- Anti-suit injunctions
This chapter assesses Singapore law. The Singapore law on anti-suit injunctions follows the broad contours of English law and the jurisprudence of the Privy Council, with both the Singapore High Court and the Singapore Court of Appeal contributing to its development. There has been a steady stream of clams and applications for such injunctions since the Singapore courts first had the occasion to consider the question in 1993. Leaving aside the context of injunctions to protect arbitration, permanent and interim anti-suit injunctions are granted in Singapore under the broad powers conferred on the High Court by Section 18(2) and paragraph 14 of Schedule 1 of the Supreme Court of Judicature Act to grant ‘all reliefs and remedies at law and in equity’ and section 4(10) of the Civil Law Act.
