The tale of seven wills

The prime minister and his deputy spent two days in parliament attempting to ascertain the intention of Lee Kuan Yew with regard to his house at 38 Oxley Road.

The prime minister submitted three statutory declarations to the ministerial committee headed by Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean. A summary was made public by the prime minister soon after the issue of the joint statement of his younger siblings.

The summary did not rebut the allegations of abuse of power by the siblings. It was all about the seven wills made by Lee Kuan Yew, six of which are totally irrelevant and should never have been made public. They added confusion to the serious allegations of the siblings.

We learn from the various public statements that the last and 7th will was registered in the Wills Registry and probate was duly granted within a year of the death of Lee Kuan Yew in 2015.

To me that was the end of the matter. The prime minister had failed to challenge the will which means that he has accepted its due execution.

Every will revokes the previous will, unless the lawyer is careless enough not to insert the crucial revocation clause. The six wills made before the 7th would clearly have all been revoked and the originals destroyed.

What then is the purpose of the prime minister obtaining copies of the six wills from Lee Kuan Yew’s lawyer whether in his public or private capacity?

Further, a lawyer has to protect the confidentiality of matters entrusted to him by his client, in this case Lee Kuan Yew who is dead. This duty continues even after death. Was there a breach of professional ethics which may entail disciplinary sanctions? Will the Law Society of Singapore investigate the matter?

The two day parliamentary session have not resolved the most crucial allegation that the prime minister had abused his power. We no longer have a JB Jeyaretnam in parliament. And so I doubt if anyone will have the courage to investigate and ask more questions. The words of Goh Chok Tong: “Tang Liang Hong is not my brother” ring loud and clear.

    We do have a new JBJ, but he is not in parliment. He is called Dr Chee. Daft sinkies should send him in next election.

    Great comment by Ms Teo SL.

    Besides the late Mr JBJ who is able to grill those MIWs esp Mai Hum in Parliament until their pants drop, there is also another person who is able to do the same and that’s Dr Chee SJ! Unfortunately those DAFTS voters of Puki Batok SMC chose to ACCEPT and listen to those one-sided propaganda from the PAPigs via the Shits Times and PAPigs’ controlled TV channels to vote in the Ah Neh instead of Dr Chee into Parliament in the BE! Those DAFTS will reap what they sow. HoLee Shits.

    Why is it difficult to understand? Lawyers, Politicians, religious leaders are all scumbags of society. And the businessmen make use of the scumbags to get rich and in turn share their bags of gold with he scumbags.

    The common thread among scumbags is they have their own compass of what is right and wrong and have the final say given their common interests and position of authority.

    You, the little man and the doormat of society, who are you to question their ideological interpretations?

    Go back to work you little sheep

  • By raising the issue of the six Wills before, LHL is trying to find an reason to protest the final Will. Knowing there are no legal grounds to do so, he tried to use the general public’s lack of legal knowledge to imply there is wrong doing on the part of LHY and the wife. Knowing it is hard to convince the public due to the evidences the siblings have provided, he tried to confuse instead. This modus operandi had worked for LHL and PAP many times, he had hoped it would work again. Who knows, it might have? Surprisingly, you can fool the Singapore public much of the time, as long as you can flick flack in fluent English. That’s why even when Low Thia Khiang raised good points, Singaporeans still condemn him, because his English not powderful enough to sound “legit”. That’s why Singaporeans still worship ang mos. Stupid but sadly, true.

  • Dr Tan Tai Wei:

    Maybe those here who have called GCT “woody Goh” had a point. That retort “Tan Liang Hong isn’t my brother” was meant by him to be smart and curt reposte (he sat down with that arrogant look of wisdom and victory immediately after). But it was totally off the mark. It was to answer the query why PM wasn’t going to sue when, compared to Tan Liang Hong’s purported slander, siblings’ was much graver. Goh’s retort simply confirmed the criticism that PM was practicing a sort of nepotism by not suing only because LHY and sis were family.

  • Ah Fah:

    It is the spin of seven wills, sexing up the circumstances leading to the final will, which in fact show the pressure the old Lee faced, and hinting at some wrongdoing of LHY’s wife. The character of the Prime Minister is flawed.

  • Mr Gohgohnut and Mrs Peanut:

    Ms Teo should consider writing a book entitled – “Pinky Man and the 7 wills”.

    It’d definitely be more interesting than “Snow White and the 7 dwarfs”.

    Alternatively, you can write one about “Mr Gohgohnut, Mrs Peanut and ‘he’s not my brother’!”

    What the D1 wants is that “I don’t F care what you guys say, as long as I am the Emperor, my word is final”. Arrogancy prevail, absolutely no regards to rule of law. He thinks he is above the law. As long as he is not happy, the whole Government MUST be used to run it down at all cost just to satisfy one Dishonorable One. Singapore under D1 is not only a joke but a police state with no law on them.

    Because of LHL’s smoke grenade, Mainstream Media’s selective reporting as well as attempts of indoctrination, and poor comprehension on the part of WP, eveyone, including BBC reporter in Singapore, is bewildered (blur like sotong).

  • No change:

    The law society here is just there for show. They don’t actually do any real work unlike the Bar Council up north. At the end of the day they just want to protect their rice bowl.The day they all march on the street for justice and protection against abuse of power will be the day we all respect then. Until then, don’t expect too much.

  • Good Old Pioneers:

    Teo Soh Lung,

    You got the points. There are more other legal points. As a professional you can go deeper and provide the rationale and legal backing better than us laymen and lay women.

    Please write a book titled: “He IS Not My Brother!”

    The book will serve as a historical record from our points of view, instead of the twisted interpretations and confusion that have been provided by the 154th Shitty Times and the Crooked and Corrupted Power, the Tyrant.

    Thank you.

    Sincerely,

    From a few good old pioneers.

  • Why?:

    The only question that is critical and revealing of the PM’s moral integrity is the one presented by MP Sun Xueling and never answered:
    “Why was 38 Oxley Road offered to Lee Wei Ling at a nominal $1, and same house offered to Lee Hsien Yang at $24 million plus another 50%?”

    We do have a Kangaroo Court here, it is solely made for kangaroos to “hop” within the “four fence up” area !

    These “kangaroos” are given permission to “kick” their opponents.

    Why was GCT defending LHL? LHL is NOT his brother. Is it because of money? LHL “pays” him by allowing him to stay in the party and in Parliament.

    Absolutely right. Dr Chee (and Kenneth Jeyaretnam) are the type of opposition politicians Singaporeans need in Parliament. They are not afraid of PAP. LTK of WP does not “have it”. He is not tough enough. He is too scared of PAP.

    More than the number of wills and the express intentions of the deceased, this is becoming a local drama filled with intrigue, suspense, suspicion, manipulation, side stepping, back stabbing, in-law power broking, etc.. “she said and he said” Looks a dynasty in decline, much like most 3rd and 4th generation power houses; decay starts from within. Over money and power of course. Interesting also that the state gets involved or gets used to exert its power and say. What next? How is this debate in parliament, funded by hardworking taxpayers, benefiting Singaporeans or is it just “wayang time” for another tv serial?
