Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s own younger brother, Lee Hsien Yang, is the first to give to blogger Leong Sze Hian’s defence fund as Leong prepares to defend himself in legal proceedings brought on by PM Lee.

Earlier, PM Lee commenced legal proceedings against Leong for defamation after the latter shared an article on his Facebook page that alleged that the head of government helped launder 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) funds.

Leong, who initially said that he was “bewildered” by PM Lee’s actions said today that he is fighting the claims against him in court. Besides filing a defence, Leong is also filing a counterclaim against PM Lee for “abusing the process of the court in bringing the claim against me.”

Leong has since revealed to The Independent Singapore that individuals have begun to crowdfund for his Defence Fund and that late founding PM Lee Kuan Yew’s youngest son Lee Hsien Yang was the first to give during the fundraising efforts:

Leong revealed to this publication that “people have started to crowdfund for my Defence Fund. Lee Hsien Yang sent me a message that he has transferred – lo and behold he is the first one to do so into my account!”

The authorities in Singapore are also suing Lee Hsien Yang’s son Li Shengwu over a private “friends-only” Facebook post.

Mr Leong is hoping to raise at least $10,000 for his defence fund. You may contribute through the following channels:
