Attorney-General vs AHPETC: Post CA Judgment statement (Media Release 27 Nov 2015)
The Aljunied-Hougang Town Council (AHTC) fully accepts and respects the Court of Appeal’s (CA) judgment, and the orders made therein. We will comply with all the orders made by the Court.
The Town Council acknowledges its role as a guardian of public funds. We assure the Ministry of National Development (MND) that government grants or grants-in-aid are used solely for the upkeep of the town and in the interests of all residents.
In view of the judgment, we will work with the Ministry to facilitate the prompt transfer of the outstanding grants to AHTC, which have been withheld for two years, so it can make the remaining outstanding quarterly sinking fund transfers as required by law.
