Foreword by Sundaresh Menon, The Honorable, The Chief Justice of Singapore "The Judges who have undertaken this work are to be commended and indeed warmly congratulated. They have, with great commitment, undertaken an extensive update of the book treating virtually all the latest cases of significance. The authors have also reorganised the book to better align its contents to new legislation as well as to ensure that due attention is given to those offences which, though not new, have taken on greater prominence in recent years. I would unreservedly commend this book as an indispensable guide and reference."
