He Ting Ru on reviewing Singapore’s justice system

(Updated: )

In Parliament on Wednesday (Nov 4), MP He Ting Ru said a significant proportion of accused people still appear unrepresented before the courts. She called for measures to ensure that vulnerable groups are informed of their rights and where to seek legal aid, as well as enhancements to existing legal aid and even to provide such aid automatically in certain cases. Ms He also said there is scope to improve compensation for those who have suffered a miscarriage of justice.
