SINGAPORE: On January 18, a courtroom charged S Iswaran, the former minister of transportation in Singapore, with several offenses, including corruption. He entered not-guilty pleas to all 27 accusations.
Not long after, it was announced that Iswaran had resigned on Tuesday from his positions as a minister, West Coast member of parliament, and member of the People’s Action Party.
He was given permission on February 8 to travel to Australia for roughly two weeks to assist his son with his university transition from Singapore.
Following his initial announcement that he was supporting an inquiry, the following is the course of events as reported by the Corrupt Practices Inquiry Bureau (CPIB).
The CPIB declared early on July 12 that S Iswaran, the transport minister at the time, would be helping with an inquiry into a case the organization had discovered. It provided no further details regarding the subject of the investigation.
