“This is a very sad episode of Singapore history,” said a certain Adrian He. “That the dishonourable son would resort to such action to silence his critics and opponents, and worst of all defying the wishes of his father and disrespecting his will.”

Many were appalled that the “Government suggested the late LKY to not be of sound mind when he signed the will.” They also reiterated that Mr Lee Kuan Yew had been quite clear on wanting the house on 38 Oxley Road demolished.
