Ho Ching Gets Implicated By Lee Hsien Yang
Are you ready for your daily dose of Lee Hsien Yang Says?
In today’s episode, we are focusing on the wife of Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong — Madam Ho Ching.
NHB’s “Clerical Error”
Ho Ching’s name was dragged through the mire by LHY after he provided evidence of her allegedly handing over Mr Lee Kuan Yew’s documents to the National Heritage Board (NHB) as a contact of the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) — even though she holds no official position.
LHY initially claimed that Ho Ching had handed over the artifacts on 6 February 2015, a day after LKY was admitted to Singapore General Hospital’s ICU with severe pneumonia.
LHY acknowledged this later in the same Facebook post:
Incredulously, the NHB then clarified that the incident occurred on 6 April 2015, stating the wrongly recorded date as a “clerical error”.
According to TODAY, here’s what NHB said:
“All the items were loaned to NHB after (emphasis ours) the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew passed away, to be displayed at the In Memoriam: Lee Kuan Yew exhibition held at the National Museum of Singapore.”
Yes, a government department, set up to keep records and documents of Singapore’s history, just admitted to writing down the wrong date on official record.
After realizing this, one question immediately came to mind.
None of the mainstream media outlets seem to have mentioned this, so we have taken the liberty to:
Where was Ho Ching on 6 April 2015? Was she in Singapore, and if she was, was she the one who handed LKY’s items to NHB under the auspice of the PMO as LHY claimed?
LHY Questions Ho Ching
NHB’s clarification spurred LHY to raise a few more points:
This is what LHY is bothered by:
- Ho Ching is not an executor or beneficiary to LKY’s estate.
- LKY’s estate’s residual items are under the complete discretion of LHY and Dr Lee Wei Ling.
- Ho Ching’s actions could be considered stealing and interference.
- She does not hold an official position, so how is she a legitimate contact representative for the PMO?
Where Was Ho Ching?
Channel NewsAsia was quick to point out the discrepancy in LHY’s initial claims, but after NHB clarified matters, mainstream media failed to ask the important questions.
Where exactly was Ho Ching on 6 April 2015? Maybe she’s got a really good alibi, but we don’t know for sure.
