Lee Wei Ling (LWL) is back.

After not publicly sharing on her Facebook page for nine months, the daughter of the late Lee Kuan Yew (LKY) has ended that inactivity by criticising the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC)’s actions against Lee Suet Fern (LSF) over the preparation of the LKY’s will.

“Unprecedented use of such legal process”

In her Facebook post on Jan. 6 night, LWL noted that the lodging of over 500 pages of complaint to the Law Society “is an unprecedented use of such legal process involving a private will”.

LSF, the wife of Lee Hsien Yang, was involved in the drafting of LKY’s will.

LWL accused Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong of being unhappy with LKY’s will and LKY’s wish to demolish his 38 Oxley Road house.

LWL said that PM Lee “sought to attack the will through a committee of his ministers” in 2016 and 2017.

This is despite the fact that PM Lee has previously said that he had recused himself from the Ministerial Committee on 38 Oxley Road chaired by Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean.

Lee Wei Ling asked for the reason regarding “new attack” on LKY’s will

LWL said that LKY, a highly regarded lawyer, never complained about his will.

She added that no beneficiary has complained to the Law Society, not even PM Lee, who was advised by his then personal lawyer Lucien Wong.

LWL argued that the AGC’s action is “wholly without merit” and asked for the reason for the new attack on LKY’s will.

LWL concluded that while the AGC has been “relentless” with bringing a case against her nephew Li Shengwu for a private Facebook post, she noted that the AGC has not prosecuted any party who shared or published his private post.

Li currently faces contempt of court proceedings by AGC over a Facebook post that allegedly questioned the independence of Singapore’s judiciary.
