Appeal to The Court of Appeal

My Fellow Singaporeans

After studying the reasons given by the Court and reading the official Court transcripts, my lawyers have advised that the Judge may have misconstrued the relevant Constitutional provisions. I have therefore filed an appeal to the Court of Appeal (CA No. 124 of 2017) to review the Court decision. I will leave it to my lawyers to submit the relevant legal arguments.

The appeal is likely to be heard on the week of 25 July 2017. The Court of Appeal will sit in open court. The appeal timelines were agreed beforehand between the AG and ourselves so that the case will not affect the Presidential elections in September 2017. I also appreciate the fact that Justice Loh and the High Court have done everything possible to enable this case to be heard swiftly.

I am heartened that many Singaporeans are taking a healthy interest in the law-making process and the Constitution as a result of this case. These are important things for us and our children to know. We must never take these institutions for granted.
