Dr Lee denies signing online petition

Dr Lee Wei Ling has said that she did not sign an online petition calling for a stop to the "personal attacks and character assassination" of Singapore Democratic Party (SDP) chief Chee Soon Juan.

In a Facebook post yesterday, Dr Lee labelled talk that she had lent her support to the petition as "false", saying: "I have a very poor opinion of Dr Chee, and do not think he is fit to be in Parliament.

"The man has not changed at all, though he is now posing as a changed man, using his family."

Dr Lee also echoed earlier comments made by her brother, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, that Dr Chee had been hypocritical at the SDP's first rally for the Bukit Batok by-election last Friday (April 29).

ADMITTED

She wrote: "Last week, he allowed his speakers to attack (former Bukit Batok MP) David Ong and then came on stage and pretended to be magnanimous and said we should not attack character. When pressed, he admitted he knew what the fellow speakers were going to say.

"What do you say about such a man? And having made character attacks, when this is pointed out, he then played the martyr, saying his character is being attacked."

She added: "I will never support such a person..."
