About this Event

The 31st Singapore Law Review Annual Lecture

A Tale of Two Cities: SQ 006 and the Issue of State Immunity for Taiwan

The 31st Singapore Law Review Annual Lecture deals with the role of the Common Law courts in determining the status of an entity claiming Statehood in the face of Executive silence: the question as to the approach taken is especially critical where the aforesaid entity seeks to invoke the State Immunity, a doctrine which can only be relied upon by States.

The lecturer, Dr Michael Hwang S.C., will situate the discussion of the aforementioned Public International Law issue within the context of litigation arising out of the Singapore Airlines Flight 006 accident at Chiang Kai-shek International Airport (now Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport), and against the Civil Aviation Authority of Taipei, before the courts in Singapore and Canada (Quebec). Notably, Dr Hwang S.C. would be sharing a comparative analysis of the differing legal positions staked out by judges in these two Common Law countries.
