Dr Chee: It’s what we still don’t know that should scare us

THE INFORMATION THAT has emerged from the imbroglio between PM Lee Hsien Loong, on the one side, and Dr Lee Wei Ling and Mr Lee Hsien Yang, on the other, have been grist for the gossip mill.

And yet, if all that we took away from this were juicy titbits of palace intrigue, we would have failed as a society.

The knock-down, drag-out fight provided glimpses of the inner workings of the government that ordinary Singaporeans have long whispered but not dared to publicly utter. For keen observers of Singapore’s politics, these revelations were just confirmations of their worst suspicions about the way Mr Lee Hsien Loong and colleagues run the business of Singapore.

Take, for example, the part played by the PM’s wife, Ms Ho Ching. Her designation as “contact representative” for the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) to retrieve, without permission, the late Lee Kuan Yew’s possessions at 38 Oxley Road was, according to Mr Lee Hsien Yang, “deeply troubling” because Ms Ho held no official position in the Office.

Ms Ho admitted that, indeed, she had “arranged to do so through the PMO” (posted as a comment in Lee Hsien Tang’s FB post here). Was she authorised to act on behalf of the PMO? If yes, who gave that authorisation? Or did she simply assume the role by virtue of her being the PM’s wife? What does the PM say about this? Importantly, what are the rules governing non-officers who claim authority on behalf of the PMO?

This matter should make Singaporeans sit up and pay attention. More than Ms Ho pleading her case as the dutiful, if somewhat meddlesome, daughter-in-law, her behaviour speaks to a far bigger and much more serious issue of conflict of interest. As Dr Lee Wei Ling and Mr Lee Hsien Yang point out: “While Ho Ching holds no elected or official position in government, her influence is pervasive, and extends well beyond her job purview.”

This, of course, has huge implications for her role as chief executive of Temasek Holdings, a sovereign wealth fund wholly owned by the Ministry of Finance (MOF). PM Lee tried to defuse this mother-of-all conflict of interest by explaining that as CEO, his wife reports to Temasek’s Board and “answers to its shareholder, the Ministry of Finance”.

The elephant in the room is, of course, that the MOF ultimately reports to the PM. How this assuages concerns of conflict of interest is anyone’s guess.

Another contentious issue that arose from the Lee altercation is the appointment of Mr Lucien Wong as Attorney-General (AG). Unbeknownst to the public, Mr Wong was PM Lee’s personal lawyer before his appointment to public office.

When the appointment was first announced in November 2016, the political chatter was that Mr Wong, having no experience in criminal law or legal work at the State level, was singularly unsuited for the position of top prosecutor and government legal adviser in the country.

Even more puzzling: Mr Wong was given the position at age 63 when his predecessor, Mr V K Rajah, was retired at 60.

The mystery would not have been cleared up had it not been for the Oxley explosion. The public was not told that Mr Wong was Mr Lee Hsien Loong’s lawyer until the PM’s siblings brought the matter to the fore.

It is such kind of non-transparent, behind-the-scenes happenings that have led many Singaporeans to be suspicious of the PAP’s motives. The party has, through anti-democratic machinations, maintained its continuous armlock on the nation for more than half-a-century. As a result, the lines between party and state, private and public resources have been blurred, if not altogether erased. Ministers feel entitled not just to their positions but also their more-than-princely salaries. By the way, the salary amounts are kept secret – an arrangement that would not be countenanced in any democratic society.

Non-transparency and good governance are, in the best of times, sworn enemies. Given the looming socio-economic challenges, good and effective governance is what is required if we are going to have any chance of surmounting these obstacles and forging ahead.

In addressing the public’s ire during the Lee dispute, DPM Tharman Shanmugaratnam tried his darnedest to put on a sunny spin. “Have confidence, folks,” he reassured. In what? To have confidence, one needs trust. To have trust, one needs transparency – an asset that is in dangerously short supply in Singapore.

The saga over Oxley has thrown up some important revelations. But it’s not what we know that should scare us – it’s what we still don’t.

    Hri Kumar is waiting at the sidelines as a civil serpent but yet can cast aspersions on race in Tan Cheng bock vs govt!

    Civil servants in the days of good governance will be brought to task for making such remarks which has nothing to do with the contention on who should be counted as 1st EP!

    So as minister looking after civil serpents, what can teo ch do to check his erstwhile asst ag? What more can head of civil service do?

    Sinkiland is in need of a whole barrel of transparency, not pork barrel politics n governance?

  • I debunk the Chee:

    Dr Chee

    What you said makes a lot of sense and pertinent.
    However, Singapore is Uniquely Singapore as it is famous for.

    Sgreans are Different than western intellectuals.

    Singaporeans top in the world in maths and science but this is by brute regurgitation because it’s hardly ever heard of that a native Singaporean scholar invented top in the world engineering inventions.

    So, Singaporeans are different from western intellectuals.

    Everything you said makes sense AND SINGAPOREANS DO NOT BOTHER ABOUT EVERYTHING YOU SAID.

    If they did, they would have found ways to let this be known.

    There is Facebook, social media, WhatsApp, Hong Lim .

    Singaporeans give no two hoots about EVERYTHING pertinent you highlighted.

    It’s a hopeless case.

    Your BB BE experience was good for you for your first try after a long ban. But that experience has told you clearly why it is a hopeless case.

    Humans dun and cannot change drastically.

    The existing adults will remain so till they lie on their graves.
    Only the unborn has a chance of becoming world class intellectuals with real intellectualism.

    I have never been debunked because facts cannot be debunked .

    THERE ARE HUGE CONFLICTS OF INTEREST EVERYWHERE despite PAPpys denial. A huge part of the proceeds from BTO public housing sales goes back to Singapore Land Authority – that means that buyers of BTOs paid for the land which their apartments collectively shared BUT LAND IS NOT MENTIONED as part of the purchase consideration paid for in our HDB lease contract. The public mind is entitled to think public housing is a huge profit business for PAPpys despite frequently claims to its CONTRARY CLAIM of subsidies totally unsubstantiated.

    CPF IS ANOTHER CONFLICT OF INTEREST VIOLATION – the fiduciary law requires whoever takes hold of our CPF is duty-bound by law to payout every cent to CPF rightful owners less management costs/fees. The CPF/SGSS framework is just an artificial skeleton to conceal CPF earnings taken from us behind a wall of obscurity and public confusion of reality. WHERE ELSE ON EARTH is our superannuation (CPF) earnings of over 6% annually placed in absolute blind trust of a sovereign by its rightful owners got paid at an ADMINISTRATIVELY-DECIDED rate of return of mere 2.5%?

    WHAT HAPPENED TO THE REST OF THE UNACCOUNTED MONEY over the decades? It can’t be evaporated to nothing, right??

    After 55, the CPF is private property. How can that be imprisoned to mortality? It is in statutory and common law that enforced imprisoned superannuation (CPF) money is THEFT OF PRIVATE PROPERTY – this is worst than conflict of interest violations. CPF owners are losing money on their imprisoned money to mortality in that conflict of interest violation of fiduciary law command I illuminated above!

    Meantime, the peasants suffers yet 70% are stupid to know they are stupid and some among this lot is even too stupid to discover they are stupid – seduced by another SCAM of asset enhancement politics to suck in more of their CPF into public housing property which declines zero values on LEASE EXPIRY BUT CLEVERLY SILENT ON THE QUESTION OF LAND OWNERSHIP!!

    IT IS SCAM ON TOP OF SCAM ON TOP OF MOTHER OF ALL SCAMS.

  • Protest Against Power-abuser:

    Allow me to sidetrack a bit. Have you guys seen a sg flag turned upside down being displayed on a pole and being erected along the street by the foreign workers? It should for the upcoming nat’l day.

    I ask, which native citizen still do not know how our flag look like? Singaporeans faced the sg flag since the age of 7 every schoolday’s morning or evening to sing our nat’l anthem, how could any of us got it wrong? So it must be work of new citizens or the foreigner-born, no?

    Actually, rightly, the upside down flag says it all. Our country is upside down now under the present LEEderSHIT. Together, the G and the huge number of foreigners are slowing but surely turning sg upside down.

    SDP, please remember what lky wrote in his book:
    “There will come a time when eventually the public will say, look, let’s try the other side, either because the PAP has declined in quality or the opposition has put up a team which is equal to the PAP and they say, let’s try the other side.”

    “That day will come,” he said.

    Please persevere, SDP. That day will come when we see SDP in parliament. But first, hope to see you guys in Hong Lim Park on Saturday.

    Without a doubt, the Lee family saga has exposed the hypocrisy of LHL and Ho Ching. They were caught “dirty”. To make matters worse, LHL use Parliament as a kanga**oo court to clear himself and his scheming wife. The “take away” from the saga is that LHL and PAP cannot be trusted.

  • Rabble-rouser:

    @ Dr Chee:
    Too many questions, no answers given! Those who have the answers frankly refused to answer! And that is the dilemma facing all S’poreans who are politically weak & frankly “Bo-chap”. The electorate had handed over their fate to the political system [status quo] & is therefore, hapless & impotent to the ongoings of the nation. S’poreans have sold their soul to the D**** & there is no way back to buy back the soul until 2020. It is called the No-Way Out Process.
    Frankly, S’pore has a cult-personality political system (sic: North Korea). But since LKY’s death in 2015, the system is imploding with the death of the cult figure! The thread to PAP’s existence had been cut with LKY’s death. The party is drifting aimlessly. Look at recent developments; Trump refusing to ratify the TPPA; China excluding S’pore’s PM LHL from OBOR gathering of nations; the Lee siblings fighting among themselves – These are signs of an imploding situation! The Geopolitical aspect (TPPA, OBOR) is out of S’pore hands; the infighting among siblings points to a dysfunctional political elite.
    What LWL/LHY had revealed is the immense conflicts of interest within the political system – the so-called abuse of power! You see, with the death of LKY, 38 Oxley Road is the only [tangible] thread left to link PAP’s political legitimacy to the LKY legacy. Without 38 Oxley Road, the present-day PAP politicians have to work very hard to earn their keep – can they do it? Care to express your opinion!
    Listen to the 2 day Parly hearing, one would get the vibes that many within Parly are desperately fighting to hold on to the coattails of the late LKY – hence supporting the 38 Oxley Road non-demolition issue & heritage listing.
    The sad fact is that the LKY cult is fading away from collective memory – a scant 2 years after his death. No matter how hard the PAP tries to revive the LKY heritage – the ‘feel-good’ effect had already faded from the S’pore psyche.
    S’poreans are now confronted with present-day harsh reality – the high cost of living; the difficult circumstances where locals have to compete unfairly against foreigners; most of all, the loss of national identity where being S’pore citizens meant very little in the real context – a liability instead of being an asset. No wonder, many S’poreans of emigration capability are migrating away from S’pore where the S’pore passport is an asset overseas. Those who remained in S’pore are either trapped by circumstance or are members of the crony economy. Will the last one out please switch off the lights!

  • Ah Fah:

    LHY stated at the outset that he was a novice and this is evident in his honest mistake about the date when HC ‘helped herself’ to LKY’s papers.

    HC’s reply is, however, less straightforward.

    Instead of being sympathetic to LHY’s annoyance, she corrected him and said the reference to the date was wrong. Wow…

    Next, she put words in LHY’s mouth. She said there were no reasons for her to ‘rummage’ LKY’s things.

    If LHY’s date was not correct, when did it happen? Well, she did the ‘dogsbody work’ when LHY and his wife were in Japan or somewhere and LWL was grieving in Oxley.

    After discovering some interesting items, she related them to her Prime Minister husband, who ‘immediately knew its significance, and identified 4 items that he thought it would be useful to lend to NHB’. She then arranged the contact with NHB through the Prime Minister’s Office.

    What is truly amazing – in her response on FB to LHY’s angry complaints – is that she does not think she was wrong; rather, she thinks she was doing the right thing. Wow x 3!

    HC also claimed that LHY had agreed that ‘NHB to come and pick what they wanted’. Really? This sloppy confirmation of LHY does not seem to match his seriousness of being the executor of the Estate.

    HC then painted the picture of her ‘working with maids’ in the basement and LHY and his wife and LWL knew about her activities in the house. In other words, they acknowledged her involvement. Now, this is crafty. The fact – that I gave my key to my neighbour to look after my flat when I was overseas and allowed her to work with my maid in my kitchen – does not mean she could tell NHB to come and take my things. Even afterwards what she told me in emails would not justify her action.

    In closing, she again added words to LHY’s mouth. She told him not to be ‘upset’ but to remember what papa and mama would want him to do. OMG! She treated him like a crying baby.

    After reading her post on FB, I was totally stunned.

  • Dr Tan Tai Wei:

    State media and Ministers wanted us to feel re-assured that things have calmed down, the Siblings having agreed to resolve things “privately” after the Parliamentary proceedings. But that seems to gloss over an apparent enhancing of the conflict by LHY and sis’ rejoinder to Parliament. LHY told us of a big brother who lost his temper at the reading of papa’s will so soon after the funeral (some sort of grieving?), and that only over the will to let sis stay on in that house. Subsequently, big brother wouldn’t speak with young siblings over some two years, despite their repeated attempts to reach him. Finally, they got an officious response – sort of “Speak to my lawyer”. Now, notice how the behavior, if true, would conflict and belie PM’s account and show in Parliament, especially of being aggrieved (he even wept) by his inability, owing to siblings’ preferring to quarrel, to do what papa had wanted, that he should take care of young brother and sister should papa have to die fighting for Singapore. Now, which account of PM’s character and temperament should Singaporeans take, and how should this affect the trust Tharman, for instance, want them to continue to give his governance?
    Another example to show the dispute is still hanging is this. PM insinuated that LHY was greedy for money when he wanted a share of the house when PM offered to sell to sis for $1. But sis countered, explaining that it was she who wanted LHY in, because she was too busy and did not know enough to do papa’s wish to demolish the house. Quite a big issue to be resolved in private!

You don’t count your blessing, never mind but yet you dare to interfere. Don’t you realixe that once plp yeo boasted to the press the little prince has to wait for him, plp supremo to his royal papa, at the hotel lobby is now the Emperor with full power and control of the royal network of plps lncluding the old royal plps now pledging undying plployalty to him and the once plp supremo to papa is now shrunk into his shell. You Dr Chee unfortunately has no shell to hide and speak thru aperture only plps can recognize which aperture.
    Back to relevance. See Emperor Ii and Queen known to the people as finger upping glorilla are laws like his dead royal papa. The new royal line does not include the old prince and princess and they are at royal mercu and wimpses.
    So Dr Chee now what dead royal papa said is Law now paaed over to the new royal family. Ss how the new royal family anf the easily transferred farm of plps spoke in the royal Court. The only difference is the reborn plps are hungrier, greedier and more ruthleds thsn the royal preferred foreign import as recentlh decree delivered to the daft people who kpkb of no job and job all taken by foreign import.
    All are expectef then and now the people are waiting to see whether the allegation is true or not and will pents drop and to see how the plp ectraordinarire relevation of siblings pulling down plot is true or false and whether whose pents drop, could it be Woody chewed over by royal or exroyal

At first I was grateful that ST provided such a great coverage, however, I was shocked when I noticed ST edited (2:32:30) by omission, a split second of the audio, to distort CSJ’s message.

    CSJ’s original message: “I don’t want to be just another MP who just writes letters for you during the meet-the-people session.”

    Edited by omission: “I want to be just another MP who just writes letters for you during the meet-the-people session.”

    Notice the word “don’t” was edited out. WTF ST!!!

    So, the above proved beyond a doubt why the Straits Times is ranked 153rd in the World Press Freedom Index, and no surprise again why Mr Murali won the BB by-election.

  • How PAP cheats:

    How they cheat.

    So Murali won:

    You recall that embarrassing hilariously infantile chute patten speech by Sim Ann in GE2015? Or Murali’s opening rally speech at the BB BE that delved at length about his moustache that even the PAP felt they had to censor and to doctor in order to hide the embarrassing parts from the public?

    I don’t know if you can still find the video of that speech on YouTube. The PAP might have removed it for good. If you can find it, you will notice that the embarrassing parts have been doctored and made inaudible. Hallmark of the PAP cheating ways.

    Initially, the ST had intented to showcase the PAP candidate pitching him against Dr. Chee by deciding to give the BB BE prominent space on its pages but soon felt compelled to remove both the Murali’s embarrassing speech as well as the impressive opening speech by Dr. Chee, only about an hour or so after first publishing them.

    I was able to witness that before they were removed but most ST readers would have been in the dark as to what transpired. That doctoring and the spin by ST. And no more prominence on its pages on the BB BE thereafter.

    So Murali won.

  • How PAP intimidates:

    Like no lawyer in the whole of SG dared to take on the cases of Roy Ngerng and Han Hui Hui for fear that their ricebowls be ruined by those despots, except Civil Rights lawyer, M. Ravi. And look at what happened to the ricebowl of M.Ravi?

    The same fate happened to Dr. Chee.

    All Hypocrites are the same:
    What I know of Dr. Chee already scares me. No need to talk about what I still don’t. In front gives the impression that he’s a christian but behind supports the LGBTs agenda. I will never vote for him. He’s equally a deceptive & hypocritical person.

  • Don't Talk Cock:

    True Blue Singaporean

    Don’t talk cock, You mean Dr Chee can become a millionaire by cheating on taxi fares, postage stamps etc… Hey man he got a Doctorate degree and can earn a lot of money.

    You want to bluff please do not go to the extremes. Don’t forget we are in year 2017 not 1950′s and all of us have a minimum of polytechnic qualification.

    Go to Sarawak jungle and tell it to the Orang Asli. Even they are getting smarter than you. Farking PAP Liar.

    FYI I am not a member of any political party but a citizen who uses a lot of common sense.

    For those who still do not know what the AIM saga was about, AIM was about a Town Council software paid to a tune of $24m (according to media reports) by us constituents but was subsequently and mysteriously sold to a PAP-owned $2 company (A.I.M.) without any employees for $140K.

    And according to the blog by Alex Au (he has since been forced to take that blog post down. So now no one else will ever get to read that blog post again) this company would then lease the same software back to the PAP-run Town Councils for $140K per year, thus recuperating what it paid for all in one year from one Town Council alone and the lease income for all the subsequent years from the other Town Councils will be pure profits, profits taken from us constituents for what we have already paid for previously.

    This also raised the questions of why the Town Councilors paid such an astronomical sum for such a software, a Windows XP based software, or the background of the company to which this contract for the software was awarded to. Was it awarded to some crony-connected owner or company (as usual?)?

    This incident would not have been discovered had WP not won the General Elections in the Aljunied Hougang Punggol East GRC in 2011 and we would all still be in the dark.

    It came to light when AIM tried to sabotage the WP by refusing to lease that software to WP making WP having to scramble to start developing a new software from scratch, hence the problems and hiccups you see and which the PAP-controlled media is only to quick to highlight.

  • must read - the biggest crooks:

    To date, no law enforcement institution has taken any action or even investigated this highly suspicious operation despite the outrage and clamor by citizens for them to do so. Of course, they would have been quick to investigate if it was committed by WP or another Opposition Party.

    This also raises the questions about whether our Civil Servants or our law enforcement institutions work impartially for the citizens or work for the PAP.

    Dr. Lee Wei Ling and Mr- Lee Hsien Yang have openly accused them of abuse of power and using the State Organs to intimidate them. If they could use the State Organs against Dr. LWL and LHY, what do you think can happen to ordinary Singaporeans? And especially to the critics and the political opponents of the PAP, as we have seen what how they have suffered under the hands of the PAP over and over again? The more impressive you are, the more vicious will be the attacks. So no relent on Dr. Chee.

    Agree totally. That’s why he has been consistently rejected by smart voters. He was given carpet-bombing coverage in the media – no excuse anymore really -and he was beaten fair and square by a fairly lightweight minority PAP candidate. Sudah lah!

  • Creator:

    Nice try, coward.
    You are.

    I debunk the Chee:
    Dr Chee

    What you said makes a lot of sense and pertinent.
    However, Singapore is Uniquely Singapore as it is famous for.

    Sgreans are Different than western intellectuals.

    Singaporeans top in the world in maths and science but this is by brute regurgitation because it’s hardly ever heard of that a native Singaporean scholar invented top in the world engineering inventions.

    So, Singaporeans are different from western intellectuals.

    Everything you said makes sense AND SINGAPOREANS DO NOT BOTHER ABOUT EVERYTHING YOU SAID.

    If they did, they would have found ways to let this be known.

    There is Facebook, social media, WhatsApp, Hong Lim .

    Singaporeans give no two hoots about EVERYTHING pertinent you highlighted.

    It’s a hopeless case.

    Your BB BE experience was good for you for your first try after a long ban. But that experience has told you clearly why it is a hopeless case.

    Humans dun and cannot change drastically.

    The existing adults will remain so till they lie on their graves.
    Only the unborn has a chance of becoming world class intellectuals with real intellectualism.

    I have never been debunked because facts cannot be debunked .

    I Am.

  • Evil begets evil:

    ISA is evil in democracy when the accused is not given the right to defend himself and because of this it is easily abused by evil power of the day as a convenient tool of removing poltical rivals and adversed critics. When the counyry is overcharged with bootlickers with personal rewards and gratification filled up their entire brain stampeding their conscience and human dignity and values knowing this is evil but greed blotched off their conscience and not even bestial dignity. So karma determines evil begets evil.
    Human society hasthis to say sbout leadership:
    If one cannot looks his family with fairness, kindnesd and dignity, how can one leads the country. In other word if one put family members above ciitzens how can he govern the countryemocratic tenets. If one cannot even protect one’s wife from abuse esp within the family, how can he be ecpected to protect his Citizens? If one only revenges after the sggresser is dead and gone, he cannot be expected to govern well because he shies away from agressors to their execution and only avenge the executed after the agressor died thru natural or extraneous circumstances. These well known idioms near philosophical provide abundant basic framework for many award winning drama which somehow preceeded many actual human happenings.
    Nonetheless the eventual root human laws or to some divine laws is evil begets evil and kindness begets kindness which is in fact what many perceive as divine karma.
    Political leadership qualities are decaying fast as human greeds are riskng fast. The only way to retard such phenomena is to choose on man rather than party to achieve a good chechs and balances and condition where each elected person will try to impress by doing better than the other.
    LKY has shortchanged Singaporeans very badly by his ardent desires to eradicate political rival but worse citizen adversed critic. This is perhaps a suppressed view of his legacy!
