Loh was Raeesah’s secretarial assistant while Yudhisthra also assisted Raeesah.
Here’s their Facebook post reproduced:
Since December 2021, we have removed ourselves from volunteer work towards the Workers’ Party’s wards and efforts. We have remained members in name, and have not been actively contributing.
For this reason, we’ve decided to resign. These past 11 months haven’t been easy for us, and we feel it’s come to a point where it’s time for us to move on from being members of the Workers’ Party. We want to return to being regular citizens, free to express ourselves as individuals, without others questioning our loyalties and allegiances.
We’ve both been with the party for 9 years or more, and have been cadres since 2016. In these years, we’ve loved the party dearly, and contributed actively in many teams and departments, both grassroots and strategic. One of the highlights is definitely our work towards the Walking with Singapore: The Workers’ Party 60th Anniversary book; a chapter of Singapore’s history we felt important to tell.
We hold our memories of our time in the Workers’ Party with fondness. We’ve made lifelong friends in each other, and with others along the way.
There are many good people in the rank and file of the Workers’ Party who’ve dedicated their lives towards building a better Singapore. We hope they remember to keep the welfare of Singaporeans at the centre of all that they do.
News of their resignations saw them coming under attack from WP supporters who accused them of being backstabbers and traitors.
“I’m very aware of the ramifications of what I’ve shared, including these WhatsApp conversations,” she said, tearing up.
“It pains me greatly, but to me, beyond anything else, it’s important to be truthful to my country.”
Yudhisthra Nathan had been a WP volunteer since 2013, became a member in 2016 and had been in the council of the WP youth wing. He testified at the COP that the leaders of WP were not upfront about being told of Raeesah’s lies in Parliament. He corroborated Raeesah’s evidence about being told to take the lie to the grave.
