This monograph examines how the law of corruption in Singapore has evolved from its paradigm involving a breach of duty to include the perversion of justice and, most recently, marriages of convenience. This book also deals with practical evidential issues including the indicia that the courts have looked to in determining the existence of a corrupt element in law and in fact. Relevant case extracts and explanatory notes provide the practitioner with a clear and accessible guide to the law. Published jointly by Academy Publishing and the Subordinate Courts of Singapore.
