Lee Kuan Yew’s grandson says ‘family forced to relocate


A nephew of Singapor(pic) has opened up on social media saying how the family could no longer tolerate the “abuse of power” against his family.
Li Shengwu, son of Hsien Long's brother Hsien Yang, wrote on Facebook on Wednesday that the situation had become so bad that the family planned to relocate overseas.
"I generally avoid commenting on Singapore politics, but this is an exception.
"In the last few years, my immediate family has become increasingly worried about the lack of checks on abuse of power.
"The situation is now such that my parents have made plans to relocate to another country, a painful decision that they have not made lightly," he said.
Li also attached a statement by Hsien Yang and Dr Lee Wei Ling (Hsien Yang's sister), who said they feared that Hsien Loong had prioritised personal popularity and private agendas over the wellbeing of his people.
Li was widely lauded for his touching eulogy for his grandfather Lee Kuan Yew, the founder and long-running prime minister of Singapore who passed away in March, 2015.
The post by Shengwu received 230 responses in the last eight hours, with a comment from Satbir Singh who said, "Courage".
