Much has been made about the NKF scandal and the way its officials have abused donated money. The Government is now pleading naivete about the incident, effectively saying that it was blind-sided.
However, this doesn’t seem to square with events that took place. What are these events? What are we to make of them? How can we keep the matter from being swept under the carpet? What does this mean in the larger context of the GIC, HDB, and CPF?
These and many other troubling questions over the Government’s handling of the entire NKF fiasco – as well as transparency and accountability issues – will be the subject at the Public Forum organised by the Singapore Democrats:
The Government’s role in the NKF scandal
13 January 2006, 7 pm
277 Orchard Road
Rose Room, Basement Level
next to the Somerset MRT Station
But more than just asking questions, the SDP will also explore ways of how the people can compel the PAP to make our system more transparent and be more accountable. Remember, its not just the NKF we’re talking about. Think about your CPF savings, why you’re paying so much for your HDB flat, the salaries of the ministers, and the billions of dollars held by the GIC…
See you there!
