Li Shengwu, the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew’s grandson, shared a post on Facebook earlier today, recollecting how he was ambushed “with court papers in public” sometime last year.

The 32-year said, “Giving a lecture in Scott Kominer’s brilliant market class at Harvard. When I gave last year’s lecture”, he was served the court papers.

Li also added that he was served the papers after the “Singapore government hired someone” to do so.

After Li was served the papers, lawyers acting on behalf him challenged the order that enabled the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) to personally serve court papers on him despite him being overseas.

However, judge dismissed the application to an order by the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) to personally serve him papers outside Singapore.

The decision was made earlier this year, and it also saw Li having to pay about S$6,000 for proceedings to commence against him.
