ABOUT THE SINGAPORE WAR CRIMES TRIALS WEB PORTAL

After the Second World War, 131 war crimes trials were held in Singapore to address atrocities committed during the war. The Singapore War Crimes Trials Web Portal (the SGWCT Web Portal) aims to provide the public with one-stop access to the Singapore Trials and to serve as a platform for discussions on accountability, justice, and the rule of law.

It features comprehensive case summaries of these war crimes trials and links to relevant archival materials hosted by other websites. In doing so, the SGWCT Web Portal aims to inspire public interest in a crucial but under-explored aspect of Singapore’s legal heritage. The Portal also aims to be a jumping off point for those seeking to learn more about the Singapore War Crimes Trials. The co-founders of the SGWCT Web Portal are Dr Cheah Wui Ling and Ms Ng Pei Yi. The Portal is kindly supported by funding from Singapore's National Heritage Board and the Singapore Academy of Law.
