I will address allegations: PM Lee
PUBLISHED ON 27 Jun 2017
Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has reiterated that he will deal with the allegations levied upon him by his siblings, Mr Lee Hsien Yang and Dr Lee Wei Ling.

Responding to media queries on the Facebook posts by his siblings, PM Lee said: "My siblings continue to make allegations about what I supposedly did or did not do. They are mostly inaccurate. As I earlier said, I will be making a statement in Parliament on 3 July 2017. I will at that time deal with the allegations that need to be addressed."

The Lee family has embroiled in a dispute over their father and People Action Party’s founding Secretary-General, the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew. The house was the birth place of the PAP and the Government and PM Lee’s siblings are demanding for the demolition of the house. 

But Deputy Prime Minister and the Chairman of the Ministerial Committee on 38 Oxley Road, Mr Teo Chee Hean, in a late night statement, explained that it was not true that the ministerial committee is bent on preventing the demolition of house. 

DPM Teo said "I met Mr Lee Hsien Yang several times between April and July 2015. I informed him that PM Lee had recused himself on Government decisions relating to No. 38 Oxley Road. I conveyed Cabinet’s deep respect for Mr Lee Kuan Yew, and that Cabinet will take very seriously Mr Lee’s wishes regarding the house, as expressed in his Will, at a time when a decision has to be made regarding the house.”

Mr Teo also said that he informed Mr Lee Hsien Yang “that no decision is needed now.” He stated that as Dr Lee Wei Ling is living in the house, and that “a decision made prospectively by the current Government could not bind a future Government.”
