Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said in his Parliamentary speech that he would not sue his siblings despite them making reckless allegations against him and the integrity of the Government. He said that the allegations did not have any substance and arose from their differing viewpoints over the house at Oxley road.
Although many people have asked him why he was not suing his siblings in Court to put a stop to his siblings smear campaign against him, he decided against it after considering his options carefully and despite having a very strong case against them.
Lee said under other circumstances, he would have sued those who spewed such baseless allegations immediately but by suing his own brother and sister, it would further tarnish and besmirch his parent’s names, thus decided to not escalate the situation. He claimed that afterall they were brother and sisters and their parent’s children.
