SINGAPORE — The police is investigating reports made in relation to threatening letters sent to Government leaders, including Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and Deputy Prime Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam.

Responding to media queries, the police confirmed that reports have been lodged." We are unable to comment further as investigations are ongoing," a police spokesperson said on Saturday (Apr 29).

A copy of the handwritten letter, addressed to "PM Lee Hsien Loong and the other MPs" was also sent to TODAY, expressing anger that the Sungei Road flea market - which will be shut to make way for development from July 11 - will not be relocated. 

The letter came in an envelope which also contained Hell notes.

"Don't forget the 200 people and supporters. We only ask for this place. That's not much," wrote the letter which was signed off by "Koh Eng Khoon (Friend)".

The president of the Sungei Road market association is also named Mr Koh Eng Khoon. It is unclear if he had sent the letter or had his identity misused. Mr Koh could not be reached for comments. 

The Straits Times also reported on Saturday that Mr Tharman was among the recipients of the threatening letter.
