has been a breath of fresh air to the law scene here. He takes on cases that many others won’t dare to touch. And he has the gumption to test the waters on matters relating to the Constitution. Who can forget his single-mindedness and sense of purpose to take on the case of drug trafficker Yong Vui Kong?  The young man is alive today primarily because of Ravi.

“If these clients can pay me as well, I can take an additional lawyer to organise my resources,’’ he is quoted as saying.

No doubt, the lawyer is stretched. After agreeing to represent the five, he also took on two high-profile cases involving blogger and former NUS law professor .
