Section 350 & 351 of the Penal Code of Singapore deals with Criminal Force & Assault. 

 

Assault and Criminal Force are offences that are often tied together. They may attract a sentence that include a jail term.

With our wealth of experience, we help you navigate through the Criminal Justice Process in the smoothest manner and with a goal of obtaining the fairest result for you.

With a Lawyer, you will be able to get advice on whether a proposal offered by the Prosecutor is reasonable and whether it is worth fighting an issue till trial. This allows you to evaluate the situation and potentially save money in the long run.

Fighting is illegal in Singapore and if caught you may be charged under Section 267A of the Penal Code. If you are found guilty you may be fined up to S$5,000.00 and be sentenced to jail for up to one-year. 

It is important to note that the sentence above is for a single charge and if you are guilty of multiple charges the fine and the jail term may be longer.

Yes, only if you hit someone in self-defence. In Singapore generally the defence of self defence is only applicable if hitting someone is your only option. If you had the option to run away or if sufficient time has passed since the provocation, this defence may not be available to you. 

 

Cases like this vary from case to case and needs to be evaluated by someone specialising in criminal law in Singapore.
