“My wife was never Lee Kuan Yew’s lawyer,” Mr Lee Hsien Yang asserted in his Facebook. His clarification on the role his wife, Mrs Lee Suet Fern, came after the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) said it has referred a case of possible professional misconduct involving Mrs Lee.


Mr Lee said in his Facebook post that his father, Mr Lee Kuan Yew’s (LKY) private will was executed some 5 years ago, and that LKY informed his entire family and his lawyers at Lee & Lee when he completed his will and kept his will at Lee & Lee.

Mr Lee asserted that “this was his re-signing of his 2011 will in which Minister Shanmugam was involved.”

Mr Lee further revealed that Lee & Lee had been his father’s lawyers for all his wills since his first will in 1995, and that LKY’s first will was drafted by his wife, Kwa Geok Choo, who was then the principal beneficiary under LKY’s will.

“No one has complained from the outset on the process and circumstances of our father’s signing his final will – not Lee Kuan Yew, not his estate which stands in his shoes after his death, not any of the beneficiaries, including Lee Hsien Loong, who was advised by Lucien Wong, now AG,” Mr Lee said.

Adding: “The will was proven in court in 2015 with no issues raised; all parties have acted in accordance with the will since then.”

Mr Lee questioned what public interest is being served by AGC here, and why public resources were wasted on a private matter after all this time.

“Why is AGC rushing this case in 2019 when the facts were known by all parties for years?,” he asked. Adding: “AGC’s assertion that my wife refused to respond is untrue. AGC should release the full correspondence.”


On Sunday evening, Dr Lee Wei Ling revealed that the AGC have filed a 500-page long complaint against her younger brother Lee Hsien Yang’s wife, Suet Fern, for preparing her father, Founding Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew’s will.
