One of the lawyers who defended executed prisoner Kho Jabing has apologised for possibly being in contempt of Court and for possible offense of scandalising the Court. Lawyer Alfred Dodwell responded to Attorney-General’s Chambers suggestion on 25 May that the lawyers of Kho had abused court processes in his case, by filing multiple court applications last week in a bid to delay their client’s execution.
In a letter addressed to the Registrar of the Supreme Court he agreed that parts of his initial comment “were completely baseless, misleading and in contempt of Court.” He also accepted that his allegations did not constitute fair criticism, and have scandalised the Court.
In fully withdrawing his allegations, Mr Dodwell unreservedly apologised to judges Chao Hick Tin, Andrew Phang and other judges of the Supreme Court. In saying that he regretted in making the allegations, he undertook not to make same or similar allegations in the future.
