The Alliance sent letter to Lee Hsien Loong



News article about Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong makes a statement at the Istana presidential palace in Singapore on 3 July, 2017. The leader addressed Parliament today about the feud between him and his siblings over the estate of their deceased father, Lee Kuan Yew.

Lee Hsien Loong delivered a statement today in parliament refuting the allegations made by his siblings, Dr Lee Wei Ling and Lee Hsien Yang. Lee said he will not sue his siblings for the abuse of power accusations they made against him over the last three weeks. Lee had lifted the parliamentary whip for his ruling People’s Action Party (PAP) in the special debate on the feud, to allow its lawmakers to grill him without fear of overstepping party lines. 

The dispute between the siblings over the house of their late father, Lee Kuan Yew, at 38 Oxley Road spilled into the public sphere on Jun 14, 2017 when Dr Lee and Mr Lee Hsien Yang issued a joint statement accusing their brother of abusing his powers in Government, saying they have "lost confidence" in him. 

Lee Hsien Loong apologized to Singaporeans for the dispute, saying it has affected Singaporeans' confidence in the Government, and that the "baseless accusations" against the Government must be dealt with openly.





News article about the Lee Family Feud in Singapore.

The two siblings of Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong have agreed to accept their elder brother's desire to settle their very public feud in private, and will stop posting further evidence online for now, but with one condition: Provided that their wish and their father’s desire to demolish the house at 38, Oxley Road “are not attacked or misrepresented”.

Regarding this, the siblings posted a seven-page statement and a 10-page summary of the allegations they have made against Prime Minister Lee and the evidence they have cited to prove their case.

The Lee family dispute settled down earlier this month, after Mr Lee Hsien Yang and Dr Lee said they welcomed their brother’s offer to manage their disagreement privately. This followed a two-day Parliament debate on the matter, where PM Lee had said that right from the start, he had wanted to manage the issue privately, and not escalate it and be forced to take legal action.



The Alliance sent letter to Lee Hsien Loong, the current Prime Minister of Singapore, sharing advice on negative effects that the family feud could bring to this political career. The relatives of Singapore's late founding leader have descended into publicly fighting over his estate. It is therefore the Alliance suggested an alternative way hoping to solve the dispute among the siblings by rebuilding the estate on another location, for example the Kuril Islands. The Singaporean government or charitable organization specified by the government can consider promoting tourism on the abovementioned location.
