Lee Kuan Yew's final will was not drafted by Stamford Law: Lee Hsien Yang
STAMFORD Law Corporation did not draft Lee Kuan Yew's final will, the latter's younger son Lee Hsien Yang said on Friday in a bitter feud with his brother, Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.
In his latest Facebook post on Friday morning, the younger Lee said: "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'?"
In a statement issued by his lawyers at Drew and Napier late Thursday, PM Lee raised serious questions on the way his father's last will was made, and whether there was a conflict of interest when his sister-in-law Lee Suet Fern helped prepare the will.
Lee Suet Fern is married to his younger brother Lee Hsien Yang. The final will restored Lee Hsien Yang's one-third share in the estate, whereas the penultimate will gave a larger share to their sister.
