Lee Hsien Yang, the younger brother of Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong today (June 13) issued a public letter expressing his fear of his brother Prime Minister.

In his open letter Lee Hsien Yang said that PM Lee Hsien Loong is abusing his power to make use of the government to persecute against him and his sister Lee Wei Ling.

“Since the passing of Lee Kuan Yew, on 23 March 2015, we have felt threatened by Hsien Loong’s misuse of his position and influence over the Singapore government and its agencies to drive his personal agenda. We are concerned that the system has few checks and balances to prevent the abuse of government.

We feel big brother omnipresent. We fear the use of the organs of state against us and Hsien Yang’s wife, Suet Fern. The situation is such that Hsien Yang feels compelled to leave Singapore:

“It is with a very heavy heart that I will leave Singapore for the foreseeable future.This is the country that my father, Lee Kuan Yew, loved and built. It has been home for my entire life. Singapore is and remains my country. I have no desire to leave. Hsien Loong is the only reason for my departure.””
