Statements of Witnesses to the Police: A Story of Strange Bedfellows in the Criminal Procedure Code and Evidence Act
Pinsler, Jeffrey  •  [2001] Sing JLS 53 (Jul)
This article focuses on the lack of symbiosis between provisions within the Criminal Procedure Code and between that statute and the Evidence Act concerning the admissibility at trial of statements of witnesses to the police. The subject is of immense importance because the determination of guilt and innocence can often turn on the admissibility of a witness's previous statement. The article will examine the difficulties which arise from the legislation and consider the appropriateness of reform.

Restitution, Reform and Illegality: An End to Transactional Uncertainty?
Giliker, Paula  •  [2001] Sing JLS 102 (Jul)
This article examines the common law defence of illegality in contract, restitution and trust law. It operates as a bar to claims brought in relation to transactions which contravene the law or are deemed contrary to public policy. The defence frequently produces unjust results, and this has led the courts to intervene to assist claimants. Such assistance takes a number of forms, varying from a generous interpretation of illegality to the development of specific exceptions. However, in consequence, this area of law is characterised by a complex matrix of judicial interpretation and discretion with a number of ill-defined exceptions, which lead to transactional uncertainty. Litigants find it difficult to ascertain, without judicial intervention, whether they may bring an action in contract, restitution or trust law. Whilst the legislators and reformers have maintained the need for an illegality defence, this article examines recent recommendations for reform and questions whether the developing doctrine of restitution (or unjust enrichment) in English law is capable of providing an adequate basis of change. In particular, this article examines the concept of a "structured discretion" forwarded recently by the English Law Commission, and considers whether such a proposal can succeed in providing the reform this area of law badly needs.

Double Jeopardy and Abuse of Process in Professional Disciplinary Proceedings Law Society of Singapore v Edmund Nathan
Sim, Disa Jek Sok  •  [2001] Sing JLS 130 (Jul)
In 1998, a court of three judges in Law Society of Singapore v Edmund Nathan held that the rule against double jeopardy does not prevent the Law Society from initiating a second set of professional disciplinary proceedings based on the same factual matrix as the first if the first had only terminated at the inquiry committee stage. In addition, it held that the initiation of a second set of proceedings based on the same factual matrix was not an abuse of process This article seeks to argue that the rule against double jeopardy should operate to prevent subsequent disciplinary proceedings even if the first set of proceedings had terminated at only the inquiry committee stage. It goes on to argue that the rule against double jeopardy should be triggered by subsequent proceedings based on the same evidence. Alternatively, it argues that the initiation of a second set of proceedings based on the same evidence should be considered as an abuse of process. It concludes by offering some suggestions for reform.
