Authored and edited by a team of prosecutors under the guidance of the former Chief Prosecutor of the Criminal Justice Division (who is now the Deputy Chief District Judge of the Subordinate Courts), this book attempts to provide an insight into the raison d’être of each of the provisions in the Criminal Procedure Code 2010. It also discusses some of the jurisprudence surrounding predecessors of the provisions (where applicable) and how they might serve to form the contours of some of the provisions of the new Code.
This book serves as a useful guide to all who are involved in the administration of criminal justice in Singapore, as well as academics and students of criminal law.
