The grandson of Lee Kuan Yew and the second son of Lee Hsien Yang, Li Huanwu, got married to his male partner in a ceremony in Cape Town on Friday, 24th May. This was announced via the personal Instagram account of Heng Yirui, Huanwu's male partner.
Singapore activist Jolovan Wham has expressed gratitude towards Lee Hsien Yang for offering $20,000. Wham is appealing against the High Court which found him guilty of scandalising the judiciary. He previously insinuated that Malaysia's judges were more independent than Singapore's. What will LHL have to say to this now that his brother is helping an activist he is so against? How will this feud unfold?
Lee Hsien Yang posted that the AG has filed more than 500 pages worth of complaints against his wife, Lee Suet Fern. He said that LHL never voiced any issues with LKY's will when their father was alive. He was also bitter that his brother is unleashing so many complaints now even though he never bothered to discuss things with him and his sister, Lee Wei Ling. Lee Suet Fern has filed her Defence. How do you think this drama will unfold and how much public resources do you think will be wasted?
The High Court has given the green light for the Attonery-General's Chambers (AGC) to proceed with contempt of court proceedings against Li Shengwu, the son of Lee Hsien Yang and the nephew of Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.
In another stinging Facebook post against the Attorney General's Chambers of Singapore, Li Shengwu has accused the AGC of leaking details of his contempt of court case to the Prime Minister's Private Secretary!
In a Reuters interview, Li Shengwu said he left Singapore for the US more than a week earlier as planned as his friends were worried that he may be detained or interrogated due to his contempt of court case. Prime Minister's Press Secretary Chang Li Lin was quick to defend the legal system by saying it is inaccurate to make such statements because it is only part of legal procedures and laws.
Li Sheng Wu, grandson of Lee Kuan Yew and the son of Lee Hsien Yang, the brother of current Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, has hit back at the Attorney General's Chambers by contesting his charges of "contempt of court" in a Facebook post.
The AGC has filed an application in the High Court to begin committal proceedings against Mr Li Shengwu for contempt of court. This is in connection with a Facebook post he had put up on Jul 15 that criticised the Singapore court system, said the AGC in a statement.
SDP has written to President Tony Tan in asking him to revoke AG Lucien Wong's appointment. This is in light of the AGC's reply that it will not look into allegations of abuse of power by PM Lee. It described this as hypocritical given that the AGC wants to look into Li Shengwu's private Facebook posting.
Opposition politician Jeannette Chong-Aruldoss thinks it will be interesting to see what the AGC will do to Li Shengwu for being critical of the court. "If the AGC does not take LSW to take him to task for his statement, then we know that if it is OK for LSW to say "the Singapore government is very litigious and has a pliant court system", it is OK for us to say that too".
