Courts in Singapore come under scrutiny

That’s the title of a great piece in last Tuesday’s International Herald Tribune. Do read it, a landmark case where a Canadian Court of Appeal is set to determine the fairness and impartiality of Singapore’s judicial system.

Besides, we Singaporeans generally only respond to economic incentives, pressures or impulses. This commercial dispute – between Canadian and Singaporean companies – will strengthen the integrity and independence of our judiciary.

If need be, that is.
