According to a HK01, an online publication from Hong Kong, Lee Hsien Yang flew into Hong Kong today with his wife, Mrs Lee Suet Fern. He told reporters that he is in the Special Administrative Region of China to explore with friends, and refused to talk about his ongoing dispute with his brother, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.

In a statement he issued with his sister 10 days ago denouncing his elder brother, Mr Lee said that he feels compelled to leave Singapore for the ‘foreseeable future’.


In speaking to the Straits Times on his decision to leave Singapore, Mr Lee said that it was the only sensible option available to him and his family because they felt closely monitored and feared the use of state organs against them.

“I am a person who spent his life here, who has done public service, contributed in the private sector. This is my home. I wouldn’t do this unless I really felt there is a serious issue. “And I have felt this is not where I can continue to live, the way I have been living in the last two years.” – Lee Hsien Yang
