The second edition of Evidence in Malaysia and Singapore: Cases, Materials and Commentary covers new developments in the law of evidence since publication of the last edition. The book cites some recent decisions that have changed the earlier interpretations and applications of the provisions of the Evidence Act, thus making it an even more essential practitioner tool.

Each chapter introduces the general position of the law, then sets out the important judgments of cases in Malaysia and Singapore pertaining to the topic. A comparative study of the law of the two countries is also made. The comments and opinions given on the cases and statutory provisions will be invaluable to readers.

A more important development in the law of evidence in both jurisdictions has been the amendments to both the Evidence Acts of Malaysia and Singapore. In Malaysia there were two major amendments that brought changes of significance to character evidence in rape cases, and to admissibility of evidence produced mechanically, such as tape recordings, photography, microfilms and computers.

This edition includes the provisions of section 35 of the Singapore Act on the admissibility of documents produced by computer. The latest case on its application is also highlighted.
