Dr Lee Wei Ling has defended her younger brother, Lee Hsien Yang, against allegations Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong made in Parliament, this week, that his brother approached him and wanted in on his offer to sell 38 Oxley Road to Dr Lee for $1.00.

She reiterated that neither she nor Lee Hsien Yang planned to profit from plans made for 38 Oxley Road before rebutting another claim made by her elder brother that the late Lee Kuan Yew preferred to sell their family home and donate the proceeds to charity:

“When Hsien Loong offered to sell Oxley to me for SD$1.00, I immediately asked Hsien Yang to be part of the deal with me. I have neither the time, nor the inclination to deal with the house on my own. Hsien Yang did not ask to join me in purchasing the house for $1. Also, Hsien Yang had long planned to demolished the house when I no longer need it & convert it into a public garden. Neither of us were planning to profit from the deal.
“As for the donation to charity, Papa was very clear in his mind, he & Mama had paid for the property at the full financial value when they bought it, there was there for no need to donate to charity any money related to transactions on Oxley.”
