SIAC Raises SGD125,000 for the Community Justice Centre

The Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC) is pleased to announce that, thanks to the generosity of the international and Singapore legal and business communities, it was able to raise SGD125,000 in auction proceeds, cash pledges and ticket sales from the SIAC Charity Gala Dinner held on 27 May 2016 in support of the Community Justice Centre (CJC). The SIAC Charity Gala Dinner was held as part of SIAC's 25th Anniversary Silver Jubilee celebrations, and was the social event highlight of the SIAC Congress Week held from 25 to 27 May 2016.

The CJC is an independent Singapore charity that provides support to litigants-in-person (LIPs) including the homeless, disabled and victims of domestic violence. CJC aims to provide a wide range of support services for LIPs and their family members by providing free practical and emotional support as well as free legal advice at legal clinics. Through the support of the CJC, LIPs should be able to better present their case, follow proceedings and understand judicial rulings or pronouncements in their respective cases.

SIAC would like to express its heartfelt thanks and utmost appreciation to all donors and bidders for their generous contributions. The cheque presentation ceremony will be held at the close of the Voices from the Courts fundraising concert organised by the CJC on 29 October 2016.

Ms Lim Seok Hui, CEO of SIAC and SIMC, commented, "We are deeply honoured and delighted to have been given this rare opportunity to partner with the CJC and our friends in the international and Singapore legal and business communities, to support the CJC's charitable programmes."
