New initiatives by AGC to improve professionalism & competence of prosecutors
The Attorney General Chambers (AGC) announced a slew of initiatives to enhance the professionalism and competence of prosecutors.
Attorney-General Steven Chong said Singapore's legal landscape has undergone considerable changes and challenges and prosecutors are facing increasingly intense public scrutiny.
He was speaking at the AGC's inaugural forum on Public Prosecutors today.
One initiative is a new structured attachment programme for prosecutors from the Ministries and the Statutory Boards.
They will be attached to the AGC to gain insights into its work processes.
The five-day attachment will be rolled out in the third quarter of 2013 starting with a small group of prosecutors.
The revamped Prosecutor's Handbook will also be made available to all prosecutors in the Ministries and Statutory Boards.
The AGC will also offer more extensive training opportunities to Ministries and Statutory Boards to deal with developments in the law.
Over 270 officers from the Ministries and Statutory Boards are attending the 2-day forum.
