The sister of Prime Minister Lee Hseing Loong, also known as the dishonourable son in many circles, Dr Lee Wei Ling recently posted on her Facebook to refute claims that Lawyer Kwa Kim Li had nothing to do with their father, Lee Kuan Yew’s last will. In fact, she produced an email that clearly showed Kwa Kim Li was very much involved in LKY’s last will from the very beginning and every step of the way too.
Lee Wei Ling has been posting on her social media account to refute any claims that her brother, the PM, and his machinery made against her and Lee Hsien Yang. This latest salvo brought to light that Kwa Kim Li’s claims that she “denied involvement in the events that led to this 2013 will,” was false, and that charges against Lee Hsien Yang’s wife was also questioned by Dr Lee. She has been outspokenly critical of her older brother, the prime minister, at times calling him her “dishonourable brother Loong” or that he has made “false and dishonourable allegations”.
But questions arises that once the Fake News Bill becomes law, will the authorities clam down on her posts and declare her a fake news peddler? After all, she is accusing none other than the PM of Singapore himself, being her brother or not is secondary to the argument. If this is not fake news, then this must be true? After all, this is not an opinion, or a satirical piece by Dr Lee, isn’t it?
