Edwin Tong on Constitution of the Republic of Singapore (Amendment) Bill

Singapore’s judicial and legal services will be separated to reap the benefits of greater specialisation, under changes put up for debate in Parliament on Wednesday (Nov 3). This is a matter of forward planning to meet future challenges, said Second Minister for Law Edwin Tong. He gave details of a Bill amending the Constitution to restructure the Legal Service. It sees a Judicial Service being established, with more than 200 officers overseen by a Judicial Service Commission led by the Chief Justice. The Legal Service, with more than 500 officers, will be overseen by a reconstituted Legal Service Commission led by the Attorney-General.
