Abstract:     
Twenty-seven years ago, Peter English rightfully lamented that the scope of the defence of duress in criminal law in Singapore was far too limited, and this was especially worrying in view of the availability of capital and mandatory sentences in this jurisdiction. Criticisms of the defence being too restrictive and proposals for reform have also been made by other writers4 and the Law Commission of India.
