Lee Hsien Yang, Lee Wei Ling allege misrepresentations made to family on 38 Oxley Rd
A DAY after Lee Hsien Loong (LHL) made his ministerial statement in Parliament, his siblings alleged on Tuesday that Singapore's Prime Minister has made misrepresentations to his father, the late Lee Kuan Yew (LKY), and family that gazetting the family home at 38 Oxley Road was either "inevitable" or that the house was already gazetted.
"Because of LHL's misrepresentations to his father and family, in Sep 2012 LKY believed that the government had already gazetted the house," Lee Hsien Yang and Lee Wei Ling wrote in a Facebook post.
They insisted that just because their father left instructions for what to do if the house was gazetted, it did not mean he accepted that the house should be gazetted.
"Leaving instructions for how to deal with a bad event doesn't imply that you accept or desire the bad event."
The two took issue with PM Lee's suggestion "that because LKY signed some renovation plans in early 2012, he was open to preservation of the house".
The two-day Parliamentary debate over 38, Oxley Road continues today (Tuesday).
