FamiLEE feud in a nutshell

So apparently, what has been revealed is that,

1) Lee Kuan Yew’s wills were all prepared by the same lawyer, Kwa Kim Li (KKL). Only the last was prepared by a partner of Lee Hsien Yang’s wife, Lee Suet Fern (LSF).

2) LKY had initially decided that Lee Wei Ling (LWL) would receive an additional share of the estate relative to the other children (LWL, LHL, LHY 2:1:1).

3) On two occasions, Lee Hsien Yang discussed the will with Lee Kuan Yew. The content of their discussions led to Lee Kuan Yew’s decision to revert the original share from 2:1:1 to become 1:1:1 (LWL losing out in the process).

4) Lee Hsien Yang and his wife apparently tried to push through with the signing of this last will as quickly as possible. Lee Kuan Yew wanted to contacted the original lawyer (KKL), but Lee Hsien Yang removed KKL from the e-mail chain before telling Lee Kuan Yew that the lawyer (KKL) was un-contactable and was away, and that it would be best to quickly do up the last will in KKL’s absence.

5) KKL later found out about the affair the day after, and was surprised to not have been contacted.

6) Lee Hsien Yang, with his wife’s partners, got the will signed within only 15 minutes (including the time to sign in and out of LKY’s house).

7) The changes to the will was not communicated to Lee Wei Ling, nor Lee Hsien Loong.

8) Lee Wei Ling subsequently got suspicious, as she had been promised by Lee Kuan Yew that she would receive an additional share. She commented that she did not trust Lee Hsien Yang’s wife, and wondered if Lee Hsien Yang “pulled a fast one and played me out”.

9) The discussions regarding the last will apparently gave Lee Kuan Yew the impression that only the share divisions would change. The point to note here is that Lee Kuan Yew actually removed the “demolition clause” from the previous 2 wills. This clause however, was re-inserted into the last will, which took less than 15 minutes for Lee Kuan Yew to sign (raising suspicions that he had not read the will adequately).

10) Lee Hsien Yang wanted to demolish the house almost immediately, but was told by Lee Hsien Loong to hold off since LKY had just passed. LWL expressed that she wanted to continue living in the house, thus, it was decided that the government would explore the options on how the house would be handled only after LWL has ceased living in it.

11) Lee Hsien Loong transferred the house to Lee Hsien Yang under the condition that they would each donate half of its value to charity in order to not create the impression that the family is opposing any potential government acquisition for the sake of money. Lee Hsien Loong alleges that Lee Wei Ling and Lee Hsien Yang were unhappy about this decision.

12) Lee Hsien Loong was deeply suspicious of the events. This includes his suspicion that some of the lawyers who claimed to be involved in creating the will might not actually be involved, and that Lee Hsien Yang’s wife might have a conflict of interest (for bringing in her partners to handle the will). He suspects that these might be planned and played out by Lee Hsien Yang’s wife.

13) Lee Wei Ling and Lee Hsien Yang had stated that Lee Kuan Yew was not prepared to consider any options other than the demolition of the house, but this was based only on the existence of the demolition clause in the last version of the will (which had been removed from the last 2 versions).

What are of significance here is that,

1) Lee Hsien Yang got a larger share after Lee Wei Ling’s share has been reduced.

2) Lee Hsien Yang wanted to get rid of the house as quickly as possible (and possibly liquidate it), and was unhappy that he had to donate half of its value to charity.

3) From the charity matter, it seems like the siblings would get more money out of liquidating the house privately rather than having it be acquired by the government.

4) Add these to the fact that Lee Hsien Yang and Lee Wei Ling are attempting to bail out right now…the matter seems to be oddly complex.

*Updated: Lee Hsien Yang released a statement questioning Lee Hsien Loong’s convictions in LKY’s will to demolish the house.

*My personal take is that this issue is primarily about money, and that Lee Wei Ling is simply being used as a pawn. Now that suspicions have been raised and that the matter has blown up, Lee Hsien Yang is attempting to bail.

  • PAP has the mandate:

    Every side supporters are going to throw their spins into the equation to discredit each other. The fact that is known now that PAP is using the state organs to crush any opposition or alternate view is true, just like operation coldstore and operation spectrum by LKY and more recently against Amos Yee by LHL as well as GCT against Dr Chee. The abuse of human right is a disgrace to LHL, Stinkies and a nation as a whole who choose to do nothing and say nothing to such abuses. Shame on you Stinkies and how you face your children.

    Lhl is telling Singaporeans that lky was mentally incapable of understanding what he read when he put his signature on his own will.

    Or that lky was fooled by his own family?

    Or is it a case of lhl & ho ching not getting what they feel they deserved from lky?

    Anyhow, what is true is that lky did not depart with a happy contented heart.
    In fact for all his might & power he had in his entire political life he probably did not expect to end in such a hapless ending. Especially when it’s the people closest to him that did him in.

  • In all the revelations by the 3 Lees, nothing said LHY was unhappy to donate 50% of the purchase price to charity. Remember, LHL demanded LHY to pay him (LHL) market rate for the house, plus another 50% of the value to charity. In total, LHY paid 150% of market rate of the house to LHL. Thinking with that, LHL would have relinquished control of the property to clear the way for the house to be demolished according to their papa’s wishes, imagine LHY and LWL’s shock to find LHL had then set up a Ministerial Committee to look into how the outcome for house (now owned by LHY). LHL took the money, and then used the state organs to continue control of the property. LHL may say he has nothing to do with the Committee, but are we to believe that as leader to the government, he didn’t know nor approve this move? It’s more likely he mooted it, whatever Teo Chee Hean may now say.

    Making his brother pay 150% of market price for the house exposes LHL’s vindictive and mean spirited nature. He is no nice guy.

    Also remember that bar Wills 5 and 6, the rest of LKY’s wills mention he and his wife want the house demolished after their deaths.

    If LHY and wife were nefarious in the drawing up of the Will, LHL could get the courts to decide the validity of the Will, which he did not do. Moreover, LWL had said in her private conversations with LKY, he told her explicitly he wanted the house demolished.

    Also, are we to believe LKY, a shrewd man, and lucid to the end, put his signature under the very paragraph that mentions demolition of the house without reading or understanding it?

    This is a one-sided article aimed at deceiving those who did not read all the statements due to length. Is half truths still true, or is this fake news?

    据说:
    老爸本来要平分。但老大和老婆要除掉的妹妹的名子。女儿因此和老爸吵架。
    老二的老婆叫公公可怜女儿未嫁无子。公公又改遗嘱。
    老大叫内阁传老爸去meeting: 不可以拆房子。老爸很伤心, 女儿看了火大。所以坚持拆也要公开那部分的遗囑。
    老大在国会以儿子身份要了老爸的心愿。 但他现在说遗嘱有问题。
    弟弟和弟媳感受到被监控,现在忍无可忍。
    因为老爸被叫去meeting, 所以他除掉的老大的名子。房子现在是弟弟的。
    但是老大要弟弟赔他钱还要捐钱。
    弟弟买他那份也捐钱。但现在老大说遗囑不对。
    老二说如果遗嘱有问题, 在遗嘱被认证时, 老大应该提出他的异议。但老大没有。
    在遗嘱认证前, 老二的老婆还发电邮通知内政部长。
    在执行最终遗嘱,老二发电邮告知老大。现在老大说他不知道最终遗嘱的内容。
    老大要除妹妹的名字是因为她有一栋小房子了。老二的老婆对公公说那毕竟是妹妹成长的家, 应该让她住下来。
    老二的老婆是资深律師, 在同行中颇有盛名。不可能有利益冲突的举动。她本身有钱和实力, 不会在乎那房子。

    Probably there is a political ideological conflict between the siblings. LKY left behind a much difficult time to rule nation socially and economically. For the Son to ride on and continue in his fathers ruthless ways and past policies which worked to keep him in power around then(superficial needs were addressed, which also resulted in superficial people), though not tenantable because of our fast changing world, he has to rely on a unifying and authoritative power or figure – his father.

    Siblings, however, agreed with dad to demolish the house in hope of also erasing or diminishing his idolatrous influences past his prime. As said, the son needed something concrete and powerful to remind the people, and his elects, of his godly words.

    (This is commonly practiced by one man rule who references an authoritative book to subdue sheep).

    His elects can visit LKY home and be in awe or electrified(like religious buildings). Subsequent generations too.

    The house of a godlike man whose words are almost eternal is very powerful. Look at Kong Hee. He did wrong but many will still support and defend him.

  • The Evil Greedy Son:

    First goondu try to obfuscate the issues and then try to create doubt. This is basic 101 simple ways of evil greedy bastards but such amateurish tactics could only come from goondu to simpleton dafts.

    The will has gone through probate. Why didn’t goondu raise any questions during that time?
    LKY himself said openly he wanted the house demolished. What is so difficult to understand? Goondo said he too “respects” old man’s wish, why sought revenge and try to do otherwise later?
    Why ask LHY to pay much more than market rate for goondu share, and why force him to donate? As a vindictive punishment to his younger brother?
    Such tactics are very petty and evil.

    Even as this saga continues, the abuse of power continues.
    Same tactic was used on Dr Chee many years ago, with Pap minions coming out one by one to condemn him. The same thing happened to lawyer Deng Liang Hong as well, even betrayed by his PAP friends. History now returns vividly. Ironically this time round the same tactic is used on his siblings.
    Self interest, self preservation and abused of power is very evident.

  • Rabble-rouserr:

    The secrets of the political elites & the ultra-rich are indeed complex, complicated & fairly devious. In fact, there were even more twist & conniving plots than a Taiwanese drama serial. Who would know that LKY’s children have so much devious intentions & underhanded motives regarding a singular asset ie. 38 Oxley Road. The posturing among the 3 siblings for a greater share of 38 Oxley Road is humiliating considering how wealthy all 3 are; the beneficiaries of an exclusive political & economic system designed by LKY who regard only those who are politically connected, their cronies & those who are related by bloodlines as part of the ‘Natural Aristocrat’ class. Most of us common folks can only look in awe & envy at their immunity from S’pore’s economic restructuring & downturn which affect many of us but never them. Many of us had to fight for economic survival unlike them who had the lap of luxury dropped upon them. LKY even had a term for such class of people ie. ‘DIGITS’ & even suggested how SPURS are necessary to extract more performance out of DIGITS. How do we feel for them?
    The proliferation of a number of LKY wills over time also leads one to suspect that LKY was already suffering from some form of mild dementia & was extremely susceptible to his children’s urging to amend his will according to his mood swings & his emotions of the day. The sudden shift from defacto LKY will lawyers’ Lee & Lee whose lawyer Kwa Kim Li (related to aunt Kwa Geok Choo aka Mrs LKY) is also a maternal cousin of the Lee siblings to Morgan Lewis Stamford LLC which is LHY’s wife legal firm is questionable. None of the 3 Lee siblings come out as credible & honest, if nothing, all of them didn’t even considered S’poreans as part of the equation when LWL/LHY made their public statements.
    If nothing, this episode reflects badly on LKY’s children in the way they squabble & quarrel over 38 Oxley Road. Jousting over 38 Oxley Road only show their unbridled greed, the use of power ‘organs of the state’ to get what one sibling wanted & the constant political maneuvering over the final LKY draft between siblings will only creates massive contradictions & a sense of doubt. But one thing is true, S’pore is doomed on the sense that political energies will be focused on this pyrrhic battle while the economy continues to sink further into the abyss.

  • Total Stupidity Inc.®:

    The face-off between the Ministerial committee and LHY is not only disingenuous, crafty but also poses perilous aftermaths. If it is not properly grounded, then public and private property are juxtaposed to imply that the property in question is under the control of the state due to public interest. In contemporary terminology, the term public property is an obfuscation of what should be called state property. Private property is owned and controlled by private individuals. One doesn’t need to be a President’s Scholar to realize that this fight is clearly an injustice. An abuse of Governmental powers against a private individual.

    “What we are seeing right now is a situation where many developers are going after sites, but at the same time they are also blighted with the problem of moving the sales at a higher price,” said JLL Singapore capital markets director Tan Hong Boon.

    DIDN’T TAN HONG BOON WARNED THAT SALES PRICE WON’T MOVE HIGHER and therefore property prices won’t climb higher by definition?

    that is why sinkie land getting more & more congested with more and more buildings, yet costs have still not come down much. why leh ?
