Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong issued a statement and video on Monday (June 19) evening, apologising to Singaporeans over how the ‘private dispute’ between his siblings and himself over Mr Lee Kuan Yew’s house at 38 Oxley Road has “affected Singapore’s reputation and Singapore’s confidence in the Government”.
He added that the “baseless accusations against the Government” made by his siblings Mr Lee Hsien Yang and Ms Lee Wei Ling will be openly refuted in his ministerial statement when Parliament convenes next month on July 3.
Said Mr Lee in his statement: “I have instructed that the PAP party whip be lifted. I urge all MPs, including the non-PAP MPs, to examine the issues thoroughly and question me and my Cabinet colleagues vigorously.”
