Prosecutorial Disclosure

27 Apr 2020 CaseWatch

The Singapore Court of Appeal has recently delivered its decision in the case of Muhammad Nabill bin Mohd Fuad v Public Prosecutor [2020] SGCA 25, overturning the conviction of an accused person on capital drug trafficking offences and substituting this with a conviction on a lesser charge of drug possession. In so doing, the Court of Appeal affirmatively expanded the principles of evidential disclosure applicable in criminal proceedings in Singapore.

These expanded evidential disclosure obligations on the part of the prosecution will affect individuals who find themselves caught up in criminal proceedings, as well as companies and corporations involved in any statutory prosecutions, including tax or other statutory breaches or non-compliance.
