SINGAPORE — On Tuesday (Feb 15), Parliament is debating a report by the Committee of Privileges which looked into the conduct of Ms Raeesah Khan, a former Workers' Party (WP) Member of Parliament who has since resigned after she confessed to lying in the House.

The committee released its report on Thursday last week. The report recommended fining Ms Khan S$35,000 for lying to the House multiple times and abusing her parliamentary privilege. It also proposed referring WP chief Pritam Singh and party vice-chairman Faisal Manap to the Public Prosecutor to "consider if criminal proceedings ought to be instituted", due to Mr Singh's conduct during the committee's probe and Mr Faisal's refusal to answer relevant questions.
