EX-MP IRENE NG: DEMOLISH OXLEY RD HOUSE SO WE CAN ALL MOVE ON!

Former MP Irene Ng has come up with a brilliant idea to resolve the FamiLEE dispute by asking for 38 Oxley Rd to be demolished NOW. "I believe that as long as the core issue remains – what to do with the house – and as long as the house stands, the saga will not end. It will be a running sore. The Lee family will continue to suffer, and we will not be spared... To end the saga now by demolishing the house, all parties involved have to pay a price... Demolish the house, end the saga now, and let's all move on."

LEE SIBLINGS: LHL MISREPRESENTED TO LKY THAT HOUSE WAS ALREADY GAZETTED, DEFIED HIS LAST WISH

Another episode begins. Lee Hsien Yang and Lee Wei Ling have responded to LHL's Parliamentary rebuttal by saying he made "convoluted, but ultimately false, claims about Lee Kuan Yew's wishes". They accused LHL of trying to play with his words in order to show that LKY wanted the house gazetted. "Merely because LKY and we accept that the government has power to gazette the house does not mean that this is something LKY wished for. If the children were unable to achieve demolition, LKY made clear he did not want his house open to the public... Leaving instructions for how to deal with a bad event doesn't imply that you accept or desire the bad event".

They insisted that LKY was always skeptical about renovating the house and would have made his views public if he had changed his mind. Furthermore, his "unwavering" wish was also detailed in a settlement agreement which was personally endorsed by LHL. "Is LHL suggesting now that LKY wavered in his unwavering wish?"

WHY CAN'T GOVT JUST HONOUR LKY AND GRANT HIM HIS LAST WISH?

No one has suggested that LHY had other ulterior motives or special benefits in wanting the house demolished, except to honour his father's wish. He wanted it demolished even when LHL was the named beneficiary. Subsequently, he paid good money to buy it from LHL to have his sister continue staying there and demolished when it was time. Then to turn it into a memorial garden, if need be. I see in him a fervent desire to honour his father's wish and the absence of a selfish motive.

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."

DR LEE WEI LING: SECRET COMMITTEE IS FACADE USED BY LHL TO ATTACK LKY'S LAST WILL

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."

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."

IS IT A CONFLICT OF INTEREST FOR LHL TO BE IN CHARGE OF OUR RESERVES?

Lee Hsien Loong say there is conflict of interest in Lim Suet Fern getting involved in Lee Kuan Yew's Last Will. The mother of all ironies is he and his wife being in charge of the national reserve when he is the PM.

The Oxley road house worth how much? $50 million? A drop in the ocean when our national reserve is worth at least $500 billion. Or is it worth less than this Oxley road house now? Mother of all ironies. What do you think?

LEE HSIEN YANG: LHL HAS "ERRONEOUS" MEMORY OF WHAT HAPPENED

The Lee family drama continues. Despite LHL's claim that the siblings did not respond to his secret Committee's questions about the Will, Lee Hsien Yang refuted that both of them already answered responded back in February. He also accused LHL of having an "erroneous" memory of what happened. Ouch.

"Loong claims, 'my siblings had not responded to the Committee's questions about how the last will was prepared and the role that Mrs Lee Suet Fern and lawyers from her legal firm played in preparing the last will.'
This is a lie. We replied on 28 Feb, 'The Final Will was not drafted by Stamford Law Corporation or Mr. Ng Joo Khin and LHL's claimed recollection to that effect is clearly erroneous.' LHL's secret committee ignored it. Besides, we thought this was a "private family matter?"
