Head of Family Law of PKWA Law Practice Lim Chong Boon comments in the Straits Times article titled “Plan for Seniors’ Court with features for the elderly”. The article was first published on 4 March 2019.

The article shares with readers the Family Justice Courts’ intentions of setting up a new Seniors’ Court, in order for justice to be more accessible to seniors and vulnerable adults.

Below is an excerpt from the article which features comments from Lim Chong Boon:

The Family Justice Courts (FJC) is looking at setting up a Seniors’ Court with elderly-friendly features, the first of its kind here.

A spokesman for the FJC told The Sunday Times: “In response to the ageing population, it is important that we provide facilities suitable for their needs to ensure that no citizen is denied access to justice.”

Lawyer Lim Chong Boon of PKWA Law Practice said: “The Seniors’ Court is a good initiative to cater to the needs of the elderly and vulnerable adults who have been victimised or neglected. With Singapore’s ageing population, it is likely that the number of vulnerable adults will increase.”
