Notable cases

Re Aathar Ah Kong Andrew [2017] SGHCR 4

Successfully set aside a debtor’s Voluntary Arrangement on the grounds of material irregularity. Haziq assisted in arguing that a) a debtor has a duty of full and candid disclosure to all creditors for him to enter into a VA with his creditors and b) the nominee in charge of overseeing the VA must exercise his professional judgement and cast a critical eye over the debtor’s VA proposal and state of affairs. This was a novel case for Singapore law.

Praveen s/o Krishnan v Public Prosecutor [2018] 3 SLR 1300

Successfully appealed against the District Court’s decision to sentence accused person to a term in the Reformative Training Centre. On appeal, Steven Chong JA agreed with the argument that the accused apparent lack of candour with regard to the full extent of his drug activities should not have impacted the probation office and District Judge’s view of his rehabilitative capacity. As such, accused was then sentenced to probation.
