He added that after the lunch break, he informed the trial judge Justice Aedit Abdullah that he had considered the evidence and the answers PM Lee and Dr Phan had provided and the evidence which had emerged in Court, and the admissions already made by them, and that he “did not consider it necessary to call Leong Sze Hian, the Defendant, to give evidence”.

Mr Lim wrote: “Such a move, when Defence Counsel does not call evidence for the Defence, only happens when he considers that the Plaintiff’s case is very weak and not made out, based on the Plaintiff’s own evidence. It is a decision which takes courage on the part of Counsel to make”.

Speaking to the media after the court session, Mr Lim said that during the cross-examination of Lee Hsien Loong, “we obtained the answers that we wanted”.

“He agreed with my advice that in all the circumstances there was no need for him to give evidence”, Mr Lim added, referring to his client, Mr Leong.
