There will be a full hearing before the disciplinary tribunal appointed by the Chief Justice.

The two-member tribunal, headed by a Senior Counsel, will hear the parties involved as well as relevant witnesses who are all subject to cross-examination. After considering all submissions and material, it will determine if there is misconduct.

If the charges are found to be groundless, it will recommend the case be dismissed. If  there is a finding of misconduct, it may recommend a financial penalty of up to S$20,000 or a reprimand which is to be decided by The Law Society’s governing council. The tribunal can complete its task within six months. /TISG
