Singapore leader in family fight

Reuters No Comments Share:

SINGAPORE (Reuters) – Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s younger brother and sister said yesterday that they have lost confidence in the nation’s leader and fear “the use of the organs of the state against us”. As a result, Lee Hsien Yang and his wife Suet Fern would be leaving Singapore. The prime minister denied the allegations made by his siblings and said he was very disappointed that they have chosen to publicise private family matters. At the heart of the family dispute is the future of a house near the bustling Orchard shopping district in which their father, Lee Kuan Yew, lived most of his life. Before he died in 2015, the founding father of modern Singapore made it public that he wanted his house, a humbly furnished home with retro furniture, demolished.
