Gan Thiam Poh on Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill

(Updated: )

Is there any recourse for donors under the Lasting Power of Attorney if their donees commit mismanagement or breach of trust, without going to court? This question was put forward by MP Gan Thiam Poh in Parliament on Tuesday (Jul 6). He also asked about the possibility of some form of insurance to protect donors and donees against the risk of legal suits. Mr Gan also wanted to know if there are simplified dispute resolution options available should problems arise among donors, donees and family members.
