The younger brother and sister of Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said on Wednesday that they have lost confidence in his leadership and fear "the use of the organs of the state against us."

"We are concerned that the system has few checks and balances to prevent the abuse of government. We feel big brother omnipresent," Lee Wei Ling and Lee Hsien Yang said in a joint news release and an accompanying longer statement issued at 2 a.m. Singapore time on Wednesday.

As a result, Lee Hsien Yang and his wife Suet Fern are set to leave Singapore. "I have no desire to leave. Hsien Loong is the only reason for my departure," he said.
