The Committee of Privileges looking into the lies of Raeesah Khan said in its fifth report that it has issued a summons each to Mr Pritam Singh, Ms Sylvia Lim and Mr Faisal Manap.
The Committee had previously asked the three leaders of the Workers’ Party to produce documents including internal correspondence between senior leadership concerning issues raised in the Committee. These requests were first raised on various occasions from 10 December 2021 to 14 December 2021 when Mr Pritam Singh, Ms Sylvia Lim and Mr Faisal Manap had appeared before the Committee to assist in the hearing into the lies of Raseeah Khan and her culpability.
However, Mr Pritam Singh, Ms Sylvia Lim and Mr Faisal Manap have failed and/or refused to provide them, the Committee said.
As such, the Committee said it has issued a summons each to Mr Pritam Singh, Ms Sylvia Lim and Mr Faisal Manap on 15 December 2021.
The three top leaders of the Workers’ Party will have to appear before the Committee and produce the documents on Monday, 20 December 2021.
The Special Report said the proceedings of the Committee have largely concluded save for a few outstanding matters which will be assessed and addressed by the Committee henceforth and the Committee will present its findings and recommendations to Parliament in due course.
The hearing into the lies uttered by former WP MP Raeesah Khan has seen 4 WP MPs and 2 WP cadres appear before the Committee besides Ms Raeesah Khan.
Apart from the three top leaders of the Workers’ Party, Jamus Lim also appeared the Committee to assist in the hearing. Ms Loh Pei Ying and Yudhishthra Nathan also appeared before the Committee. Ms Loh was Ms Raeesah’s secretarial assistant before she resigned. She has been a party member for 10 years, and was WP chief Pritam Singh’s secretarial assistant. Mr Nathan has been a volunteer since 2013, became a member in 2016 and had been in the council of the WP youth wing.
