PAP leaders comes out in force to vouch for PM Lee’s integrity as younger Lee relentlessly questions it

8365

People’s Action Party (PAP) leaders and people associated with the establishment have come out in force to throw their support behind their leader, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, even as the PM’s younger brother continues to question the integrity of both the PM and his wife.

In the past week since releasing a joint-statement with his older sister Dr Lee Wei Ling, Lee Kuan Yew’s younger son has been releasing several documents in a piecemeal fashion to cast aspersions on his older brother.

Today, Mr Lee Hsien Yang released two such documents. In the first, he alleged that PM Lee obtained a Deed Gift in his public capacity. He asked: “When other Ministers receive confidential documents in their official capacities, are they also allowed to use these documents to fight personal legal battles with families?”

3 days ago, we asked: Did LHL acquire the Deed of Gift in his public capacity, or in his private capacity?We already knew the answer.

In another document released later in the day, Mr Lee accused the Prime Minister’s wife, Ho Ching, of overstepping her role and acting as a contact for the Prime Minister’s Office in lending items that belonged to Lee Kuan Yew to the National Heritage Board.

In the joint-statement with his sister which was issued on 14 June, the siblings claimed that even though “Ho Ching holds no elected or official position in government, her influence is pervasive, and extends well beyond her job purview.” Ho Ching is also the CEO of Temasek Holdings.

LKY was admitted gravely ill into the ICU on 5 February 2015. The next day, Ho Ching helped herself to a number of LKY'…

As Singaporeans are buffeted with conflicting messages from the Lee family, the leaders from the PAP have come out in force to vouch for the integrity of the party leaders.

Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean yesterday defended the setting up of the Ministerial Committee, as well as PM Lee. According to DPM Teo, PM Lee recused himself from government decisions on the property.

Deputy Prime Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam while acknowledging that the PAP-led government had its share of policies that have turned out quite wrong at different points in our history, dismissed the aspersions cast on the Ministerial Committee as a “challenge in governance that will never disappear, and is a challenge everywhere in the world.” His post touched especially on the integrity of the different generations of PAP leaders and said that they were all men of honour.

In saying Ministerial Committees are not uncommon, DPM Tharman urges Singaporeans to have confidence in the Government

Former PAP MP Irene Ng has also come to the defence of her ex boss and said the siblings were demolishing PM Lee’s reputation and the government’s with it. “Can’t see what the younger siblings are trying to achieve if their concern is with their father’s name and legacy.” she said.

A letter to Financial Times mocking Lee Kuan Yew's "Asian values". And so questions over Lee Kuan Yew's intangible…

  1. For god sake this is family problem.go court not parliament amos yee talk cock about him , he put that boy in jail.so now do the same lah ,if only you not guilty need kakiang to backup..i smell ikan bilis here

  2. Ric Tango says:

    Laugh till thw cow comes home….no one dare to ask hard question or even suggest that it should not be discussed in parliament. Why ….because LHY and LWL are not there to question and rebuke the lies.

  3. Shamsul Hk says:

    It’s about time the PM resign and live in seclusion. Finally the legacy of the Lee is coming to an end. As what they say the legacy will be dead by the 3rd generation. This is even better. It stops at two. Does it sound familiar?

  4. PAP you are great, you are tying LHY legs and hands and throw him into ring to fight with LHL. When you take your oath, you swear that you will be fair and just to carry out your duties. So be fair.

  5. Money makes the world go round. Hsien Loong, if u can transfer to me 1 million dollar now (one time payment), i also can vouch that u r innocent and will rally behind u. PM ne for acct details

  6. This is sounding like Najib and his ministers UMNO/BN… supporting him even as DoJ of USA are proceeding with 1MDB money laundering… where Najib directly involved with 1MDB…

    1. MdAlias Kamisa the second statement is actually made by the chief Servant supposedly……he was fighting the battle alone for a week with no minister backing him except one of his DPM.

  7. Gerard Ng says:

    WELL IT LOOKS LIKE THIS IS COMING….TRUE….so appropriate by Shengwu Li!
    “Today we are going to learn a lot about the country of my birth. We are going to learn whether (as I hope) the ruling party is still full of men and women of quality and strong character, or whether “it is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it!”

  8. All in denial after LKY dies

    LSL trying hard to to defend himself for the wrong reasons
    and making himself and family fools
    Evidence and shit in open for whole wide world to laugh and criticise
    And handling of matter in parliament us totally stupid

    I wish that the ministers stay out and touch their own hearts what if they were in his shoes…. disgrace

  9. Everyone so unhappy with the leadership. Migrate lah! Complain so much for what? Or join the opposition lah. All of u r idiots who r well fed with too much time. But have to blame pap for making sg so successful that u morons r able to talk shit.

  10. WH Wong says:

    What is the point to come to his defence when the accusations are so undoubtedly having some basis and those defending him are being seen as his cronies? Why the Tua Pek Gong sitting in the palace and collecting millions of dollars is totally silent till now and not ordering an independent inquiry committee (not staff by cronies) to clear the air for all citizens and for the interests of this nation?

  11. Seng Kueh says:

    If LHL is not his Bros. Do you think LHY dare to make any enquiry as he said it were confidential.If a Senior Gov’t Officer wanted to involve as disclosing any Gov’t confidential documents as declared transparent and no more secret or against any laws.

  12. Ace Chew says:

    The more pap ministers come out to defend pinkie the more guilty pinkie looks. Is this the type of govt that the 70% vote for? All rubber stampers and yes man, defend pinkie at all costs coz their pay check is at stake? Or is it for their sons who are ready to join the white wagon. Simple instruction by the old man want to challenge why din they challenge the old man when he was alive? Sad for the old man that his billion dollars cabinet only dare to challenge him when he is dead. Gutless pricks!!!

  13. If PAP can kick out two members of their party due to sexual immorality and adultery, why not conduct an internal enquiry and vote if this particular member has sullied their party’s reputation or not due to abuse of power? Is he so exceptional and even above party rules?

  14. Freddy Lim says:

    The Will is the cause of all this. As parents we see it is the last thing to be left for the children. But to them, it is the beginning to fight for what they deserves. Out of greed, jealousy,they fight it out . Some even happens during the wake of their parents. ” Money Not Enough. Let’s live and let’s live. How much meals, can you eat per day ?. Can you happy, going around the many times?. Do you thing, you will be the happiest man on earth, living like a King in the palace ?. Happiness and contentment is the best thing in life. Be Thankful ,and God Bless.

    1. oh haha on e again 70 70 70.. is this election time? this post means im 70? that shows how childish and non objective u are.. even if im the 30.. im also ashamed

    2. Take a good look around you. Just how many of your kind, the dumb, the blind, and the naive, 70%, dare come out and out rightly support LHL. Will you be the last to leave the sinking ship?

  15. Blind n brainwashed supporters????????? Where is the laws???? Then mean that they are the laws n will do/say anything/ change as when they like to protect themselves????? Wondering?????????

  16. Jeff Heng says:

    Seriously…. Mr PM. U should just resign n bring your wife with you!!! The more you explain, the more you defend, but don’t even dare to challenge your father will in court but parliament???? Only prove one thing. You are damn GUILTY!!!!

  17. Donald Tan says:

    They will have to come to his support… otherwise, “When the tree falls, the monkeys scatter”.

    From the support he has even before they could listen from both parties, it shows that the parliament is not the place… The court of law is the only place to listen to both sides of the arguments. Period.

    1. Donald Tan says:

      In parliament, the siblings can’t rebut him… and the speaker of parliament will protect him.

      But in the court of law, the lawyers will get a chance to grill him. And that the international media is watching.

  18. Garie Sim says:

    Ofcos they have to stand behind him, otherwise they will not get their million salaries, to them money always stands for truth, even the leadership is a dishonourable son.

    1. LHY, the mark of a GREAT FIGHTER is that HE FIGHTS ON HIS OWN TERMS or NOT FIGHT AT ALL! You have to BELIEVE IN YOURSELF ! The enemy is weak n calling for reinforcement. Ponder n deliberate b4 you make your move

  19. Gary Ng says:

    You only earn Man of Honour if you stand alone as a civilian and defend your allegations..it is a one man battle, don’t drag the whole battalion down with you, that’s how you earn Honour and Respect

  20. So appropriate by Shengwu Li!
    “Today we are going to learn a lot about the country of my birth. We are going to learn whether (as I hope) the ruling party is still full of men and women of quality and strong character, or whether “it is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it!”

  21. You pay me one million..and I swear under oath that I’ll vouch for you for the rest of my life.What n how much does it cost to vouch ?.Nothing impossible or too difficult right….just vouch n make it sound credible lorr…that’s all what !

  22. That’s the problem, u scratch my back, I scratch yours. We all walks happily to the bank and walks out with smiles..

    Who the hell in the world, would challenge your own boss!!

  23. Smart move to use tharman as PR to allay our lost of confidence. Before 3rd of july your men has already show their colours. Even the party whip was raised will they dare to ask hard questions? The big mouth ccs kbw dl lw gf jt and tge rest will likes to hear what they said.

  24. Ronald Lim says:

    no other parliament will have to lift the whip to debate or discuss an issue. parliamentary models lifts the whip during passing of motions or bills. this is LHL trying to pull wool over the eyes of his citizens. but this also means that MPs are NOT allowed to ask questions freely in parliament. now the cat is out of the bag. all questions asked in parliament are vetted beforehand. uniquely singapore brand of parliamentary democracy. 😛

  25. Tony Chai says:

    How can ho ching take lky things from lky house when lky was still alive n was rightful owner. If lky was dead already when hc take lky stuff n when will was read statimg house is bequeathed to lhl then I see no wromg. However to tske things from someone still alive is not right…stealing??

    1. LHL was removed as executor of the Will by LKY so what rights u have to enter the hse and removed the deceased’s belonging? If that is not theft wat is??
