Walter Theseira on Supreme Court of Judicature, Judges' Remuneration, Constitution of the Republic of Singapore Amendment Bills

(Updated: )

In Parliament on Tuesday (Nov 5), NMP Walter Theseira stressed the need to safeguard the independence of Supreme Court judges. He said such protections are vital to safeguard the separation of powers and the independence of the judiciary. “In essence, they must be protected from political pressures from the honourable members of this House so that the quality and integrity of their judgements is unimpeachable,” he said during the debate on the Supreme Court of Judicature (Amendment), Judges' Remuneration (Amendment) and the Constitution of the Republic of Singapore (Amendment) Bills.
