the town councils between 2011 and 2015 to FM Solutions and Services (FMSS) and FM Solutions and Integrated Services (FMSI).

Earlier this year in April, when the WP MPs were back in court to round up their arguments, lawyers for the Workers’ Party Members of Parliament (MPs) said the lawsuits’ claim of S$33.7 million was “entirely speculative” and that only S$15,710 was recoverable.

This was six months after the Aljunied-Hougang Town Council (AHTC) trial officially begun.

The Workers’ Party also recently unveiled the executive committee members of their youth wing.
