Singapore’s most famous family is in the midst of a feud. And it’s spilled into public view and has led the Prime Minister to apologize on national television. HPR’s Bill Dorman has more in today’s Asia Minute.
The Prime Minister of Singapore is Lee Hsien Loong.
His father was Lee Kuan Yew—the founder of Singapore and its prime minister for more than 30 years.
He lived for decades in the same house he moved into in 1945.
Near the end of his life, Lee Kuan Yew told reporters and others that once he died, he wanted the house torn down.
