Singapore Academy of Law honours Justice Chao Hick Tin

As a Court of Appeal judge, Justice Chao Hick Tin held the record for the highest number of dissenting judgments from his peers on the bench.

The number was more than double that of the next contender for the record, Justice Choo Han Teck.

In his lack of hesitation to depart from the majority, Justice Chao Hick Tin pursued justice and fairness, said Attorney-General Lucien Wong at a ceremony yesterday in which Justice Chao, 76, was conferred the title of Honorary Member for Life and Fellow for Life by the Singapore Academy of Law.
