Tan Jee Say clarifies: I was not evicted from Orchard Road base
Posted by temasektimes on July 24, 2012
A Straits Times article last Saturday titled “Tan Jee Say faces eviction from Orchard Road base” claimed that Mr Tan has been told to leave the office he initially rented to hold policy discussions by the landlord, Singapore Land Authority (SLA).
However, it transpired that Mr Tan is not a director nor shareholder of Chanson F&B Pte Ltd, the company who is the tenant that has been served a termination notice by SLA.
Though Mr Tan’s wife Patricia is a shareholder of Chanson F&B, she is also not a director.
Mr Tan has been prevented from carrying out his original plan to hold policy discussions at the office premises, because the SLA had informed Chanson F&B in June that it was not allowed to do so, as it would be in breach of the terms and conditions of use of the premises in the tenancy agreement.
A former high-ranking civil servant, Mr Tan is a REAL opposition leader who contested in last year’s General and Presidential Elections.
