This is the second edition of Criminal Law in Malaysia and Singapore – A Casebook Companion. The book comprises a selection of some of the leading Malaysian and Singaporean cases which make compulsory reading for a standard criminal law course. Where local cases are unavailable or do not adequately discuss a topic, cases from other jurisdictions such as India, England and Australia have been included. The book serves as an ideal companion to the textbook by the authors Criminal Law in Malaysia and Singapore (LexisNexis, 2nd Ed, 2012) to which cross-references to relevant paragraphs are made discussing the case at hand.
The second edition of this book has been updated with recent cases, including:
• Wong Seng Kwan v Public Prosecutor  SGHC 81
• Ong Pang Siew v Public Prosecutor  1 SLR 606
• Public Prosecutor v AFR  3 SLR 653
• R v Maybin 2012 SCC 24, Supreme Court of Canada
Legal practitioners will find this casebook useful for highlighting those parts of often lengthy judgments on a particular issue for study.
