Statement on Ms Parti Liyani's Illegal Deployment Complaint

Statement on Ms Parti Liyani's Illegal Deployment Complaint

1     In October 2017, Ms Parti Liyani made a report of illegal deployment by her employer’s spouse Mrs Liew, to her son Mr Karl Liew’s residence between September and October 2016, and to his office around 2012 and 2013.

2     The Ministry investigated her complaint and found that Mrs Liew deployed her to Mr Karl Liew’s house and office on different occasions. At the conclusion of the investigation in May 2018, the Ministry issued a caution to Mrs Liew and an advisory to Mr Karl Liew. The issuing of a caution, on these facts, is consistent with the approach taken in other similar cases.

3     In light of the comments by Justice Chan in the case of Parti Liyani v PP, the Ministry is in consultation with the Attorney-General’s Chambers as to whether further action, if any, ought to be taken in this case.
