The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) has been paying for the accommodation of some foreign workers here, and this has raised some eyebrows.
Why use taxpayers' money this way, some ask?
But the ministry told The New Paper that it requires foreigners who are key witnesses - usually in cases of employment-related offences - to be present in Singapore.
Non-government organisations that help migrant workers feel that paying their accommodation is fair, as these foreigners have nowhere else to stay. But not everyone agrees.
