Hsien Yang ups the ante on dispute with elder brother

5477

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s younger brother has upped the ante in the dispute centered around the house of their father, Lee Kuan Yew. In a scathing statement released yesterday, the siblings of PM Lee said that they had no confidence in him.

The siblings, Lee Hsien Yang and Lee Wei Ling, spilling the beans of their discontent over his rule and said that they are “disturbed by the character, conduct, motives and leadership of their brother.”

Siblings says they have no confidence in the Prime Minister

PM Lee responded to their allegations saying their statement has hurt their father’s legacy. He said his family denied the allegations.

My siblings’ statement has hurt our father’s legacy: Prime Minister

The Prime Minister’s Office has since released a note by the Cabinet Secretary saying a Ministerial Committee had been set up to consider the options for Mr Lee’s house and that the PM had recused himself from all Government decisions concerning the House.

The Cabinet Secretary added that PM Lee had provided the Ministerial Committee a statutory declaration on the last Will of his father. The PM’s siblings had not provided such a sworn statement yet, he added.

Earlier this evening Hsien Yang released another statement in his Facebook blasting the Ministerial Committee as a “secret” one, and that PM Lee had provided his statutory declaration to “his committee”.

He suggested that PM Lee is two-faced – that he provided one set of answers regarding his father’s Will in public, and another when he addressed the Ministerial Committee.

“When was he lying?” the younger Lee asked.

He insisted that the Will is final and binding and added, “we have no confidence in Lee Hsien Loong or his secret committee.”

In speaking to Reuters after releasing his statement on Facebook, Hsien Yang said that he was afraid that the authorities may stop him from leaving the country or take other action against him.

“Lots of things can happen to me. They have stopped people from leaving the country. I suppose if they do, they would have to explain at least. I don’t think there are any grounds to.” – Lee Hsien Yang

Hsien Yang’s older sister, Dr Lee Wei Ling, had suggested in another Facebook message that Hsien Yang had been bullied.

I am out of Singapore, with erratic and slow internet connection. The article that appeared in the Singapore press gave…

“(As) Hsien Yang got most of the bullying, he could not help but allow his emotion to be expressed in the press statement.” – Dr Lee Wei Ling

  1. So all those that call him incompetent, idiot, coward, snake have been proven right when his own brother does not trust him. He not only went behind his siblings back, he does not want to honour his father’s wishes. Just saying.

  2. Where is LKY values? Three kids also can’t keep their father values by openly showing the dark side of Lee family… No wander LKY let the third gen use surname Li instead of Lee…. Maybe he foresee that u three idiots will tarnish his name … Really painful to see such drama…

  3. Why were LWL & LHY made the executors and trustees and not LHL & that butch? It was obvious old man knew the dishonourable son was dishonourable.

    • He knows that he will sure lose if go to court that’s why use a committee lor… same as election… know going to lose Liao then redraw boundaries. Behaving like an emperor huh.

  4. The younger Mr Lee and Ms Lee are the executors of Mr Lee Kuan Yew’s will. They said in the statement that PM Lee was removed as executor in 2011. Beware.
    The joint statement also said that the younger Mr Lee was leaving Singapore “for the foreseeable future” and “against his desires” because there was a fear that organs of state would be used against him, his wife Mrs Lee Suet Fern, and Ms Lee. Beware?
    Lord Pannick has advised that he disagrees with the AG’s advice, and that section 22 Presidential Elections (Amendment) Act 6 of 2017 as it stands is unconstitutional. Beware?
    From unlikely to find someone that can challenge Tan Cheng Bock, to Tan Cheng Bock cannot even be a candidate. Beware?
    From Wee Kim Wee is simply and clearly not an Elected President, period.
    To bullshit, bullshit, bullshit, … Wee Kim Wee … Elected President. Beware?
    We question whether able leaders with independent political legitimacy will be sidelined to ensure Hsien Loong’s grip on power remains unchallenged.
    We see many upright leaders of quality and integrity throughout the public service, but they are constrained by Hsien Loong’s misuse of power at the very top.
    Explaining why Mr Tharman Shanmugaratnam is not PM?
    If PM can misuse his official power to abuse his siblings who can fight back, what else can he do to ordinary citizens.
    Do Dr Lee Wei Ling and Mr Lee Hsien Yang look like ‘someone you can easily abuse’?

  5. It is sad to read this family disputes when 3 are siblings and have no qualms about how the world will view Singapore with their family affairs . All the efforts made by all Singaporean has been destroyed by their personal feud. Our economy and values will be greatly affected.
