A day after the parliamentary debate on the Lee family feud ended with PM Lee categorising the allegations against him as “baseless,” has hit back, reinforcing his claims of abuse of power against his elder brother.

Responding to allusions made in Parliament that it is his sister and himself who have dragged the matter into the public domain, pointed at PM Lee as the one who “dragged” the government into a personal matter.

He added that he and his sister, , continue to feel threatened by the Prime Minister’s “misuse of his position and influence over the Singapore government and its agencies to drive his personal agenda.”

We re-publish his statement in full here:

“The government asks of us, “Are they whistleblowing in a noble effort to save Singapore, or waging a personal vendetta without any care for the damage done to Singapore?”
“We are not making a criticism of the Government of Singapore, as we made clear from the beginning. What we have said is that we are disturbed by the character, conduct, motives and leadership of our brother, . Since ’s passing, we have felt threatened by LHL’s misuse of his position and influence over the Singapore government and its agencies to drive his personal agenda.
“Our private family dispute would have remained a private family dispute, if PM Lee had not used government agencies and a secret ministerial committee to force his way. Sadly, it is who has dragged the government into a personal dispute.
“In Singapore, the PM and his wife should not be above the law. The PM should abide by the same high standards that are expected of even junior civil servants. To show evidence that he has failed to meet these standards, is not to attack the Singapore system, but to preserve it.
“Our father’s legacy is more than bricks and mortar. He made sure that all government officials acted with justice and integrity. He accepted nothing less than incorruptibility, especially for the very top. Singapore can yet live up to his legacy.”
