Anthea Ong on Supreme Court of Judicature (Amendment), Judges' Remuneration (Amendment), Constitution of the Republic of Singapore (Amendment) Bills

(Updated: )

NMP Anthea Ong urged the Government to consider security of tenure for judges to ensure full independence. She said this on Tuesday (Nov 5), during the debate on the Supreme Court of Judicature (Amendment) Bill, the Judges' Remuneration (Amendment) Bill and the Constitution of the Republic of Singapore (Amendment) Bill. She suggested raising the retirement age to 70, with optional retirement at 65 instead of having renewal of appointments. This way, Singapore can also retain the services of older yet experienced and able judges, she said.
