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

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.”

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…
