The major crimes against persons and property listed in the Singapore Penal Code are described in this book, together with general principles of criminal culpability. Along with pertinent cases from significant common law jurisdictions, leading cases from Singapore and the other Indian Penal Code jurisdictions of India, Malaysia, Myanmar, and Sri Lanka are taken into consideration. The same authors' 2018 LexisNexis third edition of Criminal Law in Malaysia and Singapore serves as the foundation for this publication. However, the Criminal Law Reform Act 2019's changes necessitated that this book specifically focus on Singaporean law. In order to comprehend the rationale behind the modifications and to facilitate the practical interpretation and application of the legislation, it compares the law before and after the alterations.
