This section comprises the summaries of notable judgments in the past 12 months. Summaries are prepared for selected cases which involve important or significant legal principles or issues, issues of public interest, issues that attract strong media or public interest, and/or for educational purpose. The section aims to assist the public to understand the notable judgments and hence is not intended to be exhaustive. Please visit the Judiciary website for reference to other cases not covered in this section.
(The summaries of notable judgments contained in this section are prepared by the Department of Justice (DoJ) based on DoJ's own interpretation and understanding of the judgments of the courts concerned. The summaries are not legal advice and should not be relied upon by anyone as such. The summaries have no legal effect and are not intended to be cited as authorities of any kind. To fully understand the legal effect of the courts' judgments, the whole judgments of the courts concerned should be looked at.)
