PM Lee orders speedy review on ministers’ rental of state properties

The Singapore Land Authority (SLA) said the two residential properties were rented.

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong declared an expeditious review of the recent statement that two residential properties were rented separately by two ministers.

This stemmed from the SLA statement that Minister K Shanmugam and Minister Vivian Balakrishnan rented the properties under SLA management.

“Senior Minister and Coordinating Minister for National Security Teo Chee Hean to review the matter, and establish whether proper processes have been followed, and if there has been any wrongdoing. This must be done to ensure that this government maintains the highest standards of integrity,” said Lee.
