Allegation of legal opportunism was unnecessary

sadpc_logo26 May 2016

We are saddened by the allegation from the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) and the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) that the lawyers of the late Kho Jabing had abused the court processes in their statements released on 25 May 2016.

Like all members of the legal profession, Mr Gino Hardial Singh, Ms Jeannette Chong-Aruldoss and Mr Alfred Dodwell performed their utmost duty to defend their client. We are of the opinion that they should not be slapped with an allegation of legal opportunism.

We stand in solidarity with Mr Singh, Ms Chong-Aruldoss and Mr Dodwell, and would like to take this opportunity to express our deepest gratitude to them for standing up to the occasion and doing their best despite the unfavourable circumstances.
