Changi Airport Group (CAG) chairman Liew Mun Leong has contributed to Singapore and Singaporeans, and the public should listen to his side of the story too, Temasek International chief executive Dilhan Pillay Sandrasegara said.
Pillay gave his take on the recent court case regarding Liew's actions involving his family's domestic helper, in response to media queries at the annual Temasek Review on Tuesday, Sep. 8.
Liew is a senior international adviser at Temasek.
Here is Pillay's response in full:
"I think first thing that I should say is that there are many individuals who have contributed to both public service and to the private sector in Singapore for the benefit of Singapore and our population as a whole.
Liew Mun Leong is one of those persons and his track record at CapitalLand, at Changi Airport Group, and at Surbana Jurong attests to that.
The court case just had one phase of it done. There are ongoing proceedings and I don't think it's appropriate for me to comment on on that.
What I can say is that I think we, we should hear from Mr Liew on his side of the issue, and not come quick to judgment, until we've heard all sides of things."
After dismissing Parti Liyani in 2016, Liew's family lodged a police report against her and accused her of stealing more than S$34,000 worth of items from them.
Singapore's High Court has since acquitted Parti of stealing from her former employers.
