The judiciary in Asia

15 Sep

An AFP survey out today has found that Hong Kong and Singapore have the best judicial systems in Asia.

But the reports admits that the survey only involved expatriate business executives, and not activists in countries like Singapore:

“This bias is possibly most obvious in Singapore,” it said, noting that the city-state’s top rating in the survey is not shared by political activists, who have criticised the ruling People’s Action Party (PAP) for using the judiciary to silence critics.

So is this result something that Singapore can be proud about?
