Jeannette Chong-Aruldoss: Equally sneaky that demolition clause was left out of previous wills

Lawyer Jeannette Chong-Aruldoss

The spotlight seems to be on the question how come the Demolition Clause re-appeared in the last and 7th Will. LHL has insinuated that the Demolition Clause was sneaked in.

But is it not equally a question how come the Demolition Clause was dropped out of the 5th and 6th Will? It can equally be insinuated that the Demolition Clause was sneakily deleted in the 5th and 6th Will; and that it was fortunate that the deletion was spotted and the Demolition Clause reinstated at the 7th Will.

Suggestions of sneakiness is mere personal opinion. It is certainly not unusual at all for anyone to make several wills, each time changing his mind according to his feelings and according to who’s persuasions has he decided to follow.

Regardless of whether one followed the “right” counsel, if he signed the Will voluntarily in compliance with all the formal requirements, the Will is valid and legally binding. Ultimately, the last Will supercedes all earlier ones.

    Whether the Demolition Clause was sneaked in or deleted in any of the Wills was not important.

    LKY was a lawyer himself and he was a person who could not be easily persuaded to change his mind, if he did not want to. Right or wrong, LKY signed on each page of his Last Will.

    Till his last day on 23 March 2015, he was proven to be of sound mind, as claimed by the PAP. Otherwise his MP allowance was a total waste and PAP has some explanation to the voters of Tanjong Pagar.

    The secret Ministerial Committee has no business in this private family matter, for whatever reason. This committee is illegal and waste of tax payers money.

    This committee must be dissolved and all the ministers involved should return to the Ministries where they come from to do whatever that is more meaningful and productive. There are more urgent things to take care, like unemployment, healthcare, Sungei Road hawkers, etc etc.

  • Amos humiliate L*L and PAP:

    LKY initialled the demolition clause in the 7th (and final) will. Must because he foresaw LHL would claim the clause was sneaked in. So what does LHL do next? He questions the mental state of his father when he signed the last will and initialled the clause. Do not be surprise if LHL claims that the last will is a fake.

    Amos and US judge are right. LHL (and PAP) cannot be trusted.

  • Amos: 1 PAP: 0:

    No question the will is valid. Even LHL know this. So LHL decides to “play dirty” (on his own siblings – how low can you get?) and uses his power as PM to set up a Cabinet Committee (composed of his stooges) to get around it.

    LHL is a very sneaky fellow. He cannot be trusted. The only issue now is what PAP MPs going to do about it. Are they prepared to risk getting flushed down the toilet with LHL at the next GE?

    THE ZOOLOGICAL SPECIES ACTING IN CONCERT are immoral to truthful behavior. The demolition of 38 Oxley Road is NOT CONDITIONAL upon the authenticity of the disputed WILL.

    PAST TENSE REPEATED ASSERTED IN PUBLIC SPACES THAT HE WANTED IT TO BE DEMOLISHED UPON HIS DEPARTURE TO TERN SUA.

    If he knew about the squabbles awaiting to haunt and moan his graveyard, he could have moved to one of his Nassim Road palace and have Oxley Road demolished right before his eyes and to his satisfaction.

    If the demolition of 38 Oxley Road is the contention to invalidate the Will, then none of his distributions of other assets including cash/investment will sustain. It must, by definition and operation of the law reverts back to his – posthumously. He can’t come back to sign another will. The property at 38 Oxley Road belongs to him, not LHL and can’t be sold to LHY either.

    It does NOT belong to the State as it is private property unless via foul legislation to compulsorily acquire it – in which case the State compensation must be paid to PAST TENSE. He does not have a banking account in Tern Sua or he cannot received the consideration in exchange of payment from the State in his presumably now all closed banking accounts in
    Sinkieland. The transaction of compulsory acquisition, I believe, cannot be legally completed. It will remain in limbo for time infinity whilst that place rot in disrepute of fight over money grab of his failed “EASTERN VALUE” hypocritical worship and presumptive family values vaporize into fiction. IT IS A NATIONAL DISGRACE not withstanding the suffering of claimant unable to receive the generosity of his will – the sum of all his meager simple lifestyle of PAST TENSE.

    So it bewilders me why State organ invested so much time, money and energy m*sturbating with this intrusive fart into private family quarrels that only add fuels to the ever-escalating tower of prairie fire. It hurt PAST TENSE, LHL, LHY, LWL and degrades this country’s political creed – all losers, no winner.

    In the meantime, the poor peasants is struggling with poverty living from hand to mouth or below that dignity.

    Why is the 70% that stupid to impossibility of not even discovering they are stupid?A large portion of public mind, is justifiably suspicious that LHY foul cry is correct – abuse of State power in meddling with the affairs of private family squabbles.

    I too have compelling apprehension that LHY is correct and if PAST TENSE if he is still alive today but somewhat incapacitated will agree with me!!

  • Pink Noise:

    When the Last Will supercedes all others, then it should be respected without question.But the cheek of it for pinky to set up a Ministerial Committee to block the demolition. It shows that there is motive to use the property for his continual political popularity. Dishourable son.

  • Dinners are just dinners:

    LKY’s preference was for the house to be demolished. The heirs would then stand to earn more. But would this still be the case now?

    Really, if the government and Parliament step in, it is to decide that the house should not be demolished.

    It need not be turned into a museum if a new private trust is carefully crafted and set up by the owner of the house with the blessing of the siblings who are consulted.

    The proposal here is that after LWL’s death or earlier departure from the house, the house could be home to future generations of the same family in accordance with a new trust (controlled by family members and non-family members) set up so that 10-year leases could be granted to the highest bidder from Pool A (close family members surnamed Lee) and Pool B (distant family members who need not be surnamed Lee). Highest bidder from Pool A will get to lease the house. If there are no Pool A bidders, then a bid from amongst Pool B members. There could even be a Pool C of even more distant relatives. The house will remain a private residence in this way indefinitely and will not be turned into a museum – which is why LKY thought it best to demolish it.

    But the house owner, if minded to do this, will want some assurance the government will not overturn the intent of such a private trust that is designed to keep the house as a residence occupied by family member. So there still may have to be some piece of legislation or special gazetting (that it should not be compulsory acquired or turned into a museum or memorial hall).

  • I masturbate often:

    Jeanette is indeed an experienced witty lawyer.
    Theoretically, these could be possibilities :

    1. Clause removal : was it approved by old one?
    2. Clause insertion : was it at the instruction of old one?

    Because dead man dont talk, we will never know the truth.

    But the judge will have the final say.

    Whoever appointed the judge is another different story.

  • The greatest heritage:

    I believe all these claims of heritage value of a house near Orchard Road is just plain misguided.
    So what if very important decisions were made in that house?

    What about the brain where the very important decisions were made?

    That shadowy/secret/nothing secret ministerial committee should have been formed a few years back to declare LKY brain a heritage. Follow Mao. Put his body in display for all future Singaporeans to pay and pay their respect.

    But this ministerial committee is just too late.

  • Father Knows Best !:

    Pinky n the Jinx were looking forward to move into the house after the old man knocked off.

    They got a rude shock n a slap in their faces as the old man gave LWL the exclusive rights to stay there n not them. Also, he as the elder useless son not even a executor of the estate. Remember how the old man suffered in his last days by having to be propped up rather than to be let go. Son doesn’t give a damn what the father wants but father knows best what the son wants.

    Watch the show n all can see the true colors of an arrogant, dishonorable, vengeful, useless and un-natural aristocratic who has no balls to stand on his own. Karma. You reap what you sow.

    @ The greatest heritage

    IT IS THE BIGGEST FOACKING HOAX. Heritage is spelt in the dictionary as H E R I T A G E. Nostalgia is spelt as N O S T A L G I A.

    Any moron can see that nostalgia =/= heritage.

    It is a POLITICAL POPPYCOCK to attempt to deceive public opinion otherwise. 38 Oxyley Road has already been sold to LHY – why is anybody without property rights in that place still looking for imaginary skeletons under the basement in the guise of heritage that was NEVER DISCUSSED BEFORE THE SALE?

    The greatest heritage: I believe all these claims of heritage value of a house near Orchard Road is just plain misguided.

    1. What is material is whether the allegations of insertion without approval can be proven.

    Yes agreed. However with Mr Lu Xian Huang as AG, chances are last will can be over turned as AG is tasked with his employer to determine last will was not made in good faith if AG says so. Lu Xian Huang is put up there after age 60 is NOT for NOTHING!!!! ALL can see why – even though Shan had said what he wished and liked.

    It is precisely this – the last will was legally bidding & this is what made lhl flies off the handle.

    Lhl can’t believe that he who holds absolute power & authority can be tied down by something (laws) lower than him.

    Lhl is mad that he has to follow the laws. It’s totally unfair to him.

    So he instruct his cabinet to think of ways to change the laws to give lhl what he wants.

    Otherwise you would think that someone in csbenit would wakes up one good morning & decodes that there should be a cabinet committee to see in lky old house.
    It’s totally hard to believe that this committee was set up without lhl order.
