Singapore – The daughter-in-law of the late founding Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew disagrees with the report of a Disciplinary Tribunal that looked into her role in the preparation and execution of his last will.

Mrs Lee Suet Fern, in a response released by her husband, Mr Lee Hsien Yang, is urging the public to make their “own independent conclusions” on the matter.

The two-man tribunal’s findings were published in newspapers and online on Sunday (Feb 23).
