A summary of all summaries on the Lee Suet Fern exposé - responses from all sides

May 23, 2020 | 🚀 Fathership AI

A two-man Disciplinary Tribunal has found Lee Suet Fern (LSF), lawyer and wife of Lee Hsien Yang (LHY), guilty of professional misconduct over her involvement in preparing the final will of Singapore's founding leader, Lee Kuan Yew (LKY).

LSF has since responded in a statement made to South China Morning Post via Whatsapp today (Feb 23):

"I disagree with the disciplinary tribunal's report and will fight this strongly when it is heard in open court." LSF also urged the public to obtain records fo the closed-door proceeding and "come to their own independent conclusions".

Background on the case

LSF was accused of possible professional misconduct by the Attorney-General's Chambers (AGC) in January 2019 over the preparation of the last will of LKY. LSF placed herself in a position of conflict - which was against legal rules - as her husband LHY was one of the beneficiaries. LHY shares increased under the last will.

Who Lee Suet Fern and Lee Hsien Yang claimed as the one who drafted LKY's final will

Both LSF and LHY said on oath that LKY's personal lawyer Kwa Kim Li (KKL) had drafted the last will. The allegations were repeated by LKY's daughter Lee Wei Ling (LWL) in a Facebook post shared in April last year, which was also re-shared by LHY:

https://www.facebook.com/LeeHsienYangSGP/posts/2330565710516858

The Facebook posts also gave the impression that LSF had no role in preparing the last will.

LSF herself posited that she was merely helping LHY with "his...chore for his father" and that her position was "just a conduit" between her husband LHY who she claims was handling the will and her colleague, Bernard Lui who had attended to the last will and signed as a witness to the same.

Lee Hsien Yang admits Facebook posts were misleading and inaccurate; Lee Suet Fern contradicted herself during cross-examination

LHY who was cross-examined by the tribunal as a witness, confessed that aspects of the Facebook posts could be misleading and inaccurate and that he lied to the public by dishonestly accusing KKL of lying despite knowing that KKL had in fact told the truth that she did not draft the last will.

LSF on the other hand discounted her role as the lawyer who drafted the final will during cross-examination but was pointed out by the tribunal that she was the only lawyer responsible for the last will after having acquiesced in cutting out KKL from the drafting of the final will.

It was also pointed out by the tribunal that LSF herself told the AGC in December 2018 that LKY had given her instructions to have his last will engrossed, or finalised - instructions that saw her as the main key figure in the process.

At the same time, the tribunal said, it seemed that LKY himself had taken LSF as his lawyer for this last will, instead of KKL. This is supported by LKY's instructions to his personal assistant to only send KKL a copy of the will - an action that differed from his usual practice, as he had asked KKL to keep the originals for the six previous versions of his wills that she had drafted.

Lee Suet Fern suppressed evidence and gave untruthful answers

LSF's colleague and LKY's private secretary, lawyer Bernard Lui had produced documents supporting his affidavit in July last year. The documents were classified as evidence but it was not disclosed by LSF in her filed affidavit submissions to the tribunal.

In fact, LSF had falsely stated she had disclosed all relevant documents when she had knowingly and deliberately withheld Lui's documents.

Lui's documents contained email exchanges between Lui's colleague, lawyer Elizabeth Kong and LSF. LSF had asked what transpired during the 15 minutes when they were at LKY's house (38 Oxley Road) on 17 December 2013 to sign the final will.

The exchange recounted LKY's queries on who drafted the last will. Twice during the session, LKY had asked the two lawyers - Lui & Elizabeth - to tell him who had drafted the will. The first reply from Lui was that it was LSF. When asked again, Lui said it was LSF and KKL.

On hearing that, he signed the final will.

Lee Suet Fern's lawyer Walter Woon decries tribunal's claims as "totally implausible"; tribunal rebuts

Walter Woon pointed out that if LSF and LHY had meant to cut KKL out, “there was no reason to send her a copy of the draft Will before execution nor to tell her after the event that it had been done."

Woon also asserted, “The Tribunal is being invited to make a finding that Mr Lee did not understand his own Will despite reading and re-reading it not just once but several times.”

“The alternative which the Law Society is putting forward is that Mr Lee Kuan Yew, a very brilliant lawyer and world statesman, did not understand his own will despite reading it several times.”

The tribunal however noted that LKY's health during that period was frail.

In an e-mail to Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong's wife Ho Ching on Dec 16, 2013, LWL told her sister-in-law that her father had "been doing very well" because he had not been admitted to hospital for more than a month.

She added that she thought "age has caught up with his brain".

In another 2014 e-mail to Ho, recounting the happenings of Dec 16, 2013, LWL had said of her father: "By now, Pa was already (very) forgetful."

At 90 years old in December 2013, LKY had been in hospital for several weeks, with a string of ailments, from pneumonia to minor strokes.

It was under those circumstances that his last will was signed in a hurry, unlike the deliberate process he had used for previous wills.

"Mr Lee, who was very frail and in poor health, was misled by the very people whom he trusted: his son, Mr Lee Hsien Yang, and daughter-in-law, the respondent," the tribunal said.

Elizabeth Kong, one of the two lawyers that had taken notes of the meeting with LKY wrote: “LKY appeared frail and his speech was slurred, but his mind was certainly lucid when he asked us who drafted the will and specifically instructed us to date the will today."

The tribunal concluded that Mrs Lee "managed every aspect of the process", with her husband actively involved, and the circumstances in which they did so raised "serious questions" about their motives.

The final will was signed on Dec 17, 2013 before LKY died on March 23, 2015 at the age of 91.

新加坡7人“换妻”迷奸案细节公布!妻子被下药,全程录像直播...

Nov 03, 2022 | 🚀 Fathership AI

几名新加坡男子,在网上论坛认识后,沉浸在性幻想中无法自拔。

为了满足他们心中变态的好奇心,他们开始筹划换妻,并下药迷倒自己的妻子,让其他男子强奸自己的妻子!

昨天(10月31日),这起轰动新加坡一时的罪案在新加坡法庭进行了审理,涉案的七人中,有四人认罪,其中一人当场被判刑。

因为情况太过恶劣,为了保护受害人法院并未透漏她们的任何资料。被告人的名字也全部用字母代替。

回顾这起案件,这些男子的行径着实震碎了正常人的三观……

新加坡这名男子迷倒妻子 邀请其他人强奸并直播录像!

新加坡本体媒体《8视界新闻网》报道,法庭文件透露这起案件的主犯,是一名化名为J的新加坡男子。

J今年52岁,有着一份正当的工作,犯案时是一名业务拓展经理。这些年他和妻子一共生下了三个孩子,一家人原本很和谐地生活在一起。

不过在平静的生活下,J内心里涌动着一些邪恶的想法。

终于,在2010年,他在一个网络论坛上遇到了很多和自己臭味相投的人。在这个虚拟的平台,J肆无忌惮表露出自己的变态性癖,并发表了想玩换妻游戏的言论。

在这里,他们一起分享了很多有关“换妻”的想法。

聊着聊着,有一天他再也忍不住自己内心的想法,问自己妻子是否愿意接受3p。不出所料的,J的妻子拒绝了这个“提议”。

不过,这并没有阻止J付诸行动。

在一开始,包括J在内的一些人纷纷在家中安装网络摄像头。之后,他们会挑选时间告知网友相关的账号和密码,让他们自行观看自己和妻子的性爱视频。

经过一段时间后,J还是不满足。

于是,在某一天他下药迷晕了自己的妻子,然后邀请其他网友来家中与其发生关系!

随着事态的发展,J越来越沉迷其中……2013年,趁着妻子身体不适的时候,J还偷偷换了药物,再次邀请朋友来家中迷奸妻子。

这次,J竟然还打开了网络直播!

沉迷于“换妻游戏”,J不仅仅是让别人和自己妻子发生关系,同时他也跟其中一名网友K“商量好了”,趁着K迷晕自己妻子的工夫和她发生了性关系。

在某种程度上,K的行为更加恶劣,他甚至自己充当了摄像师的角色,拍下了J和自己妻子发生关系时的整段性爱视频……

渐渐的,J的妻子在不知情的情况下跟多人发生了性行为,相关视频还被上传到网络。

在当时,引起了相当多人的关注。

换妻行为曝光报警 更多人牵涉其中受重罚

J本以为这件事可以一直继续下去,不料在今年,他的妻子无意中看见丈夫手机在播放视频。

在好奇心的驱使下,她看到视频内容,这才恍然发现:

在过去的几年里,丈夫在暗地里进行了多次换妻活动,而自己在不知情的状态下被多次迷晕,在和他人强行强行发生关系后还被拍照记录……

拿着证据,J的妻子当面质问K,而K也承认自己曾经和昏迷的她有过性行为,并将自己妻子迷晕交给J的事实。

在得知真相后,J的妻子立即选择报警。随着案件的调查,调查人员惊讶地发现,还有更多人参与其中。

其中,有一名参加了J“举办的”换妻活动的L,也对自己的妻子如法炮制。

在一次在作案时,L的妻子尽管被下药后蒙住眼睛,在中途清醒了过来。

但L居然并未因此感到害怕而终止犯罪活动,而是要求自己一名同事P直接强行跟自己妻子发生关系,幸而L的妻子及时挣脱逃离,才免遭摧残。

之后,P在一封信中交代了全部经过,并表示自己不知道受害人并不知情才犯下罪案。

但法律并不会因为他的解释而对他开恩,最总P被判处三年监禁。他是涉案七名男子中,第一个被判刑的男子。

还有四人也已认罪,等待下一轮审讯。相信在严明的法律下,他们肯定无法逃脱坐牢。

不过,涉案情节严重的K在落网后,一再向警方和法官说自己有心理疾病,并要求医生为其检测,意图逃脱刑罚。

新加坡心理卫生院诊断后,确认了K患有偷窥症。但在审理中法官认为K对自己的非法行为是知情的,依旧是犯罪行为。

K对法院的说法表示不服,并要求开庭申辩。

但K的犯罪事实已被揭露,并且为自己的行为供认不讳,加上此案件牵连甚广,性质过于恶劣,估计也是难逃法律制裁。
