Serving Singapore's interests and upholding the rule of law through sound advice, effective representation, fair and independent prosecution and accessible legislation.
In response to media queries on the involvement of the Attorney-General (“AG”) in the public prosecution of PP v Parti Liyani, the Attorney-General’s Chambers (“AGC”) is issuing this statement.
The High Court released its judgment on Parti Liyani v PP on 4 September 2020. Justice Chan Seng Onn (“Chan J”) allowed the appeal against conviction and acquitted Ms Parti Liyani (“the Appellant”) of all four theft-related charges.
The remand task force in the Attorney-General's Chambers plays both an oversight and advisory role in remand matters. It works collectively with the Ministry of Home Affairs and the Singapore Police Force to monitor the overall remand population regularly with a view towards reducing the number.
