Hence, the police have commenced investigations into them for potential offences of giving false evidence in judicial proceedings, said Mr Teo.
He added that as part of the investigations, the police requested an interview with Mr Lee and Mrs Lee, which they initially agreed to attend.
“However, (they) later had a change of heart and refused to attend. Their refusal is disappointing,” he said.
He also said the police have advised Mr Lee and Mrs Lee to reconsider participating in investigations, but they have since left Singapore and remain out of the country.
The police have thus informed them that necessary steps would be taken to complete the investigations in their absence, added Mr Teo.
The persecution of my family by the Singapore Authorities continues unabated.
In June 2017, my sister Wei Ling and I said “We do not trust Hsien Loong as a brother or as a leader. We have lost confidence in him”. We said we feared the use of organs of the state against us and my family.
In July/August 2017, they prosecuted my son Shengwu, an economist at Harvard. After a drawn-out 3 year court case, the Singapore courts convicted him for ‘scandalising’ the judiciary.
In 2020, they prosecuted my wife over LKY’s 2013 will. I was the real target.
The relentless attacks continue.
Lee Hsien Yang says that the Singapore Authorities continue to persecute his family.
