Product Description

This book describes and evaluates the general principles of criminal responsibility and the major offences against the person and property contained in the Singapore Penal Code. Leading cases from Singapore and the other Indian Penal Code jurisdictions of India, Malaysia, Myanmar and Sri Lanka are considered, along with relevant cases from major common law jurisdictions. This work builds on Criminal Law in Malaysia and Singapore (LexisNexis, 3rd Ed, 2018) by the same authors. However, the reforms brought about by the Criminal Law Reform Act 2019 made it necessary to devote this book to the law of Singapore. It compares the law before and after the amendments in order to understand the reasons for the changes, and to aid the interpretation and application of the law in practice. • Comprehensive analysis of the general principles of criminal responsibility in Singapore • Analysis of the major offences against the person and property in light of the general principles of criminal responsibility • Evaluation of the amendments to the Singapore Penal Code made by the Criminal Law (Reform) Act 2019 • Review of all major relevant cases from Singapore, India, Malaysia, Myanmar and Sri Lanka • Places the law in a historical and theoretical context pointing to its strengths and weaknesses, and suggests further improvements to the law
