Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong's nephew Li Shengwu may or may not be in trouble for a critical comment about Singapore's judiciary, but the dude certainly isn't too troubled by it.

He also made a comment criticising the court system in Singapore. He also said he was "somewhat surprised" that what he had said "has been enough to trigger a response from the Attorney-General's Chambers". "This constrains what the worldwide media can usually report". He also criticised the Singapore court system.

In response to media queries, the AGC said on Monday it is aware of the post and is looking into the matter.

"I'm surprised that the Singapore government is so petty". He clarified that the post in question was set to be seen by "friends only" and not deleted as reported.

"Is there a government servant whose duty is to follow the Facebook activity of all people related to Hsien Yang and I, including our private musings".

She asked: "Is this not an example of "Big Brother" government", using the famous phrase from George Orwell's 1984 novel to refer to an authoritarian government which exercises total control over its citizens. Perhaps it is a case of "if the hat fits, take it".

Last month, he said on Facebook that over the last few years, his immediate family had become increasingly anxious about what he alleged as a lack of checks on abuse of power.

And the Lee family saga goes on.

Mr Lee Hsien Yang and Dr Lee had been embroiled in a public dispute with PM Lee over the fate of their father's Oxley Road home since mid-June.

Shortly after, his siblings published a joint statement on Facebook and said that they would "cease presenting further evidence on social media" for the time being, provided that they and their father's wishes are "not attacked or misrepresented".
