Singapore’s judicial system scores well

Posted by jtsmyth8 on October 16, 2007

Singapore’s judicial system has performed well in studies conducted by several reputable international organisations.

Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew touched on these ratings during a question-and-answer session on Sunday.

He was addressing some 3,500 lawyers from all over the world who have come to Singapore for the International Bar Association’s conference.

A UK participant said his country is obsessed with league tables in several areas of public service and asked the minister mentor: “Where do you see Singapore in the league table on the rule of law?”

Mr Lee replied: “I am not prone to self-elevation. So I will leave others to judge where I am placed in the league of tables. But my secretary had anticipated such a question being put and so he had provided me with a batch of surveys on the Singapore judiciary and the legal system.”

Among the surveys is one by the Hong Kong-based Political and Economic Risk Consultancy (PERC).
