PM Lee’s ‘grave concern’ an insult to LKY, abuse of power allegations not addressed

I refer to CNA article, “Grave concerns’ about how Lee Kuan Yew’s last will was prepared: PM Lee”.

LKY was a lawyer himself and he was not of unsound mind months before his death. It is laughable that PM Lee is now implying that LKY had little understanding of how his will was drafted.

If PM Lee had grave concerns, this was never highlighted before, even 2 years after LKY had passed on. PM Lee should have settled his familee issue with his siblings – at his own expense – leegally.

The issue has now been complicated with the involvement of a ministerial committee and other civil servants funded by taxpayers.

Citing all these government committees may lend some critical support to PM Lee but they are essentially PAP-formed committees. Own self cannot check own self.

Are Singaporeans expected to believe that there will be an outcome different from PM Lee’s desired outcome?

The original joint statement by PM Lee’s siblings contains allegations of power abuse. These are the mother of all allegations of power abuse which PM Lee has refused to address.

Coming from the two siblings of a prime minister, the allegations will tarnish his reputation internationally as the news has gone global.
Bloomberg
BBC
Financial Times
The Guardian
Reuters
Asia Times
SCMP
The Star (and other Malaysian media), etc.

In the past, PM Lee did not hesitate to bankrupt political opponents and had even taken legal action on trivial issues such as a blog post by Roy Ngerng.  Why the double standard?

Why raise the issue of “grave concern” only now?    Something is not right.

  • Teo Chee Hean declares he is the Chair of the Ministerial Committee to decide on the “options” for 38 Oxley Rd. Is there a conflict of interest, keeping in mind that Lee Hsien Loong said in his sworn statement:

    “23. I was so struck by the sequence of volunteered statements that on 23 April 2015, 11 days later, I recounted to DPM Teo Chee Hean in my office what had happened at the reading of the Last Will, including what LSF had said”.

    So after your boss tells you he has some “grave concerns”, you set up such a Committee, doesn’t this smacks of bootlicking or even being instructed tacitly by the boss to do something?

    And then there’s Shanmugam. When LHY and LWL suggested there’s conflict of interest with his involvement in the committee, he said, “I am well aware of the rules of conflict, having been in practice for over 22 years. The suggestion that I am in conflict is ridiculous.” So just a word of “ridiculous” from him means all is well? No need to talk further? Whatever the people say can now be shut down?

    He also said, “There are dozens of committees set up .. their composition is not public and they report to the Cabinet.” Yet, Teo Chee Hean says there’s nothing secret about these committees? Why should a Parliament for the people, by the people, be kept in the dark of any cabinet committees, and their terms of reference?

    As many have pointed out, this government is famous for destroying heritage sites for purpose of profits, why interfere with a private property just to preserve it? Moreover, LKY said if the house could not be destroyed, only the family can visit, how is that useful as a heritage site?

    Then, if LHL is so keen on preserving it, or know the government is, why sell it to his brother for 150% of its market value? This smells of another conflict of interest, even criminal equivalent to insider trading knowledge!

    Lee Hsien Loong, and his cronies, are hiding more than they are telling, on a private matter that has now become very public.

    While not directly related to how Singapore will fare it can be argued this is a dark omen, possibly dating back to the time when a barn owl visited the Prime Minister’s office in the Istana.

    In this case there are no sides for us ‘the great unwashed’ to take from as this is a case of one power hungry rich kid fighting off another power hungry rich kid. When immoral people have all the money they want, power is what they crave for, and its a bottomless pit which history has shown us leads us nowhere.

    One side consisting of LHY and LWL is now trying to stand up as the great defenders of morality with their concerns for the fate of Singaporeans under LHL when for over a decade they stayed silent while LHL ran this country into the ground.

    As usual the state media is trying to do damage control attempting to separate the Lee family’s affairs from the government’s ability to run the country.

    Unfortunately they will have a hard time when the same propaganda machine itself worked hard for decades to do the exact opposite in various ways to show the Lee family = Government and vice versa, and this is the view of outsiders of Singapore.

    In past history enemies of nations waited until the ruling class had family disputes and that is when they moved in with measures to directly or indirectly further weaken the country.

    I suggest we let the chips fall as they may, since we have little influence over the outcome, and all this is little better than gossip material.

    We have most influence in our own lives, let us focus our energies on that, like investing in diversified hard assets, as our government’s ability to pay us back our CPF is no longer assured and the world’s going through a chronic recession that has been going on for years.

    They wear white thinking they are angels, pure and self righteous. Only they can ownself check ownself, like the husband and wife team managing the sovereign wealth funds. Lesser mortals are not righteous, they are prone to corruption, conflict of interests, and therefore the need to have check and balance, and transparency.

    When the chief angel raises grave concerns, it must be so. Angels cannot lie.

    Singaporeans are starting to question your authority.

    PM Lee you are the mp for Ang Mo Kio and your town council manager is being investigated for corruption.It is well over a year now and nothing has come of it.You as the mp are answerable to your residents.

    You only were only aware there was no Malay president for a long time after Tan Cheng Bok lost to the PAP backed candidate by a razor margin.So you changed the laws so Tan Cheng Bok cannot be a presidential candidate this time round.

    You have anger China and we’re not invited for the OBOR meeting

    You nor your wife Ho Chin have explained the billions of dollars lost in the investments inGIC and Temask.

    The selling of our national carrier NOL is a shame after 4 year of continual loose.The French company that bought NOL has turned it profitable.

    And now the squabble with your SIBILINGS.IF YOU CANNOT HANDLE FAMILY PROBLEMS HOW YOU FIT TO RUN A COUNTRY?

    In my opinion a citizen of this country I have LOST CONFIDENCE IN YOU AND YOUR PARTY,I am not alone in my opinion.

  • Time will tell:

    Yes, the late LKY himself was a cross-examiner and it’s really ridiculous for the ministers to think that LKY himself cannot discern whom to trust and what to be of the final will. Besides the will, LKY himself had spoken publicly, as well as written in his’ book about demolishing the house. None of the ministers including the d**honourable son spoke up otherwise n parliament when LKY was still alive.

    Is it a WAYANG KULIT so that the Lees can find an excuse to leave the scene(even migrating) handing the SHIT for others(STOOPID IDIOTS but NOT Thaman) before it hits the CeilingFan???

    The best thing to do, if LHL has guts, is to take this to an international court, and prove he is right. I suspect he can only win in his own turf.

    PRAVDA SINKIELAND ARE VERY BUSY THESE DAYS – they are bogged down by giving PAST TENSE multiple (maybe endless repeats of) burials of his wisdom of family and “Eastern values” which Pravda Sinkieland in past have prostrate themselves in worship before the living god emperor of not so distant past. And even his wills construct is now suddenly challenged – knowing that now he can’t comes back to defend himself.

    We wonder why PRAVDA SINKIELAND publishings have not discredited all his memoirs and writing now in circulation in public library – not even the “noble deeds as relevant to the Marxist Conspiracy scam.

    Is there a new twist of cha cha in the play book of 1% truth, 99% lies, fantasy and propaganda of never ending WINDY HAPPY CONTRADICTIONS?

  • Amos: 1 PAP: 0:

    I still cannot understand why LHL would sell the property to his brother (for 150% of its market value) if all along he (and Ho Ching) did not want it demolished. No secret that LSY and LYL want the house demolished. He sold the property then used his position as PM to create a secret committee to control its eventual disposition. This is a blatant abuse of power. In the commercial world, LHL is a crook.

    >Patriot of Temasek

    Speaking of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), it was the Toilet Paper Protocols from the start because it excluded China. A global trade agreement that excludes the world’s biggest manufacturer and home to the biggest bank (ICBC), is a fail from the start.

    The TPP also favored corporations and further destruction of what little is left of worker’s rights and ability for small family run business and startups to function, which was the reason why Trump dumped it in the first place. The faster Singapore ditches the Toilet Paper Protocols the better.

    The One Belt One Road (OBOR) is the real deal arranged by the Eurasian superpowers Russia and China designed to take us out of a war economy perpetuated by the US Petrodollar-Saudi Oil hegemony.

    The OBOR deal will take us back to a real economy based on beneficial peacetime trade deals that benefit all countries without the need for creating new wars and conflicts in the world to fund the military industrial complex, as has been the case for the past 40 years with millions of dead in the Middle East, Asia and Africa from the Western neo-colonial meddling to protect their Petrodollar monopoly.

    If true that Singapore is being sidelined from this OBOR deal is very bad news for our country’s future and we will be like the homeless outsiders looking in at the rest who are enjoying their wealth.

    Well the goondu of a PM was never really a smart one with his free smoke and pork chops jokes back then. Of course he will say all sorts of nonsense and the newspaper will write it in such a way to portray him as a victim, it’s all psychology mah.

    Do you remember his election pledge of with you for you and no one will be left behind? Sounds nice doesn’t it? But sadly, those are just words to be read and forgotten because the PAP definitely isn’t with you and for you nor are they bothered about you being left behind.

    Just look at our retrenched PMETs jobless for god knows how long. Also take a look at the never ending stream of non Singaporeans allowed in to take all the jobs away. Would you consider this with you for you and no one being left behind?

    Doesn’t all this look and feel like opposite of what PAP has said and done?

    Bro, my reading, with the TRUE current world economy failing and a maverick President Trump together with a China having a BONE to pick with LHL…it does NOT look good…TTP the main artery for Singapore is as good as DEAD…OBOR created by China has left Singapore out in the COLD but benefit Malaysia most and they too have a LONG time BONE to settle with us

    so…what does that leave us??? our CPF and Ponzi Scheme??? which seems to be collapsing now with the TWO TTP & OBOR breaking our spinal BONE

    COLLAPSE…is INEVITABLE and the CPF will be too stuck for too LONG and no new added contributors to keep the PYRAMID standing

  • LKY and heritage site:

    The question to be answered is ‘Is the present cabinet, not LKY who built Republic of Singapore, have deep knowledge and wisdom on the importance of a heritage site to exhibit the meeting room and the wax figurines of Singapore respectable leaders?’ Just look at the number of visitors of Old Ford Factory Museum, how many Singaporeans have visited this heritage site and paid the admission fee of $3.
