“Over the past two years, my legal team has taken advice from David Pannick, a leading expert. I’m grateful for Lord Pannick’s guidance and help, even as he has been in the midst of winning a landmark constitutional in the UK.”

His post was shared by his father, Lee Hsien Yang, and aunt, Lee Wei Ling. Lee Hsien Yang and Lee Wei Ling – the late Lee Kuan Yew’s younger children – are estranged from their elder brother, Lee Hsien Loong.

Netizens responding to Shengwu’s latest post have expressed support for him. Encouraging the 34-year-old, several netizens said that their thoughts and prayers are with Shengwu and his family:
