Ex-Taiwanese representative to Singapore has ‘close’ ties with Lee Kuan Yew’s son – Taiwanese media
Posted by temasektimes on July 19, 2012
Lee Kuan Yew is a former Prime Minister of Singapore and still wields tremendous influence behind the scenes though he is no longer a cabinet minister.
Lee has two sons – Lee Hsien Loong, the present Prime Minister of Singapore and Lee Hsien Yang, currently the CEO of a public-listed company in Singapore.
However, Shi rubbished the rumors immediately, claiming that she did not know both Lees.
In a public statement issued yesterday, Shi said:
“There is no such thing. Many rumors are without foundation or truth…..they not only cause distress to those involved, but also very rude to Lee Kuan Yew’s son. I have clarified repeatedly that when I would never transgress the boundaries in the course of my diplomatic work. I have never met or contacted the public figures in question.”
The news was not reported in the Singapore media which is completely owned and controlled by the government headed by Lee.
