APPOINTMENT OF THE HONOURABLE JUSTICE BELINDA ANG AND THE HONOURABLE JUSTICE V K RAJAH TO PRESIDE OVER ARBITRATION MATTERS BEFORE THE HIGH COURT


               The Honourable the Chief Justice has appointed the Honourable Justice Belinda Ang and the Honourable Justice V K Rajah to hear arbitration matters brought before the High Court. Such matters include appeals against arbitral awards. They also include all High Court applications arising from arbitration proceedings, made under the Arbitration Act and the International Arbitration Act, such as applications for discovery, on jurisdiction of an arbitration tribunal, for enforcement of arbitral awards and for the removal of an arbitrator.

2             They will join the Honourable Justice Judith Prakash, who was appointed by the Honourable the Chief Justice on 7 April 2003 to hear arbitration matters brought before the High Court.

3             The appointments will create a group of judges in the High Court with depth of expertise and experience, to preside over arbitration matters. This will allow the High Court to hear an increased volume of arbitration matters expeditiously, and support Singapore's efforts in becoming the location of choice for commercial arbitration in the Asia-Pacific region.
