LI SHENGWU LEFT SINGAPORE EARLIER, FEARED HE'LL BE DETAINED

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.

OXLEY RD DISPUTE SHOWS DIFFERENT LAWS FOR ELITES, HOW CAN WE "NORMAL PPL" BE CONFIDENT?

Our reader is disappointed by the Oxley Road dispute as it shows double standards in Singapore - one set of laws for the elite, and another for ordinary Singaporeans. LHY and LWL are allowed to cast aspersions at the PM over a course of 2 weeks without facing any legal action while less powerful Singaporeans are subjected to the law of defamation and lawsuit if they do the same.

"How do you explain, Mr Tharman, this double standards? You said... 'Have confidence, folks.' Perhaps you should try on the shoes of those who have been sued, bankrupted or gone into exile. As one who supports you being PM, I am disappointed at your nonchalance in this saga."

OPP POLITICIAN: EQUALLY SNEAKY THAT DEMOLITION CLAUSE WAS LEFT OUT OF OTHER WILLS

Opposition politician and lawyer Jeannette Chong-Aruldoss has her suspicions about the Demolition Clause in LKY's Last Will. She thinks it is equally sneaky that the clause was deleted in the 5th and 6th wills, and it was "fortunately" re-inserted into his Last Will.

"Suggestions of sneakiness is mere personal opinion. It is certainly not unusual at all for anyone to make several wills, each time changing his mind according to his feelings and according to who's persuasions as he decided to follow. Regardless of whether one followed the 'right' counsel, if he signed the Will voluntarily in compliance with all the formal requirements, the Will is valid and legally binding. Ultimately, the last Will supercedes all earlier ones."
