Jumadi v PP concerns section 33B of the Misuse of Drugs Act, a provision that incentivises accused persons to cooperate with CNB officers so as to obtain a certificate of substantive assistance and escape the gallows. The notice, which brings s 33B to the attention of the accused, cannot be construed as an inducement or promise because otherwise, statements recorded after the issuance of the notice would be rendered inadmissible as evidence. In Jumadi v PP, Jumadi claimed that CNB officers made him a promise before the notice was issued, and in any case, the notice was an inducement, thereby challenging the admissibility of his statements. Unsurprisingly, the Court of Appeal dismissed all his claims.
Exotic weapons, flashy guns, and explosive fight scenes – these are the fundamental parts of James Bond movies. If you’ve become a fan of medieval weaponry (i.e. guns, swords, knives) after seeing them used by 007, you’d probably want to purchase them online from overseas dealers and ship them to you in Singapore. However, be warned – just as secret agents require a license to kill, you also require a license to bring such items into Singapore.
