SDP youth arm's article 'misleading': Singapore Land Authority
'Mischievous' post caused Pulau Ubin residents undue anxiety, says SLA
The Singapore Land Authority (SLA) has accused the youth arm of the Singapore Democratic Party (SDP) of posting a "mischievous" article online "to mislead the public" on Pulau Ubin's development and cause undue anxiety to the island's residents.
The article, on the Young Democrats' visit to the island in May, was uploaded on the party's website last Wednesday.
Yesterday, the SLA, custodian of state land, denied its claim that the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) had approached resident Chua Bing Qing in 2009 to evict him, but later charged him rent for using the land after learning that the house he lived in was his mother's.
The URA did not approach him, "much less to evict or charge him rent as claimed", the SLA said on its Facebook page.
