Wow .... got show again ....  ::)


 case of “possible professional misconduct” by lawyer Lee Suet Fern – wife of Mr Lee Hsien Yang – in the preparation of his father and former prime minister Lee Kuan Yew's final will has been referred to the Law Society by the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC).

“In this case, AGC became aware of a possible case of professional misconduct by Ms Lee. Ms Lee appears to have prepared the Last Will of Mr Lee Kuan Yew and arranged for Mr Lee Kuan Yew to execute it, despite the fact that her husband, Mr Lee Hsien Yang, is one of the beneficiaries under the Last Will," AGC said in a statement on Monday (Jan 7).

"Mr Lee Hsien Yang’s share increased under the Last Will. AGC also noted that Mr Lee Hsien Yang had said publicly that the Last Will was drafted by Ms Kwa Kim Lee of M/s Lee & Lee. However Ms Kwa Kim Lee has denied that she drafted it,” it added.

The statement said that the case “does not relate to the validity of the Last Will of Mr Lee Kuan Yew.

Ms Lee, formerly a managing partner with law firm Morgan Lewis Stamford, has been at the centre of a dispute between the late Mr Lee’s children – her husband, Dr Lee Wei Ling and Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong – over the preparation of their father's final will.

Here are 4 things you should know about Lee Suet Fern (LSF), the wife of Lee Hsien Yang, involvement in the drafting of LKY’s will and the AGC

1 – As a daughter in-law, she drafted the Last Will overnight and her husband’s share increased. When probed, She and Hsien Yang said that LKY usual lawyer cannot be contacted. LKY was 90 years old at that point of time.

“Questions were raised about the role of his brother Hsien Yang and sister-in-law, lawyer Lee Suet Fern, in preparing the seventh and final version of the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew’s will, in a lengthy statement issued by his lawyers on Thursday (June 15) night. The document differed markedly from its previous version, in that it gave equal shares of their father’s estate to all three of his children.

This was a reversal of a decision that the late Mr Lee had made in his second-last will, in which Dr Lee Wei Ling, his only daughter, was given an extra share of the estate.”

“Unlike all the previous wills, the final one was not prepared by their cousin, Ms Kwa Kim Li, a lawyer at Lee & Lee, the firm co-founded by the late Mr Lee and his wife Kwa Geok Choo. Instead, it had been prepared by lawyers from Mrs Lee’s law firm. This happened after Ms Kwa was removed from an email list regarding the last will on Dec 16, 2013, by Mr Lee Hsien Yang.
He told his father he could not get in touch with Ms Kwa and believed she was away.

He also said he thought it was not wise to wait for her to return and suggested having lawyers from his wife’s law firm, including a partner of the firm, prepare the will and witness the signing.

On Thursday (June 15), PM Lee questioned the decision, saying that it was unclear what efforts his brother had made to get in touch with Ms Kwa. Ms Kwa had also said to Mrs Lee that she did not receive an email sent by her immediately before being removed by her husband from the email chain.

It was not clear why his brother thought there was an urgency to the signing of the last will. “It is however interesting that he suggested that his wife, clearly an interested party, and her partners would prepare the new will,” he said.
