Lee Wei Ling releases email questioning if PAP and Indranee Rajah are telling the whole story

17961

The People’s Action Party (PAP) released a video today titled ‘What Mr Lee Kuan Yew actually said about 38 Oxley Road’. The video said that Mr Lee Kuan Yew’s will has been selectively quoted by others, and that they had highlighted only the first part of the ‘demolition clause’.

The video went on to say that in the second part of the clause, Mr Lee acknowledged that “Cabinet members were unanimous that 38 Oxley Road should not be demolished” as he wanted.

The video emphasised: “Me Lee clearly recognised that the house could be preserved.”

Senior Minister of State indranee Rajah echoed the PAP’s video in a Facebook post and said that the “Demolition was not the only option contemplated by Mr Lee Kuan Yew.”

The video and the PM’s Parliamentary Statement on calls to honour Mr Lee Kuan Yew on 13 April 2015, suggests that Mr Lee Kuan Yew was resigned to the fact that the Cabinet wanted the house preserved, and that he wanted to frustrate the wishes of the Cabinet to convert it into a museum.

PAP releases video saying Lee Kuan Yew recognised that his house may be preserved, ahead of PM Lee’s Parliamentary address

Lee Kuan Yew’s daughter, Dr Lee Wei Ling, however pointed out that her father’s true wishes had been taken out of context and that her elder brother, the Prime Minister himself had set the context straight in his email dated 12 April 2015 to his siblings.

The email said: “I say in my reply that the Will is subsequent to his note to cabinet, and that Papa’s position has been consistent throughout. Even his [LKY’s] note to Cab did not say that he wanted it preserved, only what has to be done if it is not to be demolished.”

Now the PAP itself has decided to opine on the matter of our father's true wishes for 38 Oxley by taking a note of his…

  1. Bottom line is LHL is afraid to face the electorate on his own ..he wanna make it into a shrine where even kindergarten kids r forced to visit….. last election he invoke LKY name n manage to win xtra votes. If u talk to the new FTS n immigrants. .they’ll praise LKY to the skies. .. but when u say now is LHL times who is worse…they’ll deny

    • Ya la
      For papa and mama surely if all of you could have come to an agreement. Instead, now shy only But still each want you own way – so don’t use papa and mama name better

  2. Now all the worms are coming out of the woodwork

    LKY never deviated from wanting the house demolished. But he understood lhl could, and may had even anticipated that the lhl would, and he cannot stop lhl from enacting laws or implementing measures to prevent his paramount wish from being implemented

  3. At first it was interesting , intriguing and some part comical….. now it getting serious and alarming to learnt how a straight forward case can be twist by people in power and use every organ in the government to get what they one….scary shit!

  4. LKY wanted house 38 demolished. Very clear, no doubt about that. That is LKY nature. Alive he will go to the end of the world to get what he wanted. But he realised that in death, this is not possible especially after being told in no uncertain term by a unanimous cabinet that they wanted house 38 preserve. His son the PM also told him that. So those two paragraphs were added as a sort of contingency plan should the government intervene and preserve the house. To stretch this fall back plan as LKY being agreeable to also preserving house 38 is pure nonsense. LKY also tried to get the Law Minister on his side by seeking his advise as to how to get his wish to demolish the house. But this guy turned against him. He obliquely appealed to HC in one of his email to intervene with his PM son. He even resorted to dropping this son as an executive of his will, probably foreseeing that this son will not be loyal to him on this issue.

  5. Forward below message on the Facebook of GCT, MParader a few times but rejected by the admin of the Facebook. I place here so that fellow citizens will like to know. Thanks.

    Dear GCT,

    Can verify those websites below where the episode has been published in physical book – page 150, etc (Not just a picture with a quote next to it!) since you are present in the actual incident:

    Hopefully either LHL or GCT can comment on the above episode as both are present during the above incident for the ‘coming parliament hearing’ on 3 July 2017. Millions of fellow citizens will like to know the truth where official Public Apology should be forward to the victim(s) including Current President Tony Tan during such parliament hearing.

    In the end to enable both Dr Tony Tan and Dr Tan Cheng Bock to be ‘eligible’ for coming Presidential election yet again.

  6. Twist n turn n now accusing his brother taking out context! This thing already under the law n is settle SWEE SWEE by PM Lee without cheating anyone of them. What they want is to destroy him n PAP. What type of siblings is this? Very shameful!

  7. WHY DO YOU THINK LKY DIDN’T APPOINT LHL AND HC AS “TRUSTEES AND EXECUTORS” OF HIS LAST WILL?

    BECOS LKY “CAN’T TRUST” THEM AND INDIRECTLY ALSO “CAN’T TRUST THOSE CRONY PAP MINISTERS” AS SUCH TO FULFIL HIS WISH.

  8. Since the fate of the 38 Oxley Road house cannot decided by both parties and it is no longer a private matter as said by the government. I suggest to hold a referendum and let the people of Singapore to decide the fate of the 38 Oxley Road house.

    • Who are we to vote against a person’s will ??
      This is a private family matter and LKY’s will must be respected even though we love to keep it !! Respect is crucial ..

  9. Can never imagine that the late world famous Lee Kuan Yew’s three children would disrespect their parents and disregard their blood relations by going at each other’s throats.

  10. Kit Ling cha bo kong kit Ling huew uh? Suddenly all the MIW / WIW has the real grasp of the issue ??? When the old manis around , no one seems to know or care to discuss about the issue ?? Wow ! So bei Aey sai ! Come let us clap fir you wiw
