    Default Gahmen Appoints Older Lucien Wong To Replace Old Ah Neh CJ!

    The Lee’s have been issuing statements after statements centered on their father’s house at 38 Oxley Road. One key factor which stood out in one of Lee Hsien Yang and Lee Wei Ling’s earlier statement was the detail about Lucien Wong.



    Source

    Who is Lucien Wong?

    1. Lucien Wong was PM Lee Hsien Loong’s personal lawyer and represented him during the dispute with his siblings over LKY’s estate.

    2. Shortly after the dispute started, he was quickly nominated to become Attorney General (AG).

    3. The Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC), which Lucien Wong now heads, represented the Government and successfully fended off legal challenges by LKY’s estate (see example: The Straits Times)

    4. Lucien Wong is the first ever AG to have no experience on the Bench, and to have never acted for the State in legal matters. He was a corporate lawyer (see TODAY article)

    5. Lucien Wong was appointed AG at age 63, to replace V. K. Rajah, who had to retire at age 60. When asked about Article 35(4) of the Constitution, which states that the Attorney General shall hold office until he turns 60 years old, Law Minister Shanmugam argues that the Government can arbitrarily decide to appoint someone above the age of 60. (more details at The Straits Times)

    6. Lucien Wong spent 30 years in private practice, and was chairman and senior partner at top law firm Allen & Gledhill. Shanmugam was also a senior partner at the same firm for many years before entering politics.

    [And Bonus Fact – not about Lucien Wong]

    7. The role of ‘Deputy Attorney General’ was only recently created to reflect the “increasing volume and complexity of legal work of the Government”. Earlier this year, and for the first time ever, an ex-PAP MP, Hri Kumar was appointed the Deputy AG (see this TODAY article)

    Lucien Wong is the Attorney General (AG), NOT the Chief Justice.

    I don't think Walter Woon had experience on the Bench before he became AG. On the other hand, CSK was a conveyancer @ Shook Lin before he became AG.

    You don't need to have experience on the Bench to be AG. But appointing a corporate lawyer or conveyancing lawyer oversee civil and criminal procedures is strange.

    Stand corrected but think CSK was on the Bench first before he became AG.

    Walter was SG before his appointment as AG.
    On the other hand, CSK was JC and High Court judge before his AG appointment.

    Lucien's appointment seems to suggest there is no one suitable and/or capable from both AGC and the Bench.

    Which is very strange. There are younger guys more than competent to be AG from these 2 places.

    Unless they have plans to appoint him as CJ in the near future. Then,the AG appointment makes some sense. An old man as JC won't look good, right?

    Both VK and Walter 'misbehaved.' Both have a mind of their own. Not appreciated by Pinky.

    Lucian is shamgugam's boss in A & G.

    He has never argued a case in Court while in practice.

    VK Rajah and Shanmugam do not get along.

    This is how the pieces fell.
