Reply from PM Lee Hsien Loong to the Public Statement by Dr Lee Wei Ling and Mr Lee Hsien Yang

PM Lee Hsien Loong | 6 July 2017

 

I note my siblings’ latest public statement. I share their wish not to carry on the dispute in public and to manage the disagreement in private. That is exactly what I have been trying to do.

My siblings’ statement also repeats their previous allegations against me. I have already refuted these and stand by what I have said.

My siblings referred to a ceasefire offer from them. They wanted me to call off my Ministerial Statement and the debate in Parliament, disband the Ministerial Committee, and not respond to their accusations.  I could not agree to do any of that. It would have been improper and irresponsible.
