Seeing what happened to the initial 6 who were publicly named, the writing is on the wall (i.e. that he and the other remaining 4 would be publicly named too). He probably saw that and knows he'll be unemployable for the foreseeable future.

As reported, both he and Lynn Kuek took the same approach of trying to downplay their conduct, unlike the other 5 who fessed up the moment they came under SILE investigation. So in the public's eyes, his conduct is even more egregious.

The withdrawal is probably an attempt to portray remorse. Sorta like an act of hara kiri, falling on his sword to rehabilitate his public image. In truth, he likely has little inclination or motivation to continue pursing admission or gainful employment in the legal sector anyways.

My 2cents of the possible strategy here.

Where's the reported judgment on this?

about the five year thing, not clear based on public reporting that he applied to withdraw on that basis. more likely it was imposed by CJ as a compromise between dismissal asked for by AG and unconditional withdrawal. ("... allowed to withdraw his application to be called to the Bar after he agreed to two conditions set by the court.")\

(interesting legal question - any difference between withdrawal and dismissal of AAS? is there such a thing as res judicata for AAS?)

before we speculate that he is trying a strategy, where he seeks anonymity as some sort of exchange for withdrawal (as opposed to the adjournments for the six), we should probably look at the timelines.

[2022] SGHC 87 was heard on 13 april and decided on 18 april.

ST reports that he applied to withdraw his application on 22 april and sealing and redaction was only sought later. ie, not at time of his application. this is somewhat against the theory that he applied to withdraw to avoid further publicity.

it should also be noted that the AG's application to rescind the sealing order was heard and allowed in [2022] SGHC 93 on 27 april. therefore, at the time of his application, for all he knows, he can expect similar treatment to the six - adjournment and anonymity.

Actually why can't we turn the tables around and join ceca law firms? We speak english and are common law qualified.

Cyril Amarchand or Khaitan & Co hiring?

Frankly I thought the post by the lawyer was misguided and ended up giving the matter much more publicity than it otherwise would have gotten, not to mention trying to put a positive spin to a matter that is impossible to defend. But maybe they had their reasons. Some of the criticisms have been uncalled for though.

Ex-Catholic and EP at major firm here. This is true. Catholicism is a tool of the New World Order used to control the minds of the people of the Global South within a neocolonialism context. I quit the religion after refusing to follow orders of the Vatican and NWO overlords.

Those who are old enough to remember Operation Spectrum will know how Singapore confronted the existential threat posed by the New World Order.
