Discovery in Criminal Cases: Disclosure by the Prosecution in Singapore and Malaysia
Winslow, Valentine S.  •  (1989) 31 Mal. Law Rev. 1 (Jul)
This article attempts to describe, critically, the extent of disclosure by the prosecution authorities of evidence - whether intended to be used in summary and High Court criminal trials, or left unused - to the criminal defendant. Disclosure is studied at the pre-trial, preliminary inquiry, and trial stages. It is argues that whatever disclosures are made, by law or practice, are inadequate and unsatisfactory, that increased disclosure would be more consistent with the courts' duty to ensure a fair trial for an accused person, and that an official review of this area is overdue.

Of Codes and Ideology: Some Notes on the Origins of the Major Criminal Enactments of Singapore
Phang, Boon Leong Andrew  •  (1989) 31 Mal. Law Rev. 46 (Jul)
This article, as its title suggests, surveys the historical background to the major criminal enactments of Singapore. As a subsidiary function, it also attempts to illustrate the possible ideology underlying the enactment of one particular statute, viz, the Penal Code - a possibility that might point the way toward broader conclusions as well as studies encompassing the role and function of the law in colonial Singapore from a more general point of view.

Tax Avoidance and Section 33 of the Income Tax Act
Tan, Wee Liang  •  (1989) 31 Mal. Law Rev. 78 (Jul)
This article discusses section 33 of the Income Tax Act, Introduced by the Income Tax (Amendment) Act 1988, repealing the old section. This is the new general anti-avoidance provision. This provision empowers the Comptroller of Inland Revenue to disregard, vary, or make such adjustments and has far-reaching implications for tax-planning. The article discusses the manner in which the section may operate in the light of case-law from other jurisdictions which have similar provisions.

Marital Rape - Removing the Husband's Legal Immunity
Tan, Cheng Han  •  (1989) 31 Mal. Law Rev. 112 (Jul)
This article attempts to set out the law relating to marital rape, specific and little discussed form of violence against women. The historic basis and the contemporary arguments in favour of the spousal immunity will also be examined. Ultimately, however, it will be suggested that the immunity, archaic and inconsistent as it is with the status of women today, ought to abolished or at least substantially modified.
