Ridout Road rentals Controversy:

In 2023, K. Shanmugam and PAP Minister Vivian Balakrishnan were investigated by the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau(CPIB) for their rentals of state-owned bungalows at Ridout Road. 

The CPIB did investigation and found that neither Shnamugam nor Balakrishnan had committed any wrongdoing.


Why did the two ministers decide to rent the two Ridout Road properties?


K. Shanmugam wanted to sell his good-class bungalow in Astrid Hill and move into a rental property, after being advised that it would be wiser not to have most of his savings in a single asset.

Shanmugam stated that most of the rent paid for 26 Ridout Road, amounting to $26,500 per month, comes from renting out his family home.
