Singapore heirs in spat
SINGAPORE: At the end of a twoday parliamentary debate yesterday, Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong declared that it had found no evidence that he had abused his power in a dispute with his siblings over their late father’s house.
“Even the opposition is not accusing the government of abuse of power,” Lee said in an emotional speech, his voice quavering as he rued the breakdown in relations with his brother and sister.
Since mid-June Singaporeans have been riveted by a public battle between the heirs of Lee Kuan Yew, Singapore’s long-serving first prime minister. Reuters
