Governance and the Rule of Law in Singapore’s Criminal and Family Justice Systems

Should the government adopt a framework based on potential harm and culpability for drug trafficking offences instead of continuing to determine penalties based on the quantum of drugs? In the academic context, what are some of the ramifications of repealing Section 377A while retaining the existing definition of marriage?  

These were a couple of the hard-hitting questions posed to Ms. Rahayu Mahzam, Senior Parliamentary Secretary (SPS) at the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Law, at a recent engagement session with the SUSS School of Law students. Jointly organised by the Ministry of Law and SUSS School of Law, these engagement sessions provide law students with an opportunity to hear from leaders in the legal industry and engage with them.
