Lee family feudi

The children of Singapore's late founding leader Lee Kuan Yew - current Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, neurologist Lee Wei Ling and business leader Lee Hsien Yang - are publicly fighting over his estate. At the quarrel's heart is their childhood home, 38 Oxley Road - will it be demolished, as Lee Kuan Yew stated in his will, or will Singapore's government preserve it?

  • Minister K Shanmugam says Lee Hsien Yang and Lee Suet Fern ‘will have every right to provide explanations’ in perjury probe if they return to Singapore to be interviewed by police
  • Lee Hsien Yang has said he will remain in self-exile in a Western country and fears he will not be able to see his sister, who is extremely unwell, face to face again

Lee Hsien Yang had been considering running in the presidential election, but is close to giving up due to the latest wave of verbal attacks against him.


Lee Hsien Yang’s move to sell the home comes as Singapore experiences a property frenzy that led to S$32.9 billion in sales in the first half of 2021 alone.


The suit concerned false statements published by The Online Citizen in 2019 about Lee Kuan Yew’s former home. All proceeds will be donated to charity, the PM’s press secretary said.

Former leader urges the next generation to ‘deliberate carefully’ as he launches the second instalment of his biography ‘Standing Tall: The Goh Chok Tong Years’.

Lee Hsien Loong is suing the chief editor of The Online Citizen for libel over an article published last year about the family dispute over Lee Kuan Yew’s home.

An Institute of Policy Studies survey conducted after the July general election showed a greater desire for political pluralism among voters and a rise in perceptions of credibility of the main opposition Workers’ Party.

The daughter-in-law of former prime minister Lee Kuan Yew is appealing a verdict that found her guilty of improper conduct in directly handing the patriarch’s will.


Lee Hsien Yang’s support of the PSP, Heng Swee Keat’s East Coast Plan and Vivian Balakrishnan’s debate with Jamus Lim and Chee Soon Juan were among the most-talked about moments of the nine-day campaign.

The Sukarnoputri sisters in Indonesia, Singapore’s Lee siblings and the royal family of Thailand electrify the public with their personal and electoral spats.


Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s estranged brother has explained his decision to join the Progress Singapore Party, and why the ruling PAP has ‘lost its way’.


The ruling People’s Action party will face opponents in all seats for only the second time since Singapore’s independence. Here’s the lowdown on the contenders.


On Nomination Day, Deputy PM Heng Swee Keat made an 11th hour switch to East Coast GRC as the PM’s brother Lee Hsien Yang ended weeks of speculation about his election plans, saying ‘Singapore does not need another Lee’.

The ruling PAP will be seeking a strong vote of confidence in its ‘4G’ leaders. Singapore’s coronavirus response and economic woes are issues that will feature in a relatively muted campaign with no mass rallies.

Hsien Yang and his sister Lee Wei Ling are locked in a quarrel with their older brother, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, over the fate of their late father Lee Kuan Yew’s house.

Singapore’s Attorney General says the conduct of a grandson of Lee Kuan Yew who is refusing to take part in a contempt of court case ‘suggests a sense that he is above the law’.

Li Shengwu says he will no longer take part in a court case brought against him by the Attorney General’s Chambers, but a legal expert says defendants don’t get to choose.
