Sylvia Lim on Coroners (Amendment) Bill

On what basis can a Coroner decide not to view a body and could this potentially compromise investigations into deaths? This question was posed by MP Sylvia Lim in Parliament on Tuesday (Oct 5) during the debate on the Coroners (Amendment) Bill. Ms Lim also asked about giving the Law Minister the power to release a body at the request of a foreign state. This is if the cause of death, such as injury or onset of a medical condition, took place outside Singapore, or if the person was or had been a government official. She pointed to the possibility that the foreign country’s motivation was to cover up an assassination.
