August 21, 2018 5:13 pm
Justice Quentin Loh has been appointed a Judge of Appeal of the Supreme Court of Fiji on the non-resident panel effective from 15th of this month.
His appointment will be for a period of three years in the first instance and will be held by Justice Loh concurrently with his appointment as full-time Judge of the Supreme Court of Singapore.
Justice Loh will spend three weeks in Fiji in a year to hear cases in an appellate capacity.
He will sit together with Judges of the Supreme Court and it’s expected that he will, in the main – hear commercial and civil cases.
Chief Justice Sundaresh Menon says that such appointments reflects the high regard in which the Singapore Judiciary is held and it will enhance our standing as a leading legal and judicial centre in Asia.
Justice Loh was honoured by the appointment afforded to him to experience a different judicial environment and to help enhance the warm relations between Singapore and Fiji.
The move follows a similar appointment of Justice Judith Prakash as a Judge of Appeal on a part-time basis in the Dubai International Financial Centre Courts in March last year.
