Additional chapter & updated contents reflecting changes to the law in 2018.

The second edition reflects the latest changes in the law up to February 2018 to clearly provide you with a holistic view on Evidence Law in Singapore. Moving beyond Singapore, the applicability of evidence law related in international tribunals is covered in the new chapter to benefit arbitrators.

The authors have added a new chapter on evidence presented before international tribunals in Singapore. This chapter forms a suitable juxtaposition between domestic and international tribunals such as the SICC and SIAC, with these two institutions being cornerstones of Singapore's strategic vision to be a world-class dispute resolution hub. Since the last edition, both the High Court and Court of Appeal have issued important clarifications on various critical areas of evidence law such as:

1. Phosagro Asia Pte Ltd v Piattchanine, Iouri [2016] SGCA 61, dealing with burden and standard of proof

2. Public Prosecutor v Shanmuga Nathan Balakrishnan [2016] SGHC 95, dealing with hearsay

3. Public Prosecutor v Ranjit Singh Gill Menjeet Singh [2016] SGHC 217, dealing with similar fact

4. Hii Chii Kok v Ooi Peng Jin London Lucien [2017] SGCA 38, dealing with opinion evidence

5. ARX v Comptroller of Income Tax [2016] SGCA 56, dealing with privilege

General updates to the established case law and also statutory developments.
