PMO responds to allegations by PM Lee’s siblings

The Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) has issued a statement in response to the allegations made against PM Lee Hsien Loong by his siblings yesterday morning (14th June).

PM Lee’s sister, Dr Lee Wei Ling and youngest brother Lee Hsien Yang had, among other things, said that they are “disturbed by the character, conduct, motives and leadership” of their elder brother. [ LINK ]

PMO’s statement reproduced verbatim below:

I refer to the statement issued by Dr Lee Wei Ling and Mr Lee Hsien Yang earlier today, and specifically the references to an internal Ministerial Committee that was set up by Cabinet.

The Committee was set up to consider the options for 38 Oxley Road (the “House”), and the implications of those options. These included looking into various aspects, including the historical and heritage significance of the House, as well as to consider Mr Lee Kuan Yew’s thinking and wishes in relation to the House.

The Prime Minister has not been involved in Cabinet’s discussions concerning this Committee. As he had previously stated, he has recused himself from all Government decisions concerning the House.

As part of its work, the Committee sought the views of Mr Lee Kuan Yew’s children, Mr Lee Hsien Loong, Dr Lee Wei Ling and Mr Lee Hsien Yang, to ask if they wished to say anything about Mr Lee’s thinking in respect of the House, beyond what has already been stated in public. Mr Lee Hsien Loong’s views were sought in his personal capacity, given his position as Mr Lee Kuan Yew’s eldest son and his interest as a beneficiary of the estate.

The Committee has made clear to Dr Lee Wei Ling and Mr Lee Hsien Yang (in response to a query from them) that the Government has no intention of doing anything with the House as long as Dr Lee Wei Ling continues to reside there. The Committee will be listing out the different options with regard to the House and the implications. This will help a future Government when a decision needs to be taken about the House.

Dr Lee Wei Ling and Mr Lee Hsien Yang have also referred to questions that have been asked about Mr Lee Kuan Yew’s last will (the “Last Will”). In the course of its work, the Committee received representations from Mr Lee Hsien Loong on various facts and circumstances in relation to how Mr Lee’s Last Will was prepared. The Committee has asked Dr Lee Wei Ling and Mr Lee Hsien Yang some further questions about how the Last Will was prepared, and the role that Mrs Lee Suet Fern and lawyers from her legal firm played in preparing the Last Will. The Committee has also invited Dr Lee Wei Ling and Mr Lee Hsien Yang to put their response by way of Statutory Declaration, as Mr Lee Hsien Loong had done. Dr Lee Wei Ling and Mr Lee Hsien Yang have not responded to-date, and have indicated that if they respond at all, they will only be able to reply at the earliest by the end of June.

  • In this he-said, she-said saga, whatever the truth might be, it is now a glaring fact that Lee Hsien Loong made his personal lawyer an Attorney-General in Jan 2017, according to his siblings’ statement. This smacks of cronyism, favouritism and back door deals. The PM is the last person to be preaching on meritocracy.

  • Say you say me:

    Internal Ministerial Committee that was set up by Cabinet? At whose initiative that the cabinet decides so?
    At the end of the day, despite having recused himself from all Government decisions concerning the House, the Committee received representations from Mr Lee Hsien Loong on various facts and circumstances in relation to how Mr Lee’s Last Will was prepared. Should it not be the case to inform the committee that he has recused himself from all decisions concerning the house and therefore inappropriate to give any statement?

  • In My Opinion:

    The PM stands on the cusp of being written-off if he does not respect the dying wish of his own father who had brought him up on the day that he was born and made him what he is today. He must show his unstinting support and filial gratitude towards his father or he is nothing,despite his accumulation of immense wealth and power. What good is a man who acquires all the power and wealth but loses his soul or moral values? What is at stake here is also the respect and dignity that the state must give to the founding father of modern Singapore. What respect can LKY gain from the people of Singapore if his own son, the PM, does not respect his dying wish, more so when he had contributed so much to the country.

    By not respecting the wish of his father, LHL will become the son that no parents in the world would want to have. Academic achievement is nothing if it is done at the expense of filial gratitude. The PM will lose his moral authority if he continues to pursue his foolish hidden agenda of not demolishing the house. Is there not a single minister who dares to step forward and tell the PM that he is wrong?
    Are we allowing moral values to degenerate to a despicable level?

    I must say that my respect for the PM has segued to an incredibly low level since the revelation of this incident and others will follow if the PM does not take the steps to rectify what is clearly a blatant breach of moral values i.e. of not honoring the simple, reasonable and heartfelt wish of his father.

    The father has already stated very clearly in his will that the house be demolished once the daughter no lomger stays in there. If not then it shall not be open to the public except for his future generations. Why can’t simple instructions be followed but a committee has to be set up to consider options? All cannot understand simple ang moh and need to go back to primary school is it?

    3 issues.
    1. They claimed they were threatened to keep quiet.
    2. Hsien Yang felt they were monitored by the state organs.
    3. They want to look into how the will was prepared by Hsien Yang’s wife.

    LKY is a lawyer and he doesn’t know his will? Absurd isn’t it. Why the need now to look into how the will was prepared? Next, will they prove that he was senile when he sign the will. Could this be a precedent to question all wills in existence. This is absurdity of the highest degree.
    Now we understand what the meaning of “fix” is all really about.
    Is he spending his time fixing those that cross his path?

And why did the President not question the appointment of the PM’s personal lawyer as the AG when he approved the appointment?. And did he question the appointment of the man who sunk NOL when he was nominated as CEO of SPH? Now, can all Singaporeans understand the concerns of LHY and LWL when they talked about checks and balances? And the PAP govt call it meritocracy. Bullshit! And now the personal lawyer aka AG says that Wee Kim Wee was an elected president. Cad any Singaporean who had voted for Wee Kim Wee as president, please step forward and be counted. Let us now hear what the AG has to say when the High Court debates on whether Wee KIm Wee was an elected president. And what about the Min of Law? Has he lost his voice in the midst of all these controversies? Where are the checks and balances?

    Meritocracy or Cronyism? The people of Singapore must decide. The dumb 70% has better beware.

  • Boh Kia See:

    I thought the clown PM considers this a private matter and was disappointed to have it made public.

    So why is he using the PMO–a tax payer funded resource to handle his private situation? Does that not give credence to what his brother and sister said about him.

    This practice of using tax payer funded resources for private political purposes is a habit for this clown PM. Just review Roy Ngeng’s case.

    So I sincerely believe that this clown and the rest of the PAP should go if Singapore is going to have a chance of survival. Our neighbours are developing fast while Singapore is living on past glory still thinking it has the edge in teaching other countries.

    In fact Singapore has nothing to boast about. Most of its talents are bought from overseas. So why should China make use of Singapore’s so called “expertise” when they comprise of Indians from India. There don’t seem to be any natives with up to date expertise because the clown government have sidelined them.

    Time to wake up and take drastic action–if not for your sake at least for your children’s future.

    1) Why was the setting up of a public committee never made public previously and only made public when revealed by the siblings ?
    2) If a committee is headed by a Minister, why is this public committee questioning how LKY’s will was formalised ?
    3) How can a public committee set up by a current Minister rule over the last wishes in LKY’s will by considering other options ?
    4) Is it not nonsensical that the last wishes of LKY’s will as well as the copyright exercised by the trustees of LKY’s require the prior approval of the Government as if all of LKY’s assets belongs to the Government ?
    5) Just because LHL is not made an executor of LKY’s will, can LHL as PM now exert the final say in the last wishes of LKY ? Even if the PM says he is recused from all such related decisions, which Minister will decide or dare act on his own accord without seeking prior approval from the PM of the PM’s Department ?

    Would the PM or any Minister dare to offer any answers to the above questions ?

But then, even just before LKY’s last hospitalization, PM’s office had repeatedly assured Singapore that he was still “lucid” in mind, despite physical weakness.

    I am also disappointing. The ancient tactic is being employed here: reduce the credibility of an opponent, in this case: Yang’s wife, whose role was the will writer. And, the other brother wants to quit. Don’t they watch Korean dramas? Except the repetitive and psycho plot of two sisters fighting over a man, these dramas have better conversations than these two brothers and their sister.

    Wei Ling’s American friend in Scotland is ignorant. It is not a family quarrel. The house held meetings that built the power of the PAP. In a sense, it is of some historical significance. On the other hand, just like we sometimes do not welcome strangers to our home, both the late Mr and Mrs Lee did not want others to view their way of life. Their will, however, are subject to Mr Lee’s own policy. If it is in the interest of the nation, an individual’s private view and desire do not matter. They should be sacrificed. If we were to have a referendum on this issue, 70% would vote to keep the house – because it is of the national interest; and 30% would vote to tear down the house – because one’s private will should be respected.

    So far, brothers and sister and nephew are smearing one another. Could we take have a good debate, please?

Cry out far, in national interest, he should get his wife resign from the huge conglomorate funded by taxpayer’s money and be a normal good housewife, just like the late Mrs. LKY ? Can he not even do that since this has been a point of discontend for so many years. It is common knowledge, not only ordinary citizen fear PM Lee, they fear his wife even more. Now, if his siblings are also feared, that says something bigger, something more serious and something more worrying. As ordinary citizen, we will never know the truth, never unless LKY turn in his grave.. We fear not only his siblings lost confidence, the people of Singapore had already lost confidence. The only difference is, the people as ordinary citizen, fear so much that they kept quiet unlike the sibligns, they had enough of PM Lee, so do the people of Singpaore.

    At a stoke of his pen, he decided the next President should be Malay. At a stoke of his pen, he decided to set up a committee, paid by people’s money, to look into his falmily matter which he did not in the first place, question in court.. What else he cannot do ? I cannot think of one thing which he cannot possoibly do.

    The allegations are made by the siblings against PM Lee in his private capacity, he should if at all, defend or refute by his own personal capacity, not through PMO’s office which is funded and paid by government. Has he not got enough $$$ to fight his own personal battle ? Is this not a clear sign of abuse ??

    LKY’s legacy are everywhere in this little island, is there a need to preserve the oxley road residence ?? The residence had caused so much inconvenience in and around that area for more than half a century and it is time to free the area with free access ? How much money are we going to spend to keep the residence as a “Historical tourist site “?? The money can be better spent to help the poor..

    PM should wake up to reality and do the right thing rather than using the entire government machine to fight his personal battle at the costs of the nation.
