Lee Kuan Yew could easily have made another will, suspended lawyer says

In a statement released through Lee Hsien Yang's Facebook account, lawyer Lee Suet Fern, who was suspended from practice for 15 months after she was found guilty of misconduct over the handling of the last will of founding prime minister Lee Kuan Yew, said: “I disagree with this decision. There was no basis for this case to have even been initiated."

She added that Lee Kuan Yew "knew what he wanted" and "got what he wanted."

"The Court of Three did not find that he was of unsound mind or that he was not in control. He made the decision to revert to his landmark 2011 will following discussions with his lawyer Kwa Kim Li before I was tasked to find a witness.

"Anyone can revoke their own will while they are alive. If this will was not what Lee Kuan Yew wanted, he could easily have made another, as he had done several times before," said Mrs Lee.
