Singapore Appeals to the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council - An Endangered Species?
Evans, Keith R. and Fordham, Margaret  •  (1985) 27 Mal. Law Rev. 284 (Dec)
With the recent abolition of appeals from Malaysia to the Privy Council, the time might now be ripe to consider whether appeals to that body should continue from Singapore. This article explores some of the issues which may influence any decision on the part of Singapore to abolish such appeals, and looks at possible changes which might be made within the existing system in preparation for eventual abolition. It concludes that abolition must, ultimately, be desirable for Singapore's legal development, but that there is nothing in the present state of affairs to justify the taking of precipitous action.

Personal Accountability of Strangers as Constructive Trustees
Hayton, David  •  (1985) 27 Mal. Law Rev. 313 (Dec)
The article deals with the question of when equity will impose a constructive trust on strangers who deal with trust property. This has traditionally occurred in two types of situations, namely where the stranger has received such property knowing of a breach of trust, and where the stranger has knowingly assisted in a fraudulent and dishonest design; in the latter case there is controversy as to whether actual or constructive notice suffices. The article criticises the classification, contending that the first category is covered by the general law of priorities, and suggests that actual notice be required for "knowing assistance".

The New International Economic Order, Investment Treaties and Foreign Investment Law in ASEAN
Sornarajah, M.  •  (1985) 27 Mal. Law Rev. 440 (Dec)
The states of ASEAN have adopted three distinct attitudes to foreign investment, each at a different level. At the international level, because of their membership of Third World groupings, they have associated themselves somewhat reluctantly, with the package of norms on foreign investment contained in the claims to a New International Economic Order. At the bilateral level, they have deviated from these norms and accepted the more traditional norms of foreign of foreign investment protection advocated by the capital-exporting States. However, there are indications in the bilateral investment treaties that such protection will not be given to all foreign investment. In their domestic laws on foreign investment, the ASEAN states, which generally believe in a strategy of foreign investment led development, have adopted a pragmatic approach. While devising mechanisms for controlling such investments to ensure that they contribute to national economic goals, they also seek to attract foreign capital by maintaining certain traditional norms of foreign investment protection. this article is a study of these trends. The general conclusion is that the ASEAN states would adhere to the pragmatic approach of maintaining national control while adhering to internationally accepted standards of investment protection.
