The Singapore’s Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) have filed a complaint against the lawyer M Ravi for releasing court documents on four cases he was handling to the local as well as international media, which include the judicial reviews, court actions and also the constitutional challenges related to the cases.
In response to the queries, the AGC informed that the complaint was filed on the 24th of January. “In each case, court documents and affidavits made by various persons were sent to the media before they had been served on the AGC,” said a spokesperson for AGC. M Ravi was informed about the complaint through a letter from the Law Society dated on the 11th of March. A copy of this private and confidential letter, was again released to the media by M Ravi. In the complaint filed, the AGC had also set out the details of three separate occasions during which M Ravi had made such statements to the media that the AGC categorized as were “calculated to interfere with the fair conduct of legal proceedings”.
“The complaint was filed on the basis that Mr Ravi’s acts contravened the rules of conduct governing advocates and solicitors in Singapore, under the Legal Profession Act. It was filed by the AGC only after a sustained period of such conduct by Mr Ravi had been observed,” said the AGC spokesperson. “Mr Ravi will have an opportunity to present his case to the Disciplinary Tribunal in due course.”
