A construction firm will be prosecuted in court on June 24 after 12 mosquito breeding habitats were found at two of its worksites.

The National Environment Agency (NEA) issued four stop work orders at the D'Leedon and Leedon Residence condominium projects in the Holland area between April 10 and May 15. They are being developed by CapitaLand and GuocoLand respectively.

In a statement on Tuesday, NEA said that 173 dengue cases have been reported in the Farrer-Holland area. It did not name the contractor being prosecuted.

Investigations revealed that dengue transmission in the cluster is likely to have originated from the Leedon Residence construction site as 130 cases involved workers there. The rest involved residents.
