Posted: 10 May 2006
This article surveys the law of murder under the Penal Code of Singapore. It looks at the law in a comparative and historical context. It argues that the definition of murder is based on a fine balance between objective and subjective factors and that this balance should not be upset by the courts. It questions the more frequent resort that is being made to section 300 (c) in the drafting of charges for murder.
