Case Update: Public Prosecutor v Chua Siew Wei Kathleen [2016] SGHC 33

Public Prosecutor v Chua Siew Wei Kathleen [2016] SGHC 33

Significance: Singapore High Court orders retrial of criminal matter as it found that the trial judge: (1) had unfairly restricted the ambit of the prosecution’s cross-examination and impeded their ability to present their case fully; (2) had also impaired his own ability to evaluate and weigh the case presented by each side; (3) had failed to consider essential pieces of evidence in the course of arriving at his conclusion and had therefore arrived at findings which are, in all the circumstances, against the weight of the evidence.
