LRWC urges the Disciplinary Tribunal of the Law Society of Singapore to dismiss the complaints currently alleged against human rights lawyer Mr. M. Ravi by the Law Society of Singapore.
Mr. Ravi is respected internationally as a prominent member of the Singapore legal community specializing in cases involving human rights. Due to a relapse in Mr. Ravi’s bipolar condition, Mr. Ravi has attracted complaints from the Law Society of Singapore. These complaints are currently before the Disciplinary Tribunal. LRWC urges the Disciplinary Tribunal to honour Singapore’s international law obligations when reviewing the complaints against Mr. Ravi, and to conclude that the complaints are not sufficiently grave to warrant further disciplinary action.
