The truth is that the committee was a facade used by LHL to attack our father’s will. Indranee asks us, LKY’s children, why we have requested a commitment on demolition. We no more than responded to questions posed by the secret committee. The answer is simple, we seek to honor our father’s final request in his will: “I would ask each of my children to ensure our wishes with respect to the demolition of the House be carried out.”
She tells us that the committee was set up in response to consider the request that the government commit to demolition. This is untrue. A few days ago, DPM Teo revealed that the committee could make no commitment, only a non-binding recommendation.
How can a committee be set up to consider a request, when its deliverables (discovered only now) preclude it from fulfilling that request?
