Brother of former Singapore PM ordered to pay $296,000 in defamation suit

24/5/2024 16:23
        The brother of former Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has been ordered by a court to pay S$400,000 ($296,000) to two government ministers in a defamation suit, according to a written judgment published on Friday.
        
        Lee Hsien Yang, the estranged younger brother of the former prime minister, made defamatory allegations against the two ministers "of the gravest kind", wrote Justice Goh Yihan.
        
        The allegations "go towards their personal integrity, professional reputation, honour, and core attributes of their personalities", wrote the judge.
        
        The younger Lee was ordered by the government in July 2023 to correct a Facebook post the law ministry said contained falsehoods about a controversy over the two cabinet ministers renting state properties.
        
        The government had in June 2023 cleared the two ministers of wrongdoing, saying there was no evidence to suggest abuse of position for personal gain.
