The Principle of Fairness in Criminal Trials: Mui Jia Jun v Public Prosecutor [2018] SGCA 59

In Mui Jia Jun v Public Prosecutor [2018] SGCA 59, the Court of Appeal upheld the fundamental principle that an accused person should know with certainty, and thus have a full opportunity to meet, the case advanced against him by the Prosecution. For instance, where the Prosecution advances a composite case comprising several facets, the Prosecution should make it explicit if it is seeking a conviction based on any individual facet.
