FURTHER UPDATE ON CLUB’S SUIT AGAINST EX-PRESIDENT,
FREDDIE KOH SIN CHONG (“FREDDIE KOH”) FOR
RECOVERY OF CLUB MONIES
1. We wish to inform that Freddie Koh has made an offer to pay only $180,000.00 in full and final settlement of the judgment debt. The judgment sum and interest is about $1.85 million to date. Besides, Freddie Koh has been ordered to pay the Club costs of the hearing and the appeal which are yet to be taxed or assessed.
2. As Freddie Koh’s offer is less than 10% of the judgment sum and interest (excluding costs), the Club has been legally advised that the said offer is derisory and insincere. As such, it cannot be accepted.
3. Pursuant to the EGM Resolutions passed on 4 March 2012, the Management Committee (“MC”) is under a duty to exhaust all legal avenues to recover the legal costs and expenses utilised by Freddie Koh in his unsuccessful defence of the defamation suit instituted by 4 former MC members against him.
4. Accordingly, the Club has commenced bankruptcy proceedings against him and the Creditor’s Bankruptcy Application is fixed for hearing on 4 August 2016.
5. We shall keep you posted of any further development.
The full Judgment can be found in our Club website: www.sswimclub.org.sg

Judgement Document on Club's Suit against
Ex-President, Freddie Koh Sin Chong (“Freddie Koh”) for Recovery of Club Monies
There have been outbreaks of Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease (HFMD) occurring in childcare centres, kindergartens, and schools lately.
While there have been no reports of HFMD at the Club, we nevertheless urge members to remain vigilant to look out for symptoms in their children and quarantine them if necessary to curb the spread of the disease.
The Ministry of Health has advised for a child with HFMD to remain at home, as he or she is infectious throughout the duration of the illness. The child should not be brought to any public or crowded places, and should only resume normal activities after the expiry of the medical certificate and when fully recovered.
As a preventive measure, the Club has stepped up its disinfection procedures at places where children usually gather.
We thank you for your civic-mindedness and cooperation.
