The Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB) has wrapped its investigations into Transport Minister S Iswaran.

This matter is currently pending review by the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC).

On behalf of PM Lee, Mr Chan was replying to a parliamentary question from Progress Singapore Party’s (PSP) Non-Constituency MP Hazel Poa, who requested an update about the case.

Mr Chan acknowledged that there has been much public interest in the matter.

“I want to give my assurance that this case will be put through the due legal process,” he stated.

Mr Chan confirmed that the CPIB has completed a “robust and thorough investigation” involving the Transport Minister.

However, he highlighted that it would “not be appropriate to comment on the matter” at this point, as the AGC is currently reviewing the case.
