Some of you might remember the family feud between Lee Wei Ling (LWL), Lee Hsien Yang (LHY) and Lee Hsien Loong (LHL) over the house at 38 Oxley Road. For those who don't, LWL and LHY wanted the house to be demolished as dictated in Lee Kuan Yew's (LKY) will. However, LHK has been unhappy with the will and his late father's wish and has fought against the decision of demolishing it. In 2016 and 2017, LWL claimed that PM Lee wanted to attack the will through a committee of his ministers. 

On the FB post, LWL said that the LKY never complained about his will, and that all parties including LHL has accepted the will as representing Lee Kuan Yew’s true wishes. So why the new attack on the wills now after all this time? 

Her FB post was shared by her brother LHY who has not posted on his Facebook as well since Sept 2018.

You can read her full post here:

The Attorney-General's Chambers has recently lodged over 500 pages of complaint to the Law Society against Hsien Yang’s wife over the preparation our father’s will. They claim that the AG, Lucien Wong, Hsien Loong’s former personal lawyer, has recused himself. The AGC’s complaint repeats allegations that were made years ago by Hsien Loong through his personal lawyer. As far as we know, this is an unprecedented use of such legal process involving a private will.

Hsien Loong has been unhappy with our father’s will and our father’s wish to demolish his home at 38 Oxley Road. Lee Kuan Yew informed all his children and his lawyer at Lee & Lee when he completed his final will and codicil 5 years ago. In 2015, on Hsien Loong’s urging, the estate secured probate for the will. At the time, all parties including Hsien Loong accepted the will as representing Lee Kuan Yew’s true wishes. After probate, in 2016 and 2017, Hsien Loong sought to attack the will through a committee of his ministers.

Lee Kuan Yew, a highly regarded lawyer, never complained about his will. No beneficiary has complained to the Law Society, not even Hsien Loong who was advised by Lucien Wong (previously his personal lawyer, now AG). Why therefore this new attack on our father’s will? Why is this being initiated now, and by the AGC, after all this time? Our view is that this action is wholly without merit.

The AGC has also been relentless this past one and a half years pursuing a prosecution of Li Shengwu for a private Facebook post. At the same time, the AGC has not prosecuted any party who shared or published his private post.

What do you think? Will there be more familee saga?
